Phase 3

Benefits for tenants

Energy saving measures:

  • Using ground water for cooling and heating the building, resulting in reduced electricity consumption
  • Heating plant with modulating burners, resulting in reduced gas consumption
  • Ventilation machines with frequency converters – electricity power consumption only on demand (presence detectors in meeting rooms)
  • Highly-efficient heat recovery systems in all air-handling units
  • Automatic climate control systems for all rooms and floors
  • Energy saving due to use of induction units (silent systems) – no electricity is needed and maintenance costs are reduced
  • A modern and efficient building management system (BMS), which monitors and reduces power consumption
  • Night cooling via a ventilation system and by using the energy stored in the concrete structure
  • Modern glass facade of the building with integrated solar protection, reducing potential transmission losses
  • The garage, corridors and lift lobbies have automatic switches for lighting, which are activated by movement (presence detectors) and ambient brightness. The light circuits can be overridden by the BMS using a time schedule.
  • The lights in the toilets are activated by presence detectors
  • The free-standing automatic dimmed lamps in the office areas use less electricity and require less cooling
  • Using solar control glass with a low “g-Value of 0.27 and 0.34”, reduces the running costs, while maximizing daylight (high light transmission value)
  • Using motorized outside shading devices on the west façade, to reduce solar induction
  • The shades are operated automatically, depending on the temperature and the position of the sun. It is possible to manually adjust the shades in each room.
  • Optimal ratio for transparent and non-transparent elements on the façade
  • All working places have natural light, reducing electricity consumption
  • LEED and DNGB - Gold certifications

Tenants comfort and flexibility:

  • Landmark architectural design - highly visible from all directions
  • Integrated in a successful business park
  • Cafe at the entrance
  • High standard of electrical and mechanical installations
  • Highly flexible design options are available to the tenant. All potential room arrangements and combinations of open space/single offices have been foreseen in the HVAC and electrical installations
  • The central staircase and compact design optimise available space utilization and minimise commuting distance within in the building
  • Flexibility of cabling options due to the raised floor
  • Ventilation systems have high maximum supply and exhaust volumes
  • The main electrical power supply is via the building’s own 10 KV-voltage station, which is supported by two power cables, ensuring continuous power supply in the event of damage to one cable.
  • Simultaneous heating and cooling settings are possible
  • Earthquake analysis by Eurocode, to ensure high safety standards
  • Parking space with comfortable access
  • Reduced air circulation velocity in the office spaces
  • A diesel generator provides back-up power for life and safety equipment
  • The entire building is fire-protected by an automatic sprinkler system
  • Desks are supported by floor boxes, which can be installed every 60/60 cm
  • Video surveillance of the building’s exterior, entrances and garage by the facility manager
  • Electronic access control for the building and the tenants area
