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.”

Drinking water at the Quadrant4 office and achieving nice goals

For 12 months now we have been drinking the water from the Made Blue cooler and we have been contributing to clean drinking water in places in the world where clean drinking water is not always easy available.

We are happy to report that by drinking approximately 1000 liters of sparkling water and approximately 1000 liters of still water in the past year, we have achieved the following :

• 1 million liters of clean water realized in developing countries

• Up to 7 tons of CO2 saved in Europe and in developing countries (equivalent to 4x return AMS-JFK)

Thank you very much thirsty colleagues and thirsty visitors to our office, let’s try to drink even more water next year!

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.

Quadrant4 is taking on the port of Rotterdam

We are pleased to share with you that we will be doing the project management for a big development in the Rijnhaven in Katendrecht, Rotterdam. Katendrecht has been through many developments in its lifetime. The neighbourhood used to be a place frequented by night workers, now, it is a popular destination for outside visitors and the inhabitants of Rotterdam. Enjoying a culinary experience, visiting an art exhibit or theater show, or simply just drinking a nice cup of coffee; Katendrecht has got it all. Katendrecht is currently developing into a true hotspot. 

The project we will be working on is a development of over 85.000 m2, containing housing, retail, a hotel, office spaces and plenty of parking possibilities. Development has started at the end of 2020 and is expected to be finished at the end of 2024. The project will officially be completed in early 2025. The design of the development is the work of Joke Vos architecten and DEDRIE. Since this is such a large development, it has been parted into several smaller developments. These developments will partly be realised at the same time, and partly after one another. 

We have started phase 1 of the project, Bayhouse. At the end of 2021 the next phase, MGallery Hotel, will start. We are thrilled to help realise this exciting development.

Roparun 2021 is on and Quadrant4 is participating!

After a successful first Roparun in 2019, starting in Paris and ending in Rotterdam, we will be participating in this fantastic event a second time. The Roparun is a relay race where teams use their athletic abilities to raise money for people suffering from cancer.

2021’s edition of the event has been moved to Limburg. Team LEDsFoundation, the team Quadrant4 and Trilux are a part of, will leave Landgraaf on October second and will return to Landraaf on Sunday October third.

The money we raise for the Roparun fund will benefit the care of people with cancer. We hope to match the amount of money we raised back in 2019, but surpassing this amount would be an even more meaningful accomplishment. The only way we can make this happen, is with your support!
