KAAN Architecten to design New Amsterdam Court House
KAAN Architecten is part of the New Amsterdam Court House (NACH) consortium that will be implementing the Amsterdam Court House Project. The Central Government Real Estate Agency (Rijksvastgoedbedrijf) has provisionally selected the consortium for this Public Private Partnership (PPP). Following contract award, KAAN Architecten will be given a share in the design of the court house. The value of the DBFMO project is € 235 million (including a 30-year management and maintenance contract). Final contract award is expected to occur on 10 May 2016.
Design, construct and operate
A special purpose company will be created for the implementation of the project with Macquarie Capital as the sole shareholder. KAAN Architecten, together with a/o ABT, Heijmans and Facilicom, will form a combination that will design, construct and operate the court house. Demolition work for the construction of the new court house along the Zuidas in Amsterdam is expected to commence at the beginning of 2017. The court house is expected to be occupied in November 2020. The 30-year operating period will commence once the building has been occupied.
The NACH Consortium is initiated by Macquarie Capital, ABT, DVP, KAAN Architecten, BiUM, and Bouwbedrijf M.J. de Nijs & Zonen. Additionally, the consortium has been extended with Heijmans and Facilicom.
