Rabobank Land van Cuijk en Maasduinen Head Office Boxmeer

Rabobank Land van Cuijk en Maasduinen Head Office Boxmeer

Sustainability and the environment formed the starting points in the construction of the new head office of Rabobank Land van Cuijk en Maasduinen in Boxmeer. The new building therefore achieved a 'Very Good' score in the BREEAM certification. This evaluation of the sustainability performance of buildings takes into account aspects such as reuse of materials, waste processing at the construction site, welfare of employees and use of environmentally-friendly energy. In the design of the outdoor space, the ecological aspects were central. For example, the rainwater is collected in special biotopes and the parking spaces are interspersed with green 'islands'.

For the planting of the islands, a mix of native and exotic multi-stems was chosen, to create an impressive sight in all seasons and contribute to the ecological value and biodiversity. Among the native trees, the eight-metre-tall hornbeams create an unusual spectacle with the whimsical structure of the multiple stems. This species is a very important host plant for butterflies, the rare junebug, the hawfinch and the nuthatch. In the range of exotic trees, the red-leaved 'Royal Burgundy' ornamental cherry is a real eye catcher. This cultivar with violet leaves has a spectacular pink blossom in spring and complements the colour palette in autumn with a beautiful fiery red colour.
