On July 6, the board of Naktuinbouw (the Netherlands Inspection Service for Horticulture) drew up the plans to build a new laboratory behind the main building at Sotaweg 22 in Roelofarendsveen. After this first important step, the procedure for European tendering was started. The actual construction will begin in spring 2019.
Laboratory and office
Purchase of municipal land
The municipality of Kaag & Braassem decided to sell off the 'event area' that is located diagonally behind the main building of Naktuinbouw. The municipality will also let a parcel of about 1.5 hectares on the Sotaweg to Naktuinbouw.
Naktuinbouw is planning to use the plot on Sotaweg 60A to store soil. The excavated soil behind the main building is valuable for Naktuinbouw and is therefore temporarily stored at this location. Naktuinbouw will rent the plot for the next three years, with the possibility of a three-year extension.
The current 'event area' will serve as storage location during construction in 2019 and will be used for the supply of building materials. After construction, it will have a logistical function for the supply and removal of materials to Naktuinbouw and can serve as a parking facility as well.
