Factsheet Municipal offices based on circular principles (Venlo)
The project comprised the building and design of the municipal offices in accordance with the circular principles of cradle-to-cradle (C2C). This means that the raw materials used will always continue to be used at the same level, will never lose their value and will remain available for new products, and that the building offers added value. (June 2017)
The municipal offices purify outside air, generate energy and there is a closed-loop water recycling system. The municipality has used many C2C solutions, such as a green climate facade, heat and cold storage, a helophyte field for wastewater purification, solar chimney, greenhouse as green lung, triple glass and solar panels. The furniture was also procured according to circular economy principles.
