(IS-2014-50) Schneider Electric Dutch Headquarters
Over the past decade, Schneider has seen “monumental growth” in their size as well as in their product line as a result of multiple strategic acquisitions culminating in one of the largest solutions provider of energy management, automation and control solutions in the world. To accommodate the expansion in The Netherlands, a new 6,000 square meter head office that would unite the multiple companies under one roof. Schneider Electric’s new Dutch head office is a thoroughly modern and excellent example of the opportunities available for saving energy in buildings. The building, with its A+ energy label, originally featured a design classified by the BREEAM-NL (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certificate as ‘Very Good’. The building then received the BREEAM-NL Excellent certificate as a result of the many measures adopted once construction had commenced.
