On 23 December PingProperties delivered a new building of around 21,000 m² for Lamboo Medical (approx. 15,500 m²) and Siemens (approx. 5,500 m²) at Dutch Tech Campus in Zoetermeer. Delivery was formally signed, in the presence of all the parties involved.
The new building is exceptionally sustainable, gas-free and with underfloor heating throughout to give an excellent working climate in the offices and commercial spaces. The sustainability theme was already the focus of attention during the preparatory work; the demolition waste from the former Siemens building that had stood on this site has been recycled to create a rubble bed on which the new building now stands. In addition, the building’s facilities, including solar panels, energy storage, charging infrastructure and energy monitoring have been developed to achieve stringent energy objectives. The building has been constructed in accordance with BREEAM Very Good in Use and complies with the standards set by the EU in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). It is also Siemens’ ambition to implement a Smart Grid solution on the site, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions even further.
‘We are proud to bring new and current tenants together at Dutch Tech Campus in this state-of-the-art development’. Nick van Vliet – (Re)Development Manager PingProperties
