Koppert Biological Systems/Berkel en Rodenrijs

Koppert Biological Systems is a company in Berkel and Roderijs that creates biological solutions for crop protection. This company, which is more than 50 years old, is actually a market leader in sustainable agriculture. This project marked the start of a great collaboration with this fascinating family business.

Initially we were approached by the architect of the building where Koppert is housed. We carried out large-scale research into how the departments within the company worked in relation to each other and turned them into relationship diagrams. We looked for a better overlap between, for example, laboratory technicians and consultants. We noticed that there was, literally, a huge distance between these different types of employees. They worked in two parts of the building that had little connection with each other.

In our design, we literally built a bridge between the two professional groups. We came up with living rooms that were created in a walkway between the two buildings. An opportunity was created here for consultants and lab technicians, for example, to meet, without feeling like they were visiting the other person.

After that we helped intensively with the further process of a large-scale demolition and renovation in which we kept the Koppert employees closely involved.

Main wishes

  • Thorough research into how the workspace will be occupied
  • Create the entire interior design
  • Create more interaction between the people in the two building sections
  • Open work spaces with enough options for privacy
  • Create consultation zones in the connecting parts
  • Create an ideal work space for 150 employees

The result

A building in which employees from completely different departments can connect more easily.

In short

Familiarisation

  • We mostly want to know why new accommodation, refurbishment or transformation of the office is necessary, and what the benefits have to be for the people, the company and the customers.

Concept

  • The first image formation gives an impression of a new interior, the office design, working methods and the atmosphere.

Design

  • If you are pleasantly surprised, we will refine the design: we'll align colours and materials, and develop technical drawings and interior design.

Execution

  • We supervise construction and interior design, so that we can commission the project in a usable form. We work hard to always honour our agreements.
