Hempel opens its new Campus


Leading coatings company Hempel opened its new Campus, which features a newly constructed office building and a state-of-the art R&D facility.

Hempel Campus is the 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,” he added.

According to Hempel, the new R&D facility will be a hub for international scientists and contribute to accelerating and strengthening its development of innovative solutions for the future. This is a key element of its new Double Impact strategy, the company added in a statement.

Unique Hempel design

With the design of the headquarters building in 2011, a strong link between Hempel’s identity, history and physical environment was established. It was inspired by the action of stirring a new colour into the centre of a can of paint, forming a pattern known as a spiral vertex.

“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 storey spiral staircase in our new office building. This also reflects the shape and flow of the Hempel logo,” said Fritz Vilhelmsen. “We look forward to welcoming customers, partners and stakeholders to Hempel Campus once the world opens up more.”

The new office building has been designed with a focus on sustainability and will be DGNB certified (Ger-man 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.

The new Hempel Campus consists of offices, meeting rooms, laboratories and test facilities, equivalent to more than 26,000 sq m or over three and a half football pitches of space.

Located just north of Copenhagen, Denmark, Hempel Campus is the daily workplace to over 350 Hempel employees.

Construction of the new Campus began in 2017 and also includes an existing office building and test facility.

Both are scheduled for modernisation and rebuilding during 2021. The entire Hempel Campus is expected to be finished in 2022 and has been designed by Årstidernes Arkitekter, now Sweco Architects.
