About the project

Secoya office park is located in the business district of Papendorp, Utrecht, The Netherlands. It is a ‘living building’ complex and offers revolutionary office spaces that support wellbeing, sustainability and connectivity.

Across five buildings, this modern business space brings new ways of working to companies in the Utrecht area. Pensioenfonds Metaal & Techniek chose the Park4All solution, an innovation co-created between Park4All B.V. and Royal HaskoningDHV, to develop four parking decks and two landscape stairways to meet the parking needs of the Secoya Campus.

The challenges

The Secoya office park wanted to improve parking facilities while creating a natural parking environment. This transformation needed to be in line with the office park’s sustainability and circularity objectives – and take them a step closer to realising their vision of becoming the working space of the future. Rijnboutt Architects and a project team led by Park4All B.V. and with strong involvement of Royal HaskoningDHV were responsible for designing and implementing the solution that would meet this need.

The solution

Park4All delivered 1,000 parking spaces spread over four garages to meet the needs of the Secoya office park. The parking solution was engineered by Royal HaskoningDHV, and consists of flexible, lightweight modular grids that can be transported and constructed and dismantled easily.

Royal HaskoningDHV was involved with disciplines of construction, geotechnics and fire safety. The project was realised in close co-operation with Van Leeuwen GWW engineering contractor, Royal HaskoningDHV, Projectbureau Rodewijk, Alewijnse Retail, Skidata and Alljobs parking solutions.

The results

All four garages were designed and constructed within a year – and met the demands of the Secoya office park’s sustainability and circularity objectives, through an innovative solution that helped feature them as a working space of the future.
