GKB | Most sustainable industrial site
GKB-group’s objective was to build the most sustainable site in the Netherlands. We were able to make a significant contribution to this project by incorporating the building investment under the Energy Investment Allowance Scheme (EIA), the Environment Investment Allowance Scheme (MIA) and the Renewable Energy Production Incentive Scheme (SFE).
In a wonderful collaboration with a large number of professionals, GKB has realized the most sustainable industrial building in the Netherlands. The building serves for its Steelwork and Machines division. So, what does that mean?
- Firstly, a building that meets BREEAM Outstanding certification
- The building is energy neutral
- Water is optimally reused
- And the building has the least possible negative impact on the environment
The biggest challenge within this business case was aligning the subsidy with the strict BREEAM requirements and technical feasibility, without losing sight of subsidy objectives. It is here where we as Plus Projects can make a difference. The end result? GKB was the first to obtain the Breeam Outstanding design certificate for commercial buildings! Also according to the latest BREEAM standard (2014).
