Sod-turning ceremony for Copenhagen Plant Science Centre I
On Friday the 17th January, a sod-turning ceremony was held to mark the start of work on the Plant Science Centre I.
Denmark is now one step closer to a world-leading plant research facility, Copenhagen Plant Science Centre. On Friday the 17th January, a sod-turning ceremony was held to mark the start of work on the Plant Science Centre I.
The ground was broken by Rector Ralf Hemmingsen, director of the Danish Building and Property Agency Carsten Jarlov, Mayor of Frederiksberg Jørgen Glenthøj, Head of Department Svend Christensen and partner in Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects Henrik Schmidt.
Copenhagen Plant Science Centre will provide optimal conditions for plant research and education by creating a cross-disciplinary scientific environment that bridges plant scientists and advance research from bench to field. The scientists at CPSC conduct pioneering research that both creates knowledge about basic biological, chemical and physical processes and brings into play academic knowledge in conventional and new innovative biological production systems.
Copenhagen Plant Science Centre is constructed on behalf of the Danish Building and Property Agency. The Centre is designed by Danish Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects, in a consortium with Jacobs Engineering Group, Kirstine Jensen Architects ApS and Emendo. Construction work is made by C.C. Brun Entreprise A/S.
