Distribution centre with production facilities and loft office
Hitachi Vantara’s state-of-the-art EMEA distribution centre in Zaltbommel consists of 31,000 m² of distribution space with production facilities and loft office. It was built by Hercuton and developed by Kadans Vastgoed. Communication, efficiency and trust were the key words in this project.
Tenant Hitachi Vantara had three main spearheads for its new accommodation: Safety & Quality (process continuity), Comfort (personnel and process) and Energy Consumption (low cost and CO2 footprint). With this question Kadans, as a developing investor, approached Hercuton to jointly develop this project. As a result, Hercuton has been able to contribute its expertise from the outset and contribute towards quality and sustainability.
Total Cost of Ownership
It is a particularly sustainable project in which, during the translation of the client’s wishes, not only the realisation costs were decisive, but above all the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) was taken into account. Conscious investments were made in sustainable measures to keep operating costs as low as possible. Both Hitachi Vantara and Kadans Vastgoed are reaping the direct benefits of this.
Largest solar panel roof in the Netherlands
Hercuton has built the building according to its concrete construction system in high quality prefabricated concrete, extremely comfortable to use and practically maintenance-free. In addition, heat and cold storage takes place in combination with underfloor heating in the hall and use is made of thermally active floors. Solar cells over the entire roof surface have led to the Netherlands’ largest – non-subsidised – solar cell project on a building!
BREEAM Very Good
The properties of concrete construction played a decisive role in this new building. In particular the accumulating capacity, which makes the building with lighter installations sufficient and the possibility of multiple land use, so that 200 parking spaces could be situated on the roof. This has resulted in an efficient building with a very special appearance, environmentally responsible and a nice place to work. The building has obtained a Breeam Very Good certificate.
Annually, this new building saves no less than 1,1780,000 kg of CO2. This equals the consumption of 178,000 trees (5.9 hectares of forest). The building has a negative EPC value, which means that the building delivers more energy than it consumes. To illustrate: the energy generated is equal to the annual energy consumption of 780 households.
