The faculties and lecturers at the UG have a clear wish: to be able to hold more examinations, written or digital, during examination weeks. The Aletta Jacobs Hall at Zernike Campus currently has insufficient capacity. So the University of Groningen has drawn up a plan to expand it with more lecture and examination halls. An additional foyer/waiting area, a study environment and more bicycle sheds are included in the plans. The project will be realized by BAM Construction and Engineering.
The building will be linked to a geothermal energy storage system (WKO; Warmte Koude Opslag) for sustainable heating and cooling. The project also includes more than 500 solar panels on the roof of the complex and climate control will be improved in the foyer. Construction is expected to start in late 2018 and be completed by early academic year 2020-2021.
