The Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) has signed a lease with Deka Immobilien Investment GmbH for 1,700 m² of office space. The accreditation institution will be renting the 3rd and 4th floors of the Daalse Kwint, located at Daalseplein 1-102 in Utrecht. The lease will begin on 1 October 2015.
The Daalse Kwint office building lies in the district around Utrecht's railway station, with about 12,365 m² of office space. The immediate area accommodates government agencies, businesses and financial services. Thanks to the renovation of the building by Deka Immobilien Investment GmbH, it now meets the requirements for EU Energy Label A and the BREEAM Very Good rating.
The RvA needed an office environment that offered more space for sharing workplaces and knowledge. According to Siebe de Boo, Director Agency at CBRE, “Based on these criteria, we conducted a ‘Stay or Go’ investigation. It showed that the current office building, where employees work on different floors, does not optimally meet the needs of the RvA. After a market orientation study, the Daalse Kwint was selected as the ideal alternative. The most important factors in the RvA's choice of new office space were the placement of the entire organization on one floor, the level of completion and the appearance of the building.”
CBRE acted on behalf of the RvA as tenant during the leasing process and will also supervise the design of the new office. The Daalse Kwint is managed by DTZ Zadelhoff Property Management B.V.
