It's been a year since you joined Kadans Science Partner. Time has flown by, and you've accumulated a wealth of experiences. You proudly share your journey as Project Manager, highlighting your contributions to innovative building projects. A quick glimpse of some photos conveys your pride and happiness in making the switch. At Kadans, you relish the freedom and space for innovative ideas. Your team, both in the Netherlands—where our headquarters is—and in Spain, Madrid, feels like one big family united by a common goal: advancing Kadans.
Could you be our new team member in Spain, Madrid? We're searching for someone who can lead our most challenging projects from inception to completion.
Innovate with us.
In 2024, the former Clesa factory in the Fuencarral district of Madrid will undergo a remarkable transformation into a science-focused center, with an investment exceeding 30 million euros. Previously abandoned since 2011, this iconic dairy plant will receive a new lease on life through a collaborative effort between the Madrid City Council and Kadans Science Partner. The municipal entity owns the property, while the Dutch company will commit approximately 30 million euros to its revitalization, following the Val-Verde project, which clinched victory in the Reinventing Cities 2021 competition, supported by the C40 network of cities. This competition recognizes sustainable ideas for rejuvenating neglected environments.
Val-Verde envisions a fresh hub for knowledge exchange and generation, boasting over 10,500 square meters dedicated to medical and biotechnology research. It will also house a conference center accommodating more than 500 attendees, a business incubator, and a versatile coworking space designed to attract scientific talent. Furthermore, a cultural center spanning over 1,000 square meters is part of the plan.
Pioneering sustainable urban development, Val-Verde will incorporate innovative solutions for energy and water use, carbon footprint reduction, waste management, and urban environmental impact.
Importantly, this center will be self-sustaining, not reliant on public funds.
What is your working day like?
It is Monday morning, and you are on your way to a meeting on location. You drive onto the site and see the beautiful building you have been involved with from the very beginning. You have been working on this project for six months and today the rooms are being delivered where the first tenants will soon be welcomed. You are impressed with the final result and walk around the building with a sense of pride. Because you have been involved from the very beginning, this feels like the crowning glory of your work. On the way to a new appointment, you share your experiences with your colleagues, because as a team you have achieved this feat together. You will soon be toasting this at the opening of the building, but for now you must move on to a new appointment.
What else will your job entail?
As a Project Manager, you are one of the most important links in our company. You supervise and manage all aspects of the project management of our portfolio. This consists of a mix of laboratory, office, and private site infrastructure. You will ensure that our properties are designed in accordance with contractual and market requirements, listening to the client and responding to the technical needs of our tenants. As a Project Manager, you will manage contractors, monitor the budget, and carry out internal reporting. You also manage the technical upgrades and modifications.
What are you aiming for?
For you, the customer is the most important. You ensure that our tenants can work with pleasure in the properties in our portfolio. You think along with them at the start of the project and feel responsible for leading this project to a successful conclusion. As Project Manager, you make an important contribution to the growth objective by realising housing. From the initiation phase up to and including the delivery and aftercare.
