From our first international PHYSEEbility Check to our first international project! Together with real estate investor and developer Meyer Bergman, we will expand our SmartSkin solution beyond the Dutch border, into Ireland. In 2019, the Grafton Place commercial redevelopment project, in the heart of Dublin, will be equipped with triple paned glass SmartWindows, inner sun blinds and screen lines. This new sustainable space will offer its stores, companies and users a greener and healthier experience.
Introducing the healthiest working community in Europe! We are humbled to have our SmartSkin installed in the redeveloped Pharos office building, in Hoofddorp, near the Schipol Airport. Thanks to collaborations with Cairn, Coare and Pilkington, we will integrate double paned SmartWindows with screen lines, being amongst many sustainable innovations giving the users a new level of well-being at work. This healthy and thriving community, conceptualised by De Nieuwe Draai, embodies the positive environments buildings can offer, rather than a simple office space.
The new Binck Kade complex will be the first in its area to install our Smartwindows, accessorised with automated and integrated sun blind systems, increasing the amount of daylight and energy savings of its users, leading to happier and healthier living. After conducting our solar analysis, we established the potential energy savings and started planning. The EPC reduction of 0.1 is an insight into the potential of energy efficient buildings.
The BOLD apartment inhabitants will be amongst the first in the world to enjoy the luxury of completely transparent electricity generating windows in their homes. The BOLD tower will be energy positive, making it a first-class example of sustainable living. By investing in PowerWindows, VORM creates a sustainable and healthy living environment for the inhabitants of the BOLD tower, who will also be proud occupants of a building which has an EPC rating of -0.12. This result should be fully accredited to the intrinsically motivated developer VORM Ontwikkeling and the incomparable innovative facade builder Facédo.
Where design meets sustainability. More than 100m2 of PowerWindows have been installed in the south facade of the new sustainably-renovated Dutch Postcode Lottery headquarters in Amsterdam Zuid-As, carrying the BREEAM Certification level ‘outstanding’. PHYSEE is proud to be amongst the innovative solutions contributing towards an energy positive building and the most sustainable redevelopment in The Netherlands!
Let the building do the thinking. Our SmartWindow technology has been installed into EDGE Olympic, the smart and healthy office space, built future-ready. This building has been creatively retrofitted in order to achieve new dimensions of grid technology, sustainability and user comfort, enabling it to receive a BREEAM Excellent recognition. Both EDGE and PHYSEE believe in smart technologies offering the best solutions future energy savings, making it a perfect match.
The first introduction of our SmartSkin component, the PowerWindow, was introduced with this pilot project together with Rabobank, showing sustainable initiative. Together with EDGE Technologies, Rabobank, UNStudio, ASW Gevelbouw, Stolker Glas and VolkerWessels, we successfully launched our technology by installing 30m2 of PowerWindows into the newly renovated office space of Rabobank in Eindhoven. This building has received the ‘excellent’ rating of BREEAM certification and meets high standards of sustainable renovation, which mirrors our innovative approach towards energy neutral buildings.
We have different ambassadors spread out across Europe. They are an extension of our product development and enable us to increase the speed of progress regarding our innovation. Every ambassadors has the option to charge their electronic devices on their SmartSkin applications wherever their window is installed. As the ambassador projects are active and providing sufficient information, we are currently not accepting additional participants.
This August we are bundling our strengths with Dura Vermeer to construct an exceptional project, starting with the realisation of a smart and sustainable facade for their Inspiration Center, where their construction and real estate operations take place. In the heart of the Netherlands, the new building will be equipped with the SmartSkin combination of SmartWindows and internal sun blinds from Hunter Douglas. SmartSkin will be ensuring a proactive climate control which generates healthy and comfortable working environments for the Inspiration Center to do exactly what it’s made for: Inspire!
