Construction projects

Amsterdam Zuidas is working with various developers and contractors to build a completely new city district. The work involves numerous individual building projects. In its early days, Zuidas was an office location for leading companies, now we want the area to be much more than that. It will be a full, unique neighbourhood where people can live, work, and enjoy recreational activities. Read all about it.

Disruption

All construction projects cause a degree of disruption. Construction vehicles are constantly coming and going throughout Zuidas, huge cranes are visible from many kilometres away and noise pollution is unavoidable. However, that certainly doesn’t mean contractors can simply do as they please: they must comply with all legislation and regulations concerning noise pollution and other inconveniences. And that’s not all: we have also established additional requirements within our ASLC framework (Accessibility, Safety, Liveability and Communication). All contractors working in Zuidas must comply with our requirements concerning these four vital aspects. For example, they must use silent construction techniques to the greatest possible extent and if technical necessities make noise pollution unavoidable, they must carry out these activities within designated time periods. We also oblige contractors to inform all stakeholders of any building-related inconveniences in a timely manner.

Sustainability

Zuidas’s builders have made sustainability a top priority. There is enormous interest in energy-efficient building, circularity, green areas, and water in, on and around buildings. Together with the Zuidas business community (cooperating within organizations such as Hello Zuidas and the Zuidas Green Business Club), we encourage a culture of responsibility in order to ensure this neighbourhood is both environmentally friendly and energy-neutral. We are seeing to it that the public spaces include sufficient, high-quality green areas and water. Our aim is not only to make Zuidas an attractive area in which to live and work, but also to ensure that it is future-proof. One of the demands of a changing climate is that we must make room for rainwater. In addition, we want Zuidas to be a natural home for all types of flora and fauna.
