Expansion of Aletta Jacobshal in photos

08 July 2019

The capacity of the Aletta Jacobshal, the exam hall, will be doubled. Contractor BAM started construction work at the end of 2018. The foundation is ready, part of the steel structure is standing and (prefab) concrete for floors and lecture halls has been placed. Time for an update on the construction work, which is expected to be completed mid-2020.

A new wing and a sustainable building

The extension to the Aletta Jacobshal is necessary to meet the increasing demand for (digital) examination facilities and lecture halls. In addition to lecture and examination rooms, the new wing will also have an extra foyer/reception area, study facilities and more bicycle racks. The building will also become more sustainable thanks to the installation of a geothermal energy system and more than 500 solar panels on the roof.
