All the employees can decide for themselves at the sit-stand desks the postures they wish to adopt while working. For meetings and teamwork there are sufficient separate spaces in different sizes available. Visitors to the BGV are warmly welcomed at the large attractive reception counter on the ground floor. A new company restaurant at which employees can dine together at lunchtime has an attractive outdoor area. This together with the large hall, which before the conversion work featured an escalator that led up to the upper floors, is set to become an attractive event area for internal as well as external cultural events.
In 2013, the main building was awarded a prize for exemplary construction. The jury based its decision on a number of criteria, including the external design, size and proportions of the building, internal spatial formation, allocation of rooms and functionality, appropriateness of the means and materials, structural integrity, interposition and the handling of the urban context and the environment.
