Teijin - Arnhem
In the city of Arnhem, The Netherlands, the former laboratory of Teijin Aramid is remodeled to serve as their new worldwide headquarters. The building was stripped to the concrete base and then rebuilt to modern day standards. This remodel is designed by APTO Architects and was executed by main contractor BAM. Sorba was asked as a subcontractor for the façade. This was the first time Sorba provided the whole package from steel frame system (SFS) to the façade cladding.
The laboratory building was completely stripped to the concrete base. After that the building had to be rebuild with modern techniques and installations. The façade also got a new and contempory look. This was achieved through the use of three coloured aluminium composite material Alpolic (Blue-grey, White and Anodized). Sorba has used a steel frame structure. A steel frame structure is more durable and sustainable, but also gives a high-quality final result. The steel frames were installed on the concrete base, where after the insulation and Alpolic cladding were installed. In total 3130 m² of steel frame structure and 2455 m² of Alpolic cladding was installed. Sorba also developed and installed the fronts and curtain walls. You could say we provided the entire façade package, even the blinds.
