We designed the electrical and mechanical installations for this project, beyond the required DO level. The design is at BREEAM-Excellent level. We employ certified BREEAM experts for this. Furthermore, the building is energy neutral and uses 100% renewable energy sources for the heating and cooling supply. This ATES system was also designed by us. We employ a BRL6000-21 certified system designer for this.
The third floor will be replaced by a sustainable roof structure, which filters natural light into the building, but at the same time keeps direct sunlight out. Insulation of the existing facades and triple solar control glazing help to prevent heating and contribute to a reduction of the cooling load and heat loss. In addition, solar panels on the roof, in combination 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.
