On 20 February 2018, Leiden University real estate company obtained the BREEAM certificate of Demolition and Dismantling, level Excellent. The score achieved is 82.04%. C2N has fulfilled the role of BREEAM-NL Assessor in order to obtain the BREEAM certificate.
The total demolition work includes the preliminary demolition, asbestos removal and subsequent total demolition (and site work) of four different buildings of the Gorlaeus complex (Hoogbouw, LCP Building, Cluster Building and Solvent Warehouse), located at Einsteinweg 55 in Leiden. In addition, the rubble will be broken at the site and will therefore be certified as a building product without transport. This sustainable demolition certainly contributes to the pursuit of a circular economy.
Leiden University is the heart of society and wants to contribute to a sustainable environment. In its real estate policy, and thus in the construction of the new Science Campus, the university also strives for sustainability. This principle was prominently reflected in the tender for the demolition work carried out by Beelen. This way Leiden University is taking its sustainability ambitions seriously.
