BAM appointed to deliver Océ headquarters in Venlo
Venlo, the Netherlands, 15 November 2017 – High-tech printing company Océ has appointed BAM Bouw en Techniek to deliver its new headquarters in Venlo, situated in the southeastern part of the Netherlands.
The new Océ headquarters in Venlo are located near the current offices and will provide approximately 15,500 m2 of floor space – mainly workspace and visitor centre –, accommodating 550 employees.
The architectural design of Broekbakema (Rotterdam) is based on green, public spaces within the building to connect employees and visitors of the Océ headquarters. These ‘Green Plazas’ are designed as courtyards and each plaza is connected to the office wings and to the other plazas. Together, they are the central meeting point and connect all departments within the new headquarters. Every ‘Green Plaza’ is positioned differently, but is always visually linked to the surrounding landscape.

Océ’s mission is to accelerate new digital print technologies and transform them into local printing products and services for blue-chip multinationals around the globe and creative studios around the corner.
