Building M forms the center of the Novio Tech Campus. The Novio Tech Campus is an exclusive collaboration between NXP, the province of Gelderland, the City of Nijmegen, Radboud University and Kadans. This former NXP site used to house a number of production plants and R&D facilities. Since the technology used in several plants became outdated, production and support facilities were closed. The fact that NXP discontinued its activities in Building M, did not stop them to partner up with other semiconductor-related companies which created a unique situation. In 2013, Kadans started with redevelopment “Gebouw M”, transforming a former production facility into a high-end multi-tenant accommodation with office, laboratory, cleanroom, and general meeting facilities. The renovation and operation of Building M became the driving force behind the development of Novio Tech Campus.
Building M has been renovated into a unique multi-tenant complex for businesses active in the semiconductor, life sciences and health industry. Since the renovation, Novio Tech Campus offers a state-of-the-art research and production facility that offers specialized accommodation, including facilities, for a broad range of users.
The combination of companies active in the semiconductor, life sciences and health field is unique in the Netherlands. Parties are convinced that this combination adds value thanks to the overlap and complementary nature of their activities. Realizing cross-fertilization and synergy between occupants is the core of Novio Tech Campus, an ambition supported by its Meet & Greet facilities, Briskr and other options for interaction. Another distinguishing quality of Novio Tech Campus is the support and service that Kadans, as building manager, can provide its tenants. This ‘total care’ concept allows users to focus on their core business.
