The building is based on a digital infrastructure that connects everything and everyone within its walls to a single cloud platform. A smartphone app lets users personalise their workplace, with the possibility to customise the lighting and temperature, continuously measuring noise levels and air quality to inform choices. This same technology also lets users access the building, quickly locate their colleagues, and find available meeting rooms or workplaces. The sophisticated digital infrastructure is flexible, making it future-proof. Extra services can be easily added to meet the changing needs of tenants and users. This enables EDGE Olympic to continuously update its system to contribute to user comfort, productivity and creativity.
Theme based areas shared by all subtenants and users in the building with special features for inspiration, relaxation and collaboration. Equipped with meeting rooms, informal seating and hot-desks.
Closed off spaces on a floor in different sizes which can be combined to provide studios with a maximum of 20 desks for the exclusive use of one user. This dedicated space is delivered with an EDGE Fit-out (incl. loose furniture).
Entire floor(s) of a building or a section thereof for the exclusive use of a subtenant. This dedicated space is in principle delivered without fit-out.
The conditions in buildings have been shown to strongly influence people’s wellbeing from giving great comfort and joy, down to causing severe sick building syndrome. Today’s demanding work environment requires workspaces, where users can feel at their very best. EDGE Technologies aims to increase the health, engagement and productivity of every user in our building, helping our subtenants to excel.
EDGE Olympic follows a new sustainability strategy to maximize the benefits for both people and the planet. The building aims to be one of the first offices in The Netherlands to be at least WELL Gold certified, bringing together the latest research and technical innovations in health and wellbeing. In addition, EDGE Olympic has been designed to minimize its environmental impact. Instead of demolishing the original building it was redeveloped, reusing existing materials and introducing circular products and systems. The old natural stone, for instance, now serves as flooring at ground level and the additional top part of the building was constructed using a demountable wooden structure and a Cradle-to-Cradle certified facade.
Upon completion, EDGE Olympic will also have an Energy Label A and a BREEAM Excellent is being pursued. EDGE Olympic is scheduled for delivery in May this year.
Whether they spend only a few minutes in the building or a longer period of time, employees and visitors alike will notice that this office building is anything but traditional. A smartphone is the key and remote control for the building. Whether you want to reserve a meeting room or wish to access the car park, it takes only a few clicks to make it happen. Every phase of the building development is based on users and their personal needs. The result is an inspiring environment with a wide variety of flexible workspaces that facilitate all forms of work.
