Besides the characteristic flexible laboratories and offices, the building includes a publicly accessible winter garden. Biopartner 5 is the first energy-neutral laboratory building in the Netherlands. The building is constructed in a demountable manner, using materials that come from the demolition of the Gorlaeus high-rise building. Circular construction was completed with for example: clinkers, slate, carpeting, sewer pipes and furniture.
In addition to the sustainability considerations as mentioned above, rainwater is buffered on the roof and from there 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 is nature-inclusive.
