Successful Construction Day at Tapijn
On Saturday 15 June the construction site of the former Tapijn barracks was open for visitors. During the joint annual Construction and Architecture Day everyone was welcome to take a look behind the scenes. Employees of the contractor, the university and the Municipality of Maastricht gave visitors a tour around the construction site. Alderman Vivianne Heijnen officially opened the day on behalf of the Municipality of Maastricht.
With ‘learning’ as their connecting theme, Maastricht University, the Municipality of Maastricht and the Province of Limburg are working together to revive the former Tapijnkazerne. In the coming years the area will be converted into a public park, with buildings intended for education, research and multifunctional spaces and catering facilities. Tapijn will become a place where students, companies and city residents can meet.
