Global coating supplier Hempel A/S announced that it had officially opened its new campus last month via emailed press release. The new Hempel Campus will serve as the company’s international headquarters for the Hempel Group.

“We are very excited to move into our Hempel Campus, which is a modern, international workplace and architecturally attractive,” said Pernille Fritz Vilhelmsen, Hempel Chief People & Culture Officer. “It is based on our vision of how we want to work together in teams and cross- functionally. Our new facilities reflect our culture and give us the perfect work environment enabling us to deliver on our ambitious strategy and growth targets.”

The new research and development facility plans to serve as a hub for international scientists and contribute to accelerating and strengthening Hempel’s development of innovative solutions for the future. The new campus is also part of a key element for its new Double Impact strategy.

Global coating supplier Hempel A/S announced that it had officially opened its new campus last month via emailed press release. 

Designed with the idea of stirring a new color into the center of a can of paint in mind, the campus features a spiral vertex and boasts a unique architectural approach that claims to link Hempel’s identity, history and physical environment.

The new office building design also focuses on sustainability and plans to be DGNB certified (German environmental label for sustainable architecture). Solar panels have been installed on the roof and more will follow later this year and in 2022. Combined, they are expected to produce 85,000 kWh of electricity per year.

“When we began the work on Hempel Campus, we decided to build on this existing concept. The spiral motion still lies at the core of the Campus design, running from the visitors’ hallway, through the atrium, and reaching its fullest expression in the five-story spiral staircase in our new office building. This also reflects the shape and flow of the Hempel logo,” said Vilhelmsen. “We look forward to welcoming customers, partners and stakeholders to Hempel Campus once the world opens up more.”

The new campus is located just north of Copenhagen, Denmark, and is the daily workplace for over 350 Hempel employees. Inside the campus consists of offices, meeting rooms, laboratories and test facilities. The campus was designed in 2011 by Årstidernes Arkitekter, now Sweco Architects, with construction launching in 2017. An original office building and test facility is still located on the campus but has plans to receive modern renovations later this year.

The entire campus is expected to reach completion by next year.
