EromesMarko’s headquarters has undergone a real transformation. The company, which creates innovative educational environments, has three production locations in the Netherlands. The factory in Wijchen, located next to the main office, was originally built in 1967. After the building had already been extended multiple times throughout the years, it now required a full renovation. Architect Martijn de Waal (DUAL architects) designed a factory building in which sustainability is a key factor – both inside and out.
EromesMarko very much believes in the concept of circularity, a system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. This Corporate Social Responsibility is strongly reflected in the building. Solar energy is used, just as LED lighting with daylight control, and all generated heat is reused.
Smart use of factory and office spaces
Moreover, the building was set up in a flexible and very smart way. After all, a building with spaces that are hardly being used is not very sustainable. The renovation makes the floor area grow with only 25% to 17,000 square metres, but the total volume of the building grows from 54,000 to 119,000 cubic metres.
