Westland town hall

A PCM buffer combined with 800 solar panels. That was the key innovation used by the municipality of Westland to equip its sustainable town hall for a CO2-neutral and energy-efficient future.





This innovative approach was set out in a DBFMO contract with the De Groene Schakel BV consortium. BNG Bank took care of the 'F' in 'DBFMO' (i.e. the Finance). The Groene Schakel consortium will manage Westland's municipal administrative centre for the next 25 years. 

The centre consists of two buildings in Naaldwijk, 800 metres apart. The designs for a public and administrative centre in Verdilaan and a separate building for municipal officials in Laan van de Glazen Stad were characterised by the abundant use of glass. Construction work on the sustainable, energy-neutral buildings, which feature LED lighting and 800 solar panels on the roof to supply energy, began on 18 May 2016. The municipality moved into its new offices on 1 July 2017.



Sustainability that benefits people, the market and the environment is an important element of BNG Bank's mission and is given shape and substance on both sides of the balance sheet. Our sustainable initiatives arise from our ongoing efforts to strike a sustainable balance between the interests of clients, shareholders and employees.
