Eldra (TKH-Group), supplier of cables, conduits and connectivity solutions for over 50 years, has installed cables protected with pin flame retardants in two recent sustainable building frontrunner projects: Deloitte’s The Edge building and Danone’s Innovation Centre.
Deloitte’s 40 000 m2 new building in Amsterdam, completed 2014, is “the world’s most sustainable office building” and the second largest building in the world to achieve the BREEAM “Outstanding Sustainability” certification. The Deloitte building will be the workspace for 1 800 staff. Created by Lee Polisano and Ron Baker, architects, it emphasises natural light and transparency to make workspace more agreeable and integrates 700 m2 of solar panels. The PIN flame retardant cables for fire, evacuation, signalling and control supplied by Eldra have the advantage that “they do not release any harmful or corrosive gases containing halogens, unlike conventional cables.” Danone’s 24 000 m2 Innovation Centre opened in Utrecht in 2013. It groups laboratories, offices and testing facilities for Europe, as well as an underground car park, meeting centre, café and sky-bar. Eldra supplied 94 km of PIN flame retardant cables for electrical and technical systems, helping the building achieve BREEAM “Excellent” rating
