Law firm VANEPS will get a new office building in St. Maarten. Managing partner Focco Lunsingh Scheurleer and senior partner Randolph van Eps signed an agreement to this effect with the Betonbouw Group on Friday 10 July. The new building will be at Harbour View, just like the current building. Higher up the slope, the building will offer magnificent views of Philipsburg, Great Bay and Great Salt Pond.
The building will be built on columns, so that the space underneath the first floor will be a covered parking. This optimally opens up the unique view. The use of glass emphasizes this effect, giving the new office building a modern appearance as well. The building will be equipped with high-quality facilities, such as a roof terrace accessible by elevator, a library, and several adjustable conference rooms with a maximum capacity of 40 persons in a theater setup. As a consequence, meetings such as the legal seminars VANEPS regularly offers can partly be organized in its own office from now on.
The design of the new building offers the option to rent out two offices, separately accessible from the lobby. The rent includes use of all facilities, such as the spacious parking, security, video conferencing and a receptionist.
Managing partner Focco Lunsingh Scheurleer says about this step: “Meeting the demand on the market, our team in St. Maarten is growing. This resulted, for instance, in the decision earlier this year to permanently post an extra partner, Michiel Gorsira, in St. Maarten. Additional requirements for our accommodation formed another consequence. We are glad to have found a partner in the Betonbouw Group that will deliver a turnkey building tailored to all our wishes.”
Partner Kamla Besançon, attorney with VanEps Kunneman Van Doorne in St. Maarten, “In the past four years, VANEPS has become a leading and permanent player on the St. Maarten market. The design of the new building is modern and spacious, and suits our progressive vision.”
On behalf of Betonbouw, Dirk-Huib Kleijn says: “In pleasant cooperation, VANEPS and Arcade arrived at this design in the past year, and we are proud to be able to consider a firm that sets high standards in every respect to be our client. We look forward to the continuation, when we will realize this design.”
