The skyline of Utrecht will have another eye-cather: office building Central Park. Commissioned by building combination Westflank Noord – a cooperation of VolkerWessels construction companies Wessels Zeist and Wessels Rijssen – Voortman Steel Construction supplies the steel structure of this extraordinary building. The delivery is scheduled for 2022.
Unique feature is the two-story high park, which divides the building into two at a height of 45 metres. The building will have 28,000 square metres office space, 500 square meters hospitality space and more than 110 apartments. Underneath it, a five-story parking garage will be realised. At the construction of Central Park, the project team strives for a BREEAM Excellent label, which means that the office building meets all requirements in the field of sustainability.
The ground level of Central Park fits seamlessly with the City Plateau or Forum, the elevated pedestrian area which connects Utrecht Central Station, the city centre and the Central Business District. The office building is located between the City office and a residential tower, called De SYP. The extremely small construction site in the heart of Utrecht requires the necessary flexibility from our assembly team. Due to the nearby train tracks and tram and bus lanes, it is only possible to work on the connection to the City Plateau at night, when the traffic is stopped. Voortman Steel Construction supplies and mounts the steel for the underground parking garage, the office building and the connection to the City Plateau, altogether 1,000 tonnes. We also supply and mount the steel-sheet concrete flooring.
