Farrat’s Special Projects Division has been appointed to deliver a comprehensive vibration control system for the new OCC Spuikwartier development in The Hague – soon to be the largest educational and cultural complex in the Netherlands.
Due to the exceptionally high performance criteria and prestige of the project, our team will engineer and manufacture bespoke designed Hybrid Bearings and Acoustic Floating Floors to optimise the acoustic design of auditoriums dedicated to music, theater and dance.
The comprehensive plan includes the development of a new cultural hub that will house the Residentie Orkest, the Nederlands Danstheater, the Dans- en Muziekcentrum Den Haag Foundation and the Royal Conservatory.
The project will include a 1,500-seat symphonic auditorium, a 1,300-seat dance theater with orchestra pit, a chamber music hall and a large orchestra rehearsal room.
The building will also include apartments, a hotel, commercial outlets and a parking area able to accommodate 1,500 bicycles.
Expected completion: 2020.
