FOSS invests in new Innovation Centre
The new FOSS Innovation Centre in Hilleroed, Denmark was officially opened by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik on the 3rd of April.
FOSS has invested more than 160 million Danish kr in new buildings and employees in 2012. FOSS achieved in 2012 the best result ever with a growth of 9 %.
With space for more than 300 employees and a complete openness in the building, FOSS wants to inspire to new standards for innovation in a highly flexible and cross-functional collaborative environment. In the 12,000 m2 large, diamond shaped building everyone works in open space from the product developer to the CEO, on floors built around a large atrium in the centre of the building.
“The new Innovation Centre is a cornerstone in our growth strategy. We want to inspire to new standards of innovative behaviour created in an open, flexible and multi-purpose environment,” said Torben Ladegaard, CEO FOSS.
The building is designed by Sahl Architects A/S in cooperation with Viborg Ingeniørerne A/S, which also had the full responsibility for the construction of the building. The interior design company, Formsprog, has been responsible for the building interior and the colour design. FOSS Innovation Centre is placed on Foss Allé 1 on a 10 hectare ground with a view to Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, situated close to the other FOSS buildings in Hilleroed.
