H.Essers team moves into new, future-proof headquarters: “A truly inspiring workplace”


The new office and its accompanying car park tower were erected on the site of the former car park. “We opted for a sustainable building and a sustainable approach,” Salvatore adds. “The parking tower makes optimum use of the available surface area, with bicycle parking, green façades and a green roof. We even installed beehives on the roof for even more natural diversity.”

 The sustainable solutions do not stop outside. Electricity is generated by our very own wind turbines and heat pumps ensure the optimum distribution of energy throughout the building. “Cooling and ventilation was a top priority for us, as we wanted to create a pleasant and healthy work environment for our employees,” explains Salvatore. “Innovative sun screens and solar-control glass keep the building cool, while our state-of-the-art ventilation system refreshes the indoor air every minute.”

Quiet warmth

The building was designed with the well-being of both employees and visitors in mind. The ground floor has an auditorium that can accommodate 75 people and the top floor features a multifunctional reception room with a stunning panoramic view of the surrounding area. Here, visitors and employees can enjoy lunch at the temporary pop-up restaurant De Slagmolen. The success of the design is evident in the reactions of our employees. Corporate Marcom Officer Griet Bleukx sees the incredible added value of the new headquarters. “The layout, the design, the use of materials: everything exudes a kind of quiet warmth that speaks to both employees and visitors alike. The windows offer incredible views of the surrounding site and of our red trucks, which are constantly on the move. All of this makes for a truly inspiring workplace.”
