Louwman builds the most sustainable dealer building in The Netherlands
Louwman Rotterdam-Zuid is building a new dealer store for the brands Toyota, Suzuki and Peugeot in Rotterdam (Cornelisland business park). At this central location, the current Toyota, Suzuki and Peugeot activities of the various Louwman branches in the Rotterdam area will be centralised, each brand retaining its own identity. In addition, there will be one large showroom for sales and used cars and a shared workshop.
The new building project will be built according to the BREEAM-NL certification principle, with the ambition level ‘Outstanding’ being maintained. This impressive location, with its elongated architecture in two layers, will become the first car company in the Netherlands to meet the BREEAM requirements.
The choice for sustainable construction is in line with the ambitions and core values of the Louwman Group. ‘By opting for a sustainable, future-proof building, we not only reduce operational costs but also increase productivity and create a pleasant and healthy environment for our customers and employees. This also fits in with the future philosophy of our company’, states Marco Broere, director of Louwman Dealer Group. The delivery of Louwman Rotterdam-Zuid is expected to take place at the end of the second quarter in 2019.
C2N fullfils the role of BREEAM-NL Assessor for this project.
