The Netherlands' Central Government Real Estate Agency has awarded the contract for the renovation of Mandemaat 3 in Assen to BAM Bouw en Techniek, who partnered with Fokkema & Partners Architecten for the winning design.

The Mandemaat 3 Design & Build project entails the renovation of a Government Office Building originally designed in the eighties. Mandemaat 3 is a shared accommodation for various Government Offices. The project has a GLA of approximately 12.000 m2 and is due to be completed in 2018.

Smart and practical design solutions improve the spatial quality of the building interior while integrating an innovative working concept. Social areas open up the building towards the green courtyards. These areas also provide the user with orientation and a space to encounter.
