PingProperties redeveloping courtyard garden at Dutch Tech Campus as a climate-adaptive meeting place
PingProperties has embarked on phase D of the development plans at Dutch Tech Campus in Zoetermeer. In this phase, the plan is being implemented to fully redevelop the courtyard garden as a natural, sustainable and safe garden in which a balanced symbiosis exists between people and nature. It will be a place where people can wind down and get together. At the same time the garden will support the biodiversity of the wider environment.
The work includes relandscaping the green spaces according to indigenous and biodiverse principles, with the addition of around 1,400 m² of low (including turf) and tall plants. All the existing trees will be retained. In addition, the entire canal pond of 1,450 m² will be renovated and made more attractive with aquatic plants. The pedestrian zones of around 5,000 m² will also be repaved, reusing existing paving bricks. More sitting areas will be created for relaxation, with outdoor benches and tables made from low-grade plastic waste. This material is recycled waste collected by municipalities and can be reused as a raw material. The outdoor lighting will also be cleaned and entirely replaced by LED lighting. The work is scheduled to be completed in the autumn.
