AW Materieel op Ecopark

Since March 2010 AW Materiaal has been established at the Ecopark in Emmeloord. We built new premises here with a light, modern workshop, cleaning facilities and offices.

In order to realize a climate-neutral building, we chose to use geothermal energy. In designing the building, orientation to the sun was taken into account and a maximum amount of daylight enters the work places, in our offices and in the workshop.

There is more than average attention for sustainability in the Ecopark Emmeloord. In order to guarantee the sublime water quality, the water is purified by means of helofyten filters. Both incoming water and rainwater end up in the water system. Public space was used to position solar collectors that swivel to face the sun. This unique system provides the communal lighting system and the water system with electricity.

The integral approach to sustainability resulted in Stichting Duurzaam Flevoland [Foundation for Sustainable Flevoland] and the Provincial council Flevoland proclaiming Ecopark Emmeloord to be sustainably environment friendly – the only business park in Flevoland to receive this praise.
