PingProperties drives first pile for Lamboo Medical and Siemens at Dutch Tech Campus
PingProperties is expanding Dutch Tech Campus in Zoetermeer, with a new development of around 21,000 m² for Lamboo Medical (approx. 15,500 m²) and Siemens (approx. 5,500 m²). Building work began today in festive fashion, under the keen eye of interested individuals. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2022.
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 ambition is to achieve a BREEAM Very Good In Use certificate. 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 the site has been recycled to create a rubble bed which will then be built on. The facilities in the building, including solar panels, energy storage, charging infrastructure and energy monitoring, will help to achieve the energy transition and energy objectives. It is also Siemens’ ambition to implement a Smart Grid solution on the site, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions even further.
Developments on Dutch Tech Campus
To achieve Dutch Tech Campus’s growth ambitions, investments are being made in development plans. In phase A, 6,000 m² of office space was renovated and made sustainable to achieve energy label A+ for Siemens Mobility and Yunex Traffic, and delivered in September 2021. Phase B involved adding exceptionally sustainable, gas-free commercial space for Topcon which was delivered in November 2021. Now Phase C is getting underway: the new development of 21,000 m² for Lamboo Medical and Siemens.
Joost Lamboo, Board of Directors of Lamboo Medical:
‘The new gas-free accommodation is perfectly in keeping with our sustainability ambition to be a CO₂-neutral producer by 2030’.
Joanne Meyboom, managing director of Siemens Smart Infrastructure, adds:
‘The new building offers Siemens not only the ability to receive our customers in a contemporary and professional way, but also accommodation that ties in with the European Commission’s sustainability objectives under the name Fit-for-55’.
