The Kopgebouw provides a connection between companies and students. The fourth and fifth floors will house the Dordrecht Academy. A bridge will also be found here that will connect the Kopgebouw and the Duurzaamheidsfabriek. The remaining floors will accommodate companies that fit the campus profile of the Leerpark, and have a link to technology and innovation. This combination makes the Kopgebouw a place where education and business find and strengthen each other.



The building offers a high degree of flexibility. The Kopgebouw will have a central atrium and on the fourth floor a connection to the Sustainability Factory. The top two floors are intended for higher education, the remaining floors are available for innovative companies and startups in the field of sustainability, energy, new market industry and innovative maritime solutions. The atrium provides space for lunch, flex working, meeting and celebrating successes. Meeting facilities are also available.

Approximately 264 bicycle spaces are available at the Kopgebouw, 10 of which have a charging point for electric bicycles. There are also 88 parking spaces made available to tenants of the Kopgebouw.

Due to the striking facade with draped theatre fabric, the Kopgebouw will be a landmark at the entrance of the Leerpark, easily visible from the train, car and by bike.

Located close to the geographical heart of Dordrecht, the Leerpark is a renewed urban district in the making. This is a district where innovation and sustainability are central. The Leerpark is home to a fire station, a sports complex and various training companies, but also offers space for people who want to live among the greenery. The Leerpark stimulates collaborations and encounters and describes itself as a ‘Weconomy’. Various activities bring residents, entrepreneurs and students closer together.

The Leerpark is developing rapidly. The Kopgebouw, actually located at the head of the Leerpark, becomes the landmark for an innovative place in Dordrecht. The building brings higher education back to the city.

The Leerpark, and with it the Kopgebouw, is located close to the N3, and is therefore easily accessible by car as well as by public transport, with a bus station located in the park.
