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