The renovation of the Neuron (formerly Laplace) building began in early September. Neuron will be renovated into a general educational building for the Eindhoven University of Technology. The building will also house the new Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI).
Total Engineer TWIN (Team V Architecture, Royal HaskoningDHV, DGMR) completed the design for the renovation this summer. Among other things, the building will have a partially raised roof with a special wooden construction. This creates a high and light atrium space on the second floor. This bright space is connected to the first floor by an opening. The additional interior design by Müller van Tol in collaboration with Team V is in its final stage.
The contractor for this project is the Laplace Transformation construction consortium, which consists of Bouwbedrijf Berghege, Heerkens van Bavel and CroonWolter& Dros | TBI. They have already been closely involved in the development of the Technical Design during the past period, and are working on the Design ready for implementation. They started work on the site in early September. This will take about a year, after which the building can be put into use from the start of the academic year 2022.
