At the De Arkerpoort industrial area in Nijkerk, the construction of the new office building with storage for Borghese Real Estate, Borghese Logistics and Pleijsier Bouw started in November 2017. The building is located along the A28. The development covers a total of 1,565 m² and meets the user’s desire to give the building a special appearance!
The dynamic office building has a clear and transparent appearance, partly due to the installed ceiling islands and the wooden slats on the façade. The uninterrupted lines with the overhangs captures the ‘flying spaces’ of the various floors. Due to the orientation of the building and the use of specific materials, the highest qualification within the BREEAM-NL certification is ‘outstanding’.
The building will be festively opened in mid-2018.

|Introduction||The design of Mies architectuur (Ede) is a transparent building with large overhangs. These contribute to horizontal articulation. A green roof, green façade parts, integrated wind turbines and PV panels on the roof in the building give the building a sustainable appearance. The materialisation and the freely lay-out floor plans also contribute to a high sustainability performance.
The building consists of three floors. On the ground floor, the entrance of the building is located with a number of common areas. The first floor will be used by Pleijsier Bouw and the second floor by Borghese Real Estate. It concerns a building with mainly office function in which a number of meeting rooms are situate also.
During the design phase, much attention was paid to the health and comfort of the renewed work environment. The clear structure and materialization generate, among other things, long lines of sight and a generous incidence of daylight. The choice for an open office space as a workplace concept as well as the well-considered access possibilities are important indicators for the flexibility of the building.
|Ambitions||The ambition in this new construction project is high. The aim is BREEAM-NL Outstanding based on the BRL 2014 v2.0.|
|The building is connected to a heat pump system for heat and cooling. In addition, PV panels and wind turbines are installed for the sustainable generation of electricity. The basic lighting switches on the basis of presence detection and daylight access to limit the energy consumption as much as possible. In addition, it was decided to apply a very energy-efficient lift.
Expected estimated annual consumption;
Innovative and environmentally friendly design measures
|The most important innovative and environmentally-friendly design measures of the building;
high thermal insulation of the architectural shell (Rc values 8 and 6 for roof and 4.5 for facades, high-quality triple glazing and overhangs and solar control facilities)
|Process||Through the involvement of experienced parties, who recognize the importance of all the different BREEAM-NL phases, we were able to successfully complete our ambitions. During weekly building meetings, all facets within BREEAM were extensively discussed. The starting point at the start of this project was BREEAM “Outstanding”.|
|BREEAM-NL||The ambition is to meet the criteria requirements of the following credits:
MANAGEMENT: performance assurance, building site and environment, environmental impact construction site, user manual, consultation, knowledge transfer, life cycle cost analysis
HEALTH: daylighting, view, counteracting light pollution, high frequency lighting, indoor / outdoor lighting, light control, internal air quality, volatile organic compounds, thermal comfort, temperature control, acoustics
ENERGY: energy efficiency, submetering energy consumption, energy-efficient outdoor lighting, application of sustainable energy, energy-efficient elevators, guaranteeing thermal quality building shell
TRANSPORT: alternative transport, pedestrian and cyclist safety, transport information point, supply and maneuvering
WATER: water consumption, water meter, leak detection main water connection, self-closing water supply sanitary, water recycling, irrigation systems
MATERIALS: building materials, substantiated provenance materials, robust designs, building flexibility
WASTE: waste management on the construction site, storage space for reusable waste, furnishing
COUNTRY USE & ECOLOGY: reuse of land, plant and animal present at the site, plants and animals as a co-user of the plan area, sustainable co-use of plants and animals in the long term
POLLUTION: space heating related Nox emissions, minimization of pollution runoff rainwater, minimization of light pollution, noise pollution.
|Cost||n the selection of materials, the exploitation has already been taken into account. Extra investment has been made which will (partly) be compensated by subsidies. This makes a much more sustainable building design possible against limited investment costs.|
|Tip (s) for next project||It is recommended to record the BREEAM ambition at an early stage. Not already expressing this ambition in the program phase leads to frequent changes in VO and Do designs. If the BREEAM facilities are not already taken into account from the sketch design.
A BREEAM project requires much more preparation time because of the extensive substantiation. It is advisable to take this into account when planning the design stages and to reserve sufficient time.
