Providing flexibility as a basis and client-specific capabilities as a starting point is important to Kadans Science Partner. To create the optimal working environment for projects with our clients, Kadans has extensive experience with the fit-out process and is happy to design, coordinate and realise opportunities for its clients.
All floors of buildings developed by Kadans are delivered Cat A+. This means that the structural skeleton, necessary central facilities and the primary technical installations for heating, electricity and ventilation, among other things, are already in place. Based on your lab and office design, the necessary installations are connected to these central facilities. The floors are virtually free of columns and can therefore be partitioned freely within a certain grid. This allows you, the client, to easily configure office space and where labs will be located for projects during the fit-out design.
During the fit-out process, the desired layout and required utilities are considered for interior space. The user’s primary process serves as the starting point. This includes technical facilities and other user-specific adjustments. Kadans lab and office designs and coordinates this fit-out, in close consultation with the client. Kadans offers various workshops to support clients in designing their future accommodation in the best possible way.
Workshops and final fit-out design and investment
The lab and office fit-out design process is an intensive workshop-based process. The process results in a tailor-made spatial layout with technical facilities. In outline, three workshops are held:
During the first workshop, the layout for the office fit-out process is designed. This involves looking at the division between labs and offices, size, interdependencies and occupancy and making an indicative layout with lab and office furniture.
Workshop 2 focuses on the equipment level and desired utilities. This involves looking at the technical connections, numbers and capacities. In addition, the spatial layout and design from the earlier workshop is fine-tuned.
After the fit-out design is ready in draft form, final adjustments are discussed. The layout and facilities are finalised. The final fit-out design is translated into an investment proposal, which may also be translated into an additional rent per m2 per year.
After agreement on the final fit-out design for lab and office space and the associated investment, the translation and engineering for realisation follow. Kadans coordinates the work of the contracted executing parties and works closely with the client and other disciplines such as the supplier of the laboratory furnishings and interior builder to ensure a high-quality fit-out.
