The new Logic II centre built by logistics company Dok Vast in Tilburg received ‘Outstanding’ certification with the highest score of 91.17% out of the 284 BREEAM certified projects in the Netherlands. Knauf Insulation’s Dutch distribution partner HANKO Handelmaatschappij BV supplied the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) insulation for the centre.
“Knauf Insulation helped us a lot with documents like the declarations of performance, CE and non-asbestos certifications which were important to win the deal,” said Hans van Gastel, HANKO’s Insulation Manager.Meanwhile, HANKO supplied 22,000 metres of piping insulation from Knauf Insulation to Schipol International Airport in Amsterdam. The part-renovation project involved the refurbishment of an existing 43,000m2 business zone of the airport, known as The Base, which includes offices, restaurants and shops.
Knauf Insulation products were chosen because they met demanding BREEAM certification standards. Another key Dutch project in 2014 was the installation of Knauf Insulation products in the LEED Platinum-rated Fugro Technocenter. Offering warehouses, workshops, laboratories and offices all fitted out to the highest sustainable standards, Knauf Insulation provided thermal insulation piping from its HPS 035 AluR pipe range. Sustainability has become a key driver of construction in the Netherlands. By 2020, for example, all new buildings must be energy neutral.
