Genmab Research & Development Center is located on Utrecht Science Park. The development covers 11,250 m2 of research facilities, laboratories, offices, facilitated spaces and an underground parking garage.
The accommodation is designed by architecture agency cepezed. Genmab’s explicit wish was to create spaces where (inter)national scientists can meet each other.
The building is located on a prominent location along the main access road of the Science Park, nearby Nutricia Research. It reflects the core qualities of its user as high quality, innovative, dynamic, transparent and recognizable. There is an open structure with 16 meter long spans and long sightlines. The building exists of two sections that appear to be shifted away from each other, with vertical facades and in between a prominently visible atrium with gradually positioned ‘floating isles’, that strongly contribute to the interaction between various users. The workspace is of high quality, offers optimal comfort and is highly functional and flexible. Source

International biotech company Genmab uses the location for research and the development of therapeutic antibodies, mainly for the treatment of cancer.
For Kadans, the acquisition of the building matches the ambition to add sustainable buildings with knowledge-intensive users to their portfolio. Thanks to Genmab, the location and the sustainable character of the research facility is an excellent addition to the current portfolio.
The Genmab Research and Development Center is BREEAM-Excellent certified. In addition to Genmab R&D Center, Plus Ultra was previously BREEAM-Excellent certified.
