To express the whole concept that Big Green Egg represents – inspiration, enjoyment, the outdoors, honesty, purity, quality – in the architecture of the new building. The sustainability and manageability of the building were central in this. The building must remain modern and practicable for 20 years.
A building that is super sustainable thanks to the many solar panels on the roof, no need for a gas supply, with heat and cold storage, a buffer zone when it rains and very good insulation. A modern Priva building management system was of course unmissable here. Using this, all the climate systems are controlled in such a way that the premises consume as little energy as possible, and at the same time have a healthy and comfortable interior climate. The control units also fit perfectly into the modern and austere interior of Big Green Egg Europe’s premises.
All the rooms can be controlled separately. Besides this, in every room, the CO2 level is measured, and when needed, the systems automatically supply fresh air. The climate in the building is kept liveable and manageable with a Priva building management system.
Wessel Buddingh, owner of Big Green Egg Europe, looks as proud as can be, and rightly so! Because he has had attractive premises built, and these fit admirably into the mission of his business. Wessel: “The premises we were in became too small and no longer matched the image we as Big Green Egg want to present to our customers and B2B partners. We initially went looking for an existing building, but we couldn’t find a single one that fitted with our brand. This is why we decided to buy a piece of land and build new premises. The environment we occupy – an industrial estate – is hardly inspiring, but that added to the challenge to create an inspiring space.” Now the Big Green Egg Europe team, increased to a staff of 16, works around the tree that stands in the middle of the patio and, in the summer, ensures that the daylight is filtered pleasantly.
