Since 1973, the Government Buildings Service rented some 6,000 m2 in a property owned by the European Patent Office. As part of the government's The Hague Masterplan, the occupier will move to The Hague and therefore the Government Buildings Agency terminated the rental agreement. In co-operation with the Patent Office, Redept ensured that the tenant could leave the property without significant reinstatement costs and that extra time was granted for the removal of some delicate stained glass windows.
