The Bezuidenhoutseweg 30 (B30) public-private partnership (PPP) in The Hague, the Netherlands, has reached financial close. Mott MacDonald has been retained as lender’s technical advisor on the project and will provide construction and operational monitoring services.
The project is being undertaken by the Facilicom PPS B30 B.V. consortium consisting of Breijer Bouw en Installatie BV, Facilicom Bedrijfsdiensten BV, Facilicom Solutions BV and Kaan Architecten. Project financing is being provided by NIBC Bank N.V.
A National Heritage site, the building will be converted into the Dutch government’s premier new knowledge centre, serving as the joint premises for the Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis, the Institute for Social Research, the Environmental Assessment Agency, the Data Protection Authority and the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure. The inclusion of a sixth governmental department is also being considered.
Mott MacDonald’s project director Joost van Loon said: “Our global knowledge and experience in guiding, advising and supporting PPP projects helped this project reach a successful financial close. Mott MacDonald has a strong presence in The Hague, as we are also providing technical advice to lenders on the new Supreme Court building, which is due to be handed over next year.”
The renovated building is due to be completed in 2016.
