DC Fabory in Tilburg achieved BREEAM-NL Design Certificate

Fabory has commissioned the construction of a new distribution centre and associated office facilities on the Kraaiven industrial estate in Tilburg. Fabory offers a wide range of tools, industrial and safety products. The company is present in various European countries and exports it on a global scale. The hall with a surface area of approximately 14,500 sqm. is expected to be taken into operation by Fabory in mid-2019.

The building will be cooled and heated by means of heat and cold storage in the ground (WKO). In the summer, groundwater will be pumped from the cold source to cool the building. By cooling the building, this water heats up and is then pumped into the hot spring. In the winter, this hot water is pumped back from the heat source to heat the building. This cools the water down and the cooled water is pumped into the cold source. This creates a cycle that can be repeated continuously.

Recently, the design certificate with a Very Good classification was obtained according to the New Construction & Renovation scheme of BREEAM-NL. C2N is involved as BREEAM Assessor for this project.
