Accelerator is starting to take its shape, the 11th floor is almost there! The construction is progressing rapidly as part of the facade is already in place and the various floors are becoming more and more visible. The atrium as the heart of the building is showing how much light comes through already. Right now, the large construction crane is still standing in the middle of the atrium. In April it will be a year ago since we started building at Utrecht Science Park.

Accelerator is a new multi-tenant building for Life Sciences on Utrecht Science Park. In addition to accommodating large biotechnology companies, Accelerator offers space to start-ups and scale-ups that want to accelerate their development. The design is based on the vision of listed biotechnology companies Genmab and Merus: improving lives of patients by developing innovative therapies for cancer treatment, partly by entering into valuable collaborations. Accelerator endorses this ambition by creating a unique hub within the innovation ecosystem. The building offers an auditorium, various ‘meet & greet’ facilities and extensive restaurant, providing many opportunities for meetings.

Accelerator offers Utrecht Science Park a welcome addition to accommodate more innovative companies in the Life Sciences sector. The building will be developed aiming for high sustainability requirements: BREEAM Excellent.
