World of Westland:

Netherlands: Smiemans to build 'WOW' glass construction

Smiemans Projecten has recently been assigned to build the superstructure of the knowledge and innovation centre “World of Westland”. This special project “WOW” will be an international platform for horticulture where research, education and business come together.



Smiemans starts in mid-March with the glass construction with a surface of 4.520m2. The glass roof is 12.30 meters high, this is high enough for two floors with shared facilities for ± 300 guests, such as an auditorium, meeting rooms, flexible workstations and a restaurant.



Several companies are going to use these facilities, some are also going to settle there. Next to the glass building a school and greenhouses for research will be built which will lead to innovation 365 days a year.



The projects of Smiemans are often abroad, this time close by in its own region Westland.
