Fokker Logistics Park

Deze uitgestrekte locatie was oorspronkelijk de thuisbasis van Fokker, de vliegtuigfabrikant achter de gevreesde driedekker van de Rode Baron en het iconische Fokker 27 Friendship twin prop-vliegtuig. Sinds de jaren vijftig waren er 60 verschillende gebouwen op het terrein ontwikkeld, de meeste haastig wanneer de behoefte zich voordeed. Dat vormde een logistieke uitdaging bij het realiseren van onze plannen voor een ultramodern, duurzaam logistiek centrum naast de luchthaven Schiphol. Het was misschien een test, maar het resulteerde in ‘s werelds eerste Cradle to Cradle geoptimaliseerde logistieke bedrijvenpark

The first thing visitors see is the old Fokker F27 airplane, revived and flown one last time from Schipol to be placed here permanently to mark the history of this spot, where over 500 F27s were built. Beyond, abundant planting and water features line the park and offer spacious, quiet outdoor spaces for breaks.
Inside the buildings and offices, green walls bring the outside in, marking boundaries between work and break-out space, improving environment, air quality and productivity.
The redevelopment was a complex matter because of the combination of demolition and construction work, the clean-up task and safety issues. Working in phases gave time to plan and assess the potential to re-use buildings… It is remarkable that almost all materials recovered from the demolition have been re-used for the new buildings and infrastructure in the park.

But the real innovation is in how we applied Cradle to Cradle principles to this project, over the course of this 13 year project pushing at every moment for what was possible with new and evolving circular innovations. Demolition of the derelict buildings on site would have released almost 4,500 tons of CO2 and cost around €2million. Instead, we saved two of the original buildings and re-used 97% of materials on site, cutting carbon release drastically and eliminating the transport emissions of shifting over 4,000 tonnes of waste.
We also reclaimed polluted soil, used C2C certified, non-toxic build materials and designed the new buildings for recycling and re-use. C2C principles had not been applied in this kind of project or on this scale. It led to a Plabeka Award 2015 and nominations for best industrial area in the Netherlands and best redevelopment project in the Amsterdam metropolitan area.
Today, the 230,000m2 site is occupied by a range of logistics and service sector tenants and still sets a high benchmark for responsible development. We pushed Fokker to limits of what was possible at the time, proving to ourselves that finding a way was (nearly always) possible. For us, this project was a test in thinking creatively, inventively and persevering in our commitment to our Future Forever promise.
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.

Sustainable Development Goals

Fokker Logistics Park contains the following materials and characteristics that apply to Delta's Next Generation Logistics concept:
non-toxic C2C certified materials, outdoor communal green space with waterways and planting to absorb fine dust and CO2 and attract biodiverse wildlife, biodegradable material used for drainage and geotextiles, close to transport links.
Circular design
97% materials on site re-used; smart engineering reduced concrete needed by 17.6%; C2C gold certified non-PVC sewage plus C2C certified materials for roofing, windows, shelters, ceilings, steel coating; halogen-free cabling and pipes; grey water system with biodegradation capacity.
all-electric with charging points for cars.; shares excess energy generated by solar panels with nearby buildings.
