Logistics automation specialist Vanderlande has announced the commencement of construction of new state-of-the-art office facilities at its campus in Veghel, in the Netherlands.
The new 13,400 square metre office building is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2021, and will span six floors and 800 workstations.
It will also feature a 400-seat restaurant, gym and outdoor 'boot camp' area.
“Our new building has been designed to promote teamwork, and to ensure that our Veghel campus is a place where we can continuously work with a customer focus, learn from one another and innovate,” commented Herman Molenaar," Vanderlande's chief financial officer.
“This inspirational office space will positively contribute to employee satisfaction and help our people to excel.”
The new building will seek to achieve 'outstanding' certification from BREEAM, with Vanderlande committed to 'energy-neutral' construction, which it said can 'create a healthy working environment for its employees and achieve significant energy savings'.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, CFO Molenaar was joined by the Mayor of the city of Meierijstad, Kees van Rooij and construction partner Van de Ven to mark the occasion.
