Blaak16 in Rotterdam first building in The Netherlands with a WELL Gold Certificate

23-11, 2018

In November 2018, Blaak16 received a WELL Gold certificate. Blaak16 is the first building in The Netherlands receiving the WELL certificate. After already being awarded with a BREEAM Excellent (four stars) and the A+++ EPC label earlier this year this is the third confirmation of the strong sustainable characteristics of this completely re-developed office building.

The 14,500 m² multi-tenant building is equipped with state of the art technology ensuring high levels of comfort and sustainability. The most important eco-friendly aspects comprise the use of solar panels, the heat and cold storage installation (WKO), sustainable use of materials and incentives to use the public transport as a result of its close proximity to the Blaak station. Upon completion, the Blaak 16 office building has proven to be successful. Within one year from completion, the occupancy rate reached 100%. Key words for this high-end office building are comfort, flexibility and openness. Furthermore, the building is equipped with shared meeting rooms on the top floor, combined with a panoramic roof terrace that provides stunning 360 degree views on the skyline of Rotterdam.

WELL is the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally. The WELL rating system follows performance-based criteria that measure, monitor and certify parts of the built environment that have an innate impact on wellbeing and health of humans. Its aim is to help prevent chronic diseases by using the built environment through the improvement of nutrition, mood, fitness, sleep patterns and performance of its occupants.

The building was acquired by Blue Horizon Investors in March 2018. Equity Estate performs both the asset and company management for this building as the local partner of Blue Horizon Investors in The Netherlands.
