We are ready to grow!

Welcome at Brightlands Chemelot Campus! We are proud to introduce to you our brand new concept: Brighthouses!

Thanks to our strong positioning in the field of materials, chemistry and biomedical sciences, the campus is growing rapidly. And to provide companies with the right environment to continue to thrive, there’s always a need for new buildings. For established innovative companies and for young, new businesses too. They often start small but need scalable space in the course of time. At Brightlands Chemelot Campus this is all possible.

To provide start-ups with a supportive environment, we developed the new multi-tenant concept “Brighthouses”. We based our design on flexibility, so the buildings can be tailored to meet residents’ specific wants and requirements. The result is modular spaces offering combined lab- and workspace. Nothing in the buildings was built to last forever. Spaces can be adapted to suit changing needs, with no major renovation required. And as the resident of a multi-tenant building, you benefit from opportunities to share knowledge and make valuable connections.

The Brighthouses are unique because they were designed to be duplicated. We have plans to build this type of building, on this scale and with the same flexibility, more often on the campus. Not only is the design highly affordable, it can be built in a very short time: the first pile went into the ground in January 2018, and in December the first tenants moved in. Now the two Brighthouses, each with a floor area of 7500 m2, accommodate almost 900 people.
