Transformation into modernized Van Hessen

At first sight a light transformation but with many innovations!

Quadrant4 & Verschuren Interieurbouw found a unique company at Van Hessen in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel, in a beautiful high-profile location along the A20. Van Hessen’s housing was typical of the 1990’s and required refreshment for both the exterior and interior.

We had discussions with Van Hessen’s management, facility services, HR and marketing and communication, to determine the ambitions.

Outside, the building has been refreshed by cladding the existing facades in off-white. The existing windows are fitted with a modern anthracite wrap. The compact turnstile has made way for a glass front with a spacious and modern enclosed porch along the side. These immediately give an open and transparent feeling and lead you via the beautiful open staircase to the reception area.

The entrance, entrance area and customer reception received a major boost, despite the permanent privacy and security restrictions! We have succeeded in optimizing the entrance and reception and making it transparent and accessible in a warmer and modernized Van Hessen.

The current team and young talent can now take a seat in a light and open interior. Moreover, functions have been added, such as an outdoor space on the roof terrace for relaxation connected to a multifunctional space.

Quote Van Hessen:

The building exudes a new and refreshing élan and is completely in line with the current zeitgeist. There is a lot of light and space and we enjoy working there.

New housing for Verschuren fits like a glove

A new generation, new housing, and their own vision of the future. The new housing fits like a glove for Holly & Toon jr and their team!

The mutual working relationships & internal processes of Verschuren Interior Construction were thoroughly analyzed when our project arrived. We horizontally + vertically translated the results into a plan which fit into the existing boundaries of the existing architecture. After this, we started to form the interior & customization in 2D plans, 3D housing and 3D custom objects.

Within the interior design, designed by Quadrant4 for Verschuren, not 1 cm was left undiscussed. The result is “spacy” housing, designed with a strong 360 mindset. Every element of detail represents a piece of quality & showroom for Verschuren Interior Construction.

Meanwhile, Verschuren’s new housing has been fully put into use. An inspiring working environment, where, from their own house, sales get generated on a high level.

Quote Holly & Toon jr:

“Our housing is the image of what we currently stand for. Ready for the future, proud and grateful! Together with our team we work on inspiring projects every day where we enjoy using our own interior. The spaces in our establishment have been used to ensure we have a fitting room for every type of consultation. Our work café is our favorite. Here we can discuss work in a train seat, at the Giraffe table or on the couch. Are you looking to get inspired as well? The coffee is ready.”

Quadrant4 has a new colleague

Quadrant4 welcomes Marijn Klomp as a new project manager in the areas of sustainability advice and BREEM-NL. Marijn is by no means a stranger to these subjects, the first meeting was actually in the garden of Eric de Vetten. We have since gotten to know Marijn as hard-working and eager to learn, which makes him a perfect addition to our team. In the following paragraphs, Marijn is going to introduce himself to Quadrant4’s network. We are looking forward to guiding him through all aspects of his new position as a BREEAM-NL project manager. We hope Marijn will have both success and fun as a member of the Quadrant4 team. 

A word from Marijn

After studying Small Business & Retail Management, I started my work experience in the supermarket industry. After several years I was ready for a change of career and a new, innovative work environment. Luckily, this is exactly what I found with Quadrant4! Sustainability is something that had interested me greatly since college. In my new role as BREEAM-NL project manager I can fully explore this interest. 

The first meeting I had with Quadrant4 was a great experience for me. I immediately noticed that there was a lot of interest, from the employers in the employees and their ambitions. This gave me a good perspective on personal and professional growth. Currently I have been working at Quadrant4 for about a month, and already a lot of knowledge has been shared with me from multiple colleagues. This has given me a very welcoming feeling, that, in combination with my new role, is what makes this feel like an ‘outstanding’ match!

A Breeam Outstanding score for LC packaging!

Quadrant4 would like to congratulate LC Packaging on receiving the Breeam Outstanding certification! Ben Kessing of Quadrant4 was there to present the certificate to Lucas Lammers, CEO of LC Packaging. The showpiece will be getting a beautiful place inside the new LC Packaging building.

A word from LC Packaging:

At LC Packaging we strive to engage all our stakeholders in our quest for sustainable packaging materials as well as looking to minimize the negative impact on the environment and waste of valuable packaging materials. It should come as no surprise that sustainability was one of the most important requirements when designing our new headquarters.

The new building had to be durable and ready for the future. We wanted it to be one of the most sustainable buildings in the Netherlands. That is not an easy task, but with the help of Quadrant4’s expertise, we are proud to be working in a building which is completely energy neutral. Earning a Breeam Outstanding score is not easy to earn, but Quadrant4 has advised us throughout the entire process. Together, we have had plenty of discussions which always lead to even better ideas. Quadrant4 has advised us honestly, in a straightforward matter, on the best options for our building. This was a big reassurance of our trust in Quadrant4 throughout the process. The Breeam Outstanding Certificate is a meaningful acknowledgement of our efforts and cooperation. 

Breeam’s Sustainability categories explained

Quadrant4 and LC Packaging have built a durable relationship in the past three years. In a Partnerstory, soon to be published, we will share our mutual fascination for sustainability more in depth and talk you through the nine different sustainability categories Breeam works with.
