Smart technologies for an adaptable, intelligent office building

In 2009 PLP was invited to design The Edge, Deloitte’s new offices in Zuidas, Amsterdam’s business centre. The ambition of the project was two-fold: to consolidate Deloitte’s employees, previously spread around multiple buildings throughout the city, within a single environment; and to create a ‘smart building’, intended as a catalyst for Deloitte’s transition into the digital age. The Edge has a BREEAM new construction certification of ‘Outstanding’ and a score of 98.36 per cent by employing innovative smart technology.
