We designed the electrical and mechanical installations for this project, beyond the requested DO level. The design is at the BREEAM Excellent level. For this, we employ certified BREEAM experts. Furthermore, the building is energy-neutral and uses 100% renewable energy sources for the heat and cold supply. This heat and cold system was also designed by us. We employ a BRL6000-21 certified system designer for this.
The third floor is replaced by a sustainable roof structure, which filters natural light into the building while keeping direct sunlight out. Insulation of the existing facades and triple solar control glazing help prevent warming and help reduce cooling loads and heat loss. In addition, solar panels on the roof, combined with energy storage in the ground, ensure that all building-related energy (including heat and cold generation) is generated sustainably and locally. Furthermore, materials are reused as much as possible and any new materials have a responsible (circular) origin.
