Cradle to Cradle Design™ Momentum Continues at Park 20I20

William McDonough + Partners (WM+P) is pleased with the ongoing progress at Park 20|20, the first Cradle to Cradle Design™-inspired development in The Netherlands. On January 31, construction began on SHARE, our newest colorful addition and the park’s second multi-tenant Class A structure. The project is developed by Delta Development Group, who has championed and proven the idea that Cradle to Cradle Design can drive ecological regeneration and reinforce sustainability and economy as a foundation for innovation and growth.

SHARE, like the rest of the development, embodies WM+P’s Cradle to Cradle Design philosophy through Design for Disassembly strategies that support Design for the Circular Economy™. Flexibility in workspace, systems and layout options allow companies to expand or consolidate over time. Additionally, the building also serves as a “material bank,” allowing products and materials to be harvested and reused in the future to provide endless benefits. Cradle to Cradle Certified™ products are integrated where possible to promote the health and well-being of occupants in addition to abundant daylighting, clean air, clean water, optimized acoustics and direct connectivity to natural elements and vegetation.

The building is expected to be complete July 2020. SHARE will be delivered with a BREEAM Excellent and a WELL Silver certificate.
