Turn-key construction of new European headquarters
Hercuton realized the new European headquarters of Hikvision fully turn-key at the De President business park in Hoofddorp. The building is conceptually built in prefab concrete. The new building consists of two storeys and is built on a visible location of 9,526 m². The distribution centre has a surface area of 3,500 m² and the spacious, light office comprises 2,000 m².
The project was tightly planned. At the beginning of June, the first pile was driven into the ground and after seven months the building was delivered turnkey. Hercuton can offer this planning certainty because of its integral and conceptual approach. The natural properties of concrete – a durable, solid, burglar-resistant and fire-retardant construction material with a high accumulating capacity – lend themselves perfectly to this new building.
Since its founding in 2001, the Chinese company Hikvision Digital Technology (with a market value of USD 20 billion) has grown to become a global player with more than fourteen thousand employees, fourteen branches around the world, customers in more than one hundred countries and a market share of more than thirty-five percent in China. European sales & marketing, distribution and technical support are realised from the European head office in Hoofddorp. The proximity and fast connection to Schiphol make business park De President in Hoofddorp the ideal business location for Hikvision. Boag Advice and Management from Rotterdam supervised Hikvision throughout the project.
