During the transformation of Binck Eiland, special attention is paid to the sustainable nature of the new residential, working and living environment. Every part of Binck Eiland is being prepared for the construction of an energy-efficient, healthy and liveable residential area that is ready for the future.
Materials from the former SDU printing plant, for instance, are largely reused on site or even disassembled and rebuilt elsewhere. Thanks to the use of modern techniques such as geothermal heating and heat recovery, the entire district will of course be very energy-efficient. This will be combined with the use of solar panels on the roofs, extremely efficient insulation and balanced ventilation of the homes and buildings. A large part of the neighbourhood will no longer be connected to gas.
This allows us to obtain energy label A for the De Binck building and the EPC values for the homes in Binck Kade (apartments) and Binck Plaats (town houses) will be 0.2 and 0.0 respectively. It is even possible to equip the town houses with zero-on-meter facilities.
The public area of Binck Eiland will be provided with lots of green and shady trees. This will make for healthier air and better rainwater management. And... due to the use of available shared cars, fewer parking spaces are needed in the neighbourhood. More space to play for the children and at the same time a sustainable way of transport!
