Sustainable office for Triodos with Ridderflex plastic parts

Sustainable office for Triodos with Ridderflex plastic parts

Currently, J.P. van Eesteren is working on the new office building of Triodos Bank in Driebergen, The Netherlands. A special project that is completely dedicated to sustainable building. The building is completely demountable: after a while it can be dismounted and built up somewhere else. Ridderflex supplies parts for this sustainable project.

Ridderflex components for curtain wall

The building has a wooden stabilizing core for three towers, that form the building. These towers have three, four and six storeys. The size of the wooden walls, that form the core of the four-storey tower, is enormous. The first are no less than 3.5 meters wide and 15.24 meters high. On the outside of the core is a steel construction with a curtain wall with large window frames, made by Octatube Netherlands. Ridderflex supplies various plastic parts that are used in this façade.

Sustainable building

The new office of Triodos meets the highest European sustainability certification: BREEAM Outstanding. All materials used for the building are registered in Madaster: a public online material library. Eventually there will be a complete material passport of the building. Characteristics such as dimensions, weight, type and material are registered for each part of the building. In this way all materials can be reused in a sustainable way in the future.
