Maastricht University awards the redevelopment of the Tapijnkazerne to Mertens Bouwbedrijf

Mertens Bouwbedrijf in Weert was chosen to execute the first phase in the redevelopment of the Tapijnkazerne in Maastricht. Following a short tender procedure, Maastricht University (UM) decided Tuesday to award the contract to Mertens Bouwbedrijf BV. The former military site on the outskirts of Maastricht will be transformed into a public park, with the existing buildings used for research and education. UM acquired ownership of all Tapijn buildings from the Province of Limburg earlier this year. With this acquisition of ownership, UM will extend the concession agreement for Brasserie Tapijn by two years, until 1 April 2021.
