The Accelerator building, which comprises more than 22,000 m², provides space for office functions, but also contains laboratories.

Accelerator has flexible floor plans, and its carefully detailed communal areas and abundant natural light create a pleasant, healthy working environment. The floor-to-ceiling plant wall in the atrium is an eye-catcher.
The super-efficient use of materials, in combination with 420 solar panels on the roof, water-saving toilets, parking spaces with charging points, heat pumps, and an aquiver (heat storage), has ensured that the building has been certified BREEAM Excellent.

ready for use  

Accelerator was completed in early April of 2022. In the coming period, the outdoor space will be constructed and the tenants will move into the offices and laboratories. One of Accelerator's most attractive details belongs to the Genmab floors: a spiral staircase made of thin, white-coated sheet steel.
