From a lineair to a circular system with Recover E Royal HaskoningDHV initiated some Circular Economy initiatives using new business models on: ICT equipment (Recover E), textiles and chemicals leasing. A circular system maximizes the reusability and minimizes the value destruction of products and raw materials. It respects ecological, social and economic conditions. The Recover E Program of Royal HaskoningDHV and Siso allows IT users to contribute to this circular economy. The idea is that (business) ‘consumers’ can control how their ICT equipment is handled. By using a mode, participants in the E Recover Program can negotiate with the supplier of their ICT hardware. It is all about the optimum of ‘(Re) design’, ‘Re-use’ and ‘recycling’ of ICT products.

1. Thinking in cycles and networks of stakeholders and resources In order to achieve sustainable buildings and environments, connecting stakeholders is crucial. Closing cycles and networks result in win-wins and make business cases feasible. We experience that “thinking in networks” is a prequisite to realise sustainable solutions. Traditionally one would start with the building, but we start with the people who will use the building. We ask ourselves: how can they benefit, now and in the future? We discuss with all involved stakeholders on how they work and what

is important for them. And only then we start making a translation to what the building, the learning environment, should be. It is about what kind of building an organisation needs in terms of quality and about its impact in technical and financial terms. Too often and too much we are planning and building for the investment phase. But considering the total life cycle of buildings is essential to achieve sustainable and future-proof solutions.

Production and consumption phases should be connected in such a way that used materials once again become production material. This reduces the scarcity of resources and links investment and operational phases.

2. Defining ambitions and searching for added value We need to think in added value and effective solutions with positive outcomes, rather than just being efficient by minimising negative impacts. It aspires to make buildings and industry ‘good’ for the environment and society and ensures that we use the buildings value for the end user and for the organization as a starting point. We discovered that these beneficial solutions actually generate a positive financial result, because they deliver the qualities, people asked for. A sustainable hospital, for example, will have not only

a more sustainable energy concept but also a so-called healing environment in which patients arguably heal faster. In addition to the air quality, the use of light, color and views are key factors. As a result there’s is not only a win for the energy bill of the hospitals real estate department but also for the medical processes. In order to achieve maximum added value it is important to define ambitions and set up a compelling vision. Ambitions that are embedded in the vision of an organisation will be easier to implement and also clarify which actions are needed to implement the solutions.

3. Thinking in business cases and total costs of ownership A successful transition to a sustainable organization can only take place when this can be justified financially and socially. It is necessary to introduce sustainability in location and real estate development at an early stage and to make costs and benefits visible to all parties involved. The creation of a business case supports the actual decision making process about the actual measurements and provides an insight into the necessary investments and the expected effects on the

exploitation. We strive for an approach based on whole life cycle costs: all costs and revenues connected with an action must be made transparent. We therefore don’t restrict ourselves to only the buildings operating costs, but we also identify the effect of sustainable measures on productivity and health of employees. For each scenario and its connected measures our experts can determine impact, costs and revenues. This creates a business case for every scenario. Royal HaskoningDHV | Greening your assets

Greening your assets | Royal HaskoningDHV

We aim to be as specific as possible in defining roadmaps, taking all relevant disciplines and aspects in to account and setting up a plan with actions and the implementation of concrete measures.

Balance of perspectives To create and monitor sustainable value in the design process, and to get future-proofing sufficiently visible, it is important to link the ambitions and objectives of the organization to a business case in which financial feasibility and technical potential are taken into account. Thinking from these three values provides structure in the approach of different issues in relation to sustainability and identifies and discusses interfaces

between disciplines. The themes related to sustainability which were discussed earlier are consistent with this approach. Subsequently, in the design process we look at the technical potential from various perspectives:  Practical sustainable value: the accommodation connects optimally to the primary and supporting processes.  Experiential sustainable value: the buildings and location are perceived as

sustainable to all stakeholders. The design of building, site and interior, as well as the systems and hence the indoor climate, should support this.  Technical sustainable value: water, materials and energy are dealt with efficiently and effectively, without affecting the quality of the accommodation. Advice on optimization of energy performance should support this.

Significant reduction in CO2 emissions and reduction in total costs of ownership

Municipality of Nijmegen, The Netherlands

Revolving fund for existing assets in Nijmegen Royal HaskoningDHV has been awarded the responsibility for the maintenance of all municipal buildings in Nijmegen and is therefore a key player to achieve the above mentioned goals. Both technical and financial hurdles had to be taken to make significant progress. Up until now, the usual approach for maintenance was mere replacement of components due to their condition/status. Royal HaskoningDHV has developed an approach to identify opportunities for improvement linked to maintenance activities and has developed a financial

framework for the municipality to cover the additional investments. The result is a redeveloped maintenance plan, linked to a revolving investment fund. This way the municipality can gradually improve their real estate portfolio with zero effect on the municipalities budget. After completion of the plan the benefits will remain, while the need for re-investment will end, resulting in a lower cost of ownership in the future. Hence the result is a very significant reduction in emission while reducing costs as well.

Energy Optimization Lower energy usage of 45% results in cost saving of 25% (approx. € 60.000,-/year)

World Trade Center, Amsterdam Climate control in buildings is a major expense for organizations which they hardly can control. It is therefore essential that your installations work and deliver the highest possible efficiency. Maintenance must be in order. At the same time you want an energy contract that does not make you pay too much. Monitoring by Royal HaskoningDHV will realize significant savings in maintenance and energy costs, which can amount to several hundreds of thousands of euros. Our case studies show that we deliver the


Greening your assets | Royal HaskoningDHV

added value we promise. We will achieve the best indoor climate for the best price. Many organizations assume that the installations in their buildings work properly. Through our many years of experience, we know that often significant gains can be achieved. Our monitoring quickly reveals those options. We examine your systems for water, heat, cold and energy. A baseline measurement maps your entire energy system: how much do you take off, at

what time, what you pay and what is the equipment’s performance? What is the status of the maintenance? Should certain equipment be replaced? We also consider the contracts with your energy suppliers in relation to your circumstances. Subsequently you will receive a plan of action that will provide you with flexible, efficient and affordable energy and well-functioning installations for many years to come.

To visualize sustainability of accommodations in order to be able to compare buildings, multiple methods are available. The best known examples are LEED and BREEAM. As an independent consultancy firm Royal HaskoningDHV uses all these various certification methods. We use these methods for measuring and certification but also as a design tool to translate your ambitions into actual sustainability measures. We perform, for example, a quick scan at the beginning of the project to find out how the design is rated compared to the aspirations and what the

possibilities are for improvement in respect of location, investment and operation. In addition, the review can serve as a basis for sustainability certification, to obtain financial support from the government. Royal HaskoningDHV is frequently engaged in leading the certificating process for our clients. Within our company there is a team of several experts, who have been involved in multiple large-scale certification projects for clients worldwide. They have experience in all phases of a project: quick-scan/pre-assessment, integration of sustainability in design,

contractor training & guidance and submittal. It is important that all certification processes are embedded in the project design and construction organization. The key to successful implementation of sustainability in a building is an integrative approach. In the early design stage, most degrees of freedom for design choices are available, which makes it possible to focus on measures that are in line with the building philosophy and that bring long-term benefits for the company and the community.

Royal HaskoningDHV Head Office Amersfoort, The Netherlands Royal HaskoningDHV’s renovation of the 40-year-old building helps the company to once again shape its (sustainability) ambitions. Royal HaskoningDHV opted for a sustainable renovation of the building in terms of lifecycle, energy consumption, carbon footprint, material reuse and finance. On the one hand a matter of ‘noblesse oblige’ for a company which is specialized in sustainability, on the other hand the

result of a convincing calculation of the design team. Ultimately, the sustainable renovation turned out to be even less expensive than a conventional renovation. Sustainability measures were evaluated for energy performance and CO2 reduction by a multi-disciplinary design team. On the basis of effectiveness and costs, a number of measures were integrated into the design. The facades are made entirely from glass and feature

sun-regulated light protection, whereby more daylight enters the workplaces. Together with the facade a new HVAC system was integrated, ict and lighting was modernized, and the entire building was more insulated. In order to get better results with fewer investments (what do we really need) the design team made a lot of performance calculations. The effectiveness of insulation, white roof finishing material, sun protection, and HVAC systems were developed together towards an integrated sustainable design.

Lower energy consumption results in 100.000 euro cost reduction (35%)

Viracopos Airport São Paulo, Brasil

The extension of Viracopos International Airport in São Paulo will deliver enormous benefit to Brazil’s economy and its people when it completes in 2014. The design of the terminal building incorporates a space for the effective flow of people as well as a spatial volume that provides openness. This is achieved by limiting the number of main columns and the provision of a large span roof structure. The tree shapes ensure the integration of architecture andload bearing structure within the terminal building. The airport design includes a 3 step strategy for future expansion. Therefore the piers and the terminal building have a structured modular configuration, based


Greening your assets | Royal HaskoningDHV

on linear repetitive patterns. This pattern is used as a blueprint for the future expansions, in which modules are copied in the given direction.Next to possibilities for future expansion, the design team also paid attention to other sustainable measures like energy and water. For reuse of water, thereby minimizing the use of potable water, various provisions are foreseen in the design. Rain water from roofs, water condensated from air handling units and waste water from sewage treatment facilities is collected in external water storage basins. This water is used for the cooling tower in the chiller plant on site.

Compactness and modularity to aid future expansion

SUSTAINABLE MEASURES:  The curved roof of the terminal building is covered entirely with synthetic roof covering with sealed-in flexible PV cells  White EPDM roofing materials in the piers and light colors on the façade to prevent heat gain  Approximately two meters deep horizontal louvers, made of fiber reinforced composite, that protect the glass façade from direct sunlight  Rain water collection to use as grey water supply, for example for cooling the AHU’s (air handling units)

Grain Building Pretoria, South-Africa


Greening your assets | Royal HaskoningDHV

Protection of threatened species and improvement of biodiversity

The Grain Building is a new 4500 m2 corporate building for the Maize Trust, containing offices, laboratories, an auditorium and cafeteria. The Building is developed in an area with Red data species in the Bronberg Mountain. The Environmental Management plan required accommodating a habitat for the threatened specie ‘Juliana Golden Mole’ (Neamblysomus julianae) and also during construction the species were protected. In addition, energy efficient measures had to be implemented for effective operation of the SA Grain Laboratories but it was imperative to balance with stringent indoor environmental control for four different laboratories. The design team considered various alternatives (geothermal underground ventilation system and an alternative heating-

and-cooling system based on solar power) but these could not guarantee the air quality in the laboratories. During seasonal testing it is crucial for the Laboratories to have continuous operations and well-controlled indoor microclimate to specific temperature bands and humidity. The strategy for energy efficiency and optimal indoor environmental was to calculate diverse scenarios using different methodologies ahead of deciding on the implemented system, which is a chilled water-cooled HVAC combined with Building Management System. Passive solar design measures were in addition introduced to the envelope of the building which allows winter sun heat storage and screening summer solar angles with west and south facades being well-insulated.

SUSTAINABLE MEASURES:  Solar screens and light shelves to block north sun angles and reflect natural light.  Insulation with cavity filled polystyrene  Double glazing on south facades.  Energy mass-storage with deep cavities filled with fly-ash.  Solar roof lights to provide natural light  Light-switching occupation detection  Rain water storage for irrigation.  Sanitary fittings with infra-red sensors  Conservation area specifically for an endangered species, the Juliana Golden Mole
