The business community in the Town’s Harbour, in a building called Videnshuset, has been expanded with an additional extension, which is now ready for occupancy.
The construction work began in April 2019 and has just been completed, a month ahead of schedule. The first tenants to move in will be Bitten & Mads Clausen’s Foundation, who will take office space on the top floor of the building. Later, Andelskassen will also move in. Fabrikant Mads Clausen’s Foundation will also have office facilities in Videnshuset.
The communal facilities are shared with the existing Videnshus, so there will be no change to the main entrance, reception, canteen, catering facilities and meeting rooms. In order to accommodate the increasing personnel, the lunchroom has been expanded and two new meeting rooms have been built. These complement the existing five meeting rooms of varying sizes in the original part of Videnshuset.
The first part of Videnshuset was inaugurated in 2013. According to Frank Gehry's master plan for the Town’s Harbour, the adjacent plot was also to be used for an office building. However, instead of building two independent buildings, it was decided to connect the two buildings on the ground floor. As a result of this, the daily operation can be optimised and the community between the tenants in the house is expanded.
Videnshuset is today inhabited by EY, Rambøll, Hansen Technologies and Bitten & Mads Clausen’s Foundation. For those interested, there are still vacant leases in Videnshuset which can be viwed by contacting real estate agent Lene Thiim Roelsen, Nordicals
