Fokker Logistics Park

Excellent accessibility, ultimately sustainable

Fokker Logistics Park

Fokker Logistics Park | Excellent accessibility, ultimately sustainable

Delta, VolkersWessels and Reggeborgh Groep have created the Fokker Logistics Park by redeveloping the former factory of the Fokker aircraft manufacturer near Schiphol. At the site where aircraft, such as the iconic Fokker F27 Friendship were built there is now an attractive business park of approximately 230.000 m2. This is a good example of a project showing how sustainability and profit go hand in hand.

 

High quality finish of public spaces

At the site there are several tenants located in 19 different buildings with their own unique architecture. Within a set palette of colours each building has its own shape and appearance which allows the buildings to be interesting and yet still retain a unity with the whole of the park. The design around the buildings is very typical of the way in which Delta develops, with attractive open public spaces with water features, places to sit and lots of greenery. The high-quality layout and 24-hour security are important reasons why tenants have chosen for this location.

Reuse of materials

Fokker Logistics Park is unique in the Netherlands. Its buildings are equipped with energy efficient installations, efficient lighting and heating systems, plus solar energy. During the design and phased construction, attention was increasingly given to sustainable building methods.  The most recent building, Fokker 7|8, is the first Cradle to Cradle optimized logistics building in the world. In its development, a lot of attention has been paid to the use of healthy materials and the reuse of materials. There is a three-part sewage system on the site and sustainable innovations such as asphalt and planting that purify CO2 as well as providing noise reduction, protection from the wind and enhancing biodiversity.

                                      

Gateway to Europe

The spacious site houses a variety of businesses with a unique network of access routes. It is located at Schiphol East next to one of Europe’s largest freight airports, Schiphol Airport. The logistics park was established in a collaboration between Delta Development Group, Reggeborgh Group and VolkerWessels, and together they have been responsible for the redevelopment of the whole site since 1999.

  • Purification of contaminated factory buildings, land and groundwater. Based on biodegradation and cleaning on site..
  • 3.000 m2 solar panels generate (480 kwp) of solar energy at both Fokker Logistics Park and Park 20|20 in Hoofddorp.
  • Relaxation, inspiration and outdoor space form an integral part of the masterplan around the buildings
  • Fokker Logistics Park has been nominated for several awards in recent years, including the best industrial area in the Netherlands and the best redevelopment project in the Amsterdam metropolitan area
  • Cost savings of € 2 million through reuse of 97% of pre-existing on-site materials from previous buildings.
  • Fokker Logistics Park achieves excellent investment and rental returns with its high quality standard

NOMINATION PLABEKA AWARD 2015

 


 
In 2015, Fokker Logistics Park received a nomination for the Plabeka Award as one of three projects.

A fragment from the jury's press release:

"... The redevelopment was a complex matter because of the combination of demolition and construction work, the clean-up task and safety issues. The redevelopment took place in phases. This was done deliberately because the buildings were rented out and there was no need to take everything down at the same time. This approach limited pre-investment and gave time to plan and assess the potential to re-use buildings. It turned out that almost all buildings were too function-specific for re-use, so more than 60 buildings were eventually demolished. It was possible to save Hangar 73 and building 59 was renovated for KPN for use as a Datacenter. It is remarkable that almost all materials recovered from the demolition have been re-used for the new buildings and infrastructure in the park. The soil pollutants have been largely biologically disintegrated and plans have been implemented to monitor groundwater contamination. The contaminated groundwater has been shielded off and in the course of time will biodegrade. The new buildings were constructed in accordance with Cradle to Cradle principles and thus form future materials banks. "

F27 Friendship

  1. Fokker 27
  1. In 1953 Fokker began building aircraft at the current Fokker Logistics Park. The first flying prototype was the F27 friendship for which KLM placed the first order four years later. The aircraft’s maiden flight took place on 23rd March, 1958. In total, 581 Fokker Friendship aircraft were built at Schiphol, but thirty years after the start of the production the F27 was stopped. The bankruptcy of Fokker Aircraft on March 15, 1996 meant the end of production for the Fokker F27 Friendship, however this aircraft – chosen as industrial design of the 20th century- deserves her prominent place in the history of world aviation. On Delta’s initiative, and in collaboration with various sponsors, a replica of the prototype Fokker 27 PH-NIV was placed at the entrance to Fokker Logistics Park as an eye-catching and interesting reminder of Fokker’s past .
