In sports you must always be able to rely on your own energy and whatever nature gave you. Evidently ASICS, the running shoes specialist, must have envisaged something similar for their European headquarters in Hoofddorp: an office which is largely self-supporting concerning energy. Therefore OVG Real Estate developed an office that ‘runs’ on bio-fuels.
From a sustainability point of view the building cleverly uses the heat that is generated from the nearby cogeneration (WKK). A part of the building’s power is also generated by means of solar panels. Both ASICS and their customers always aim for a place at the podium. Thanks to the cooperation with OVG Real Estate, the ASICS office is among the best Dutch, most sustainable buildings.
