building: a three-line
In a previous article, Operations Director Ronald Geus shared his views on innovation. Today, we are talking about sustainability, and in particular about what Ronald calls his “three-line approach”.
What do you mean by this three-line approach?
“I think sustainability can be improved in the construction process on three different levels, or along three different lines.”
“Discussions about sustainability are often restricted to the third line, because it is the most obvious level. The installation of LED lighting, for example, replacing a boiler with a heat pump system, or the extent to which construction materials are produced environmentally-friendly. Sustainability, however, starts earlier in the process.”
