Besides the characteristic flexible laboratories and offices, the building will include a publicly accessible winter garden. Biopartner 5 will be the first energy-neutral laboratory building in the Netherlands. The building will be constructed in a demountable manner, using materials that come from the demolition of the Gorlaeus high-rise building. Circular construction will be done with for example: clinkers, slate, carpeting, sewer pipes and furniture.
In addition to the sustainability considerations as mentioned above, rainwater will also be buffered on the roof and stored in the ground. On the terrace, a wadi can be found. With taking into account the animals and plants in the area by working with greenery, the building can be called nature-inclusive.
