A beacon within sustainable construction and a gathering place for growth, development and innovation
Innovest is a beacon within sustainable initiatives and is certified in accordance with DGNB-DK.
The vision for Innovest was to create a meeting place for both the established business community and entrepreneurs, both of whom can be inspired to create growth and ordinary business development. Here, a knowledge bank is created, where knowledge and innovation become available, just as construction must be permeated by product innovation, technology and method development. Therefore, Innovest is also the center of a number of vocational educations in the area.

Inspiration from Skjern Å
Precisely the combination between the established business community and the students has been in focus in our approach to construction. The semi-circular building – inspired by Skjerns Å’s curved course – surrounds an inner equipment yard in the center, while on the floors of the building, areas are distributed for business, teaching rooms, meeting rooms and a larger auditorium.
The circular shape provides visual views across areas and floors and thus helps to support the cohesion between the users of the house. Architecturally, Innovest is experienced as a dynamic, completed unit. Yet it can be extended to infinity like pearls on a string. Thereby, the buildings will remain a harmonious unity – regardless of expansion – and the opportunity for growth, development and innovation will be able to continue in Western Jutland.
