Approach & working methodology
As a delegated project developer, we aim to make an impact. Together with our clients, we create national and international sustainable, high-quality real estate developments. We not only consider the well-being of people, animals, and the environment, but also focus on planning and budgeting. With each project, we put ourselves in our clients' shoes to maximize its potential. That's how we strive to make a difference.
Our approach & working method is based on 6 pillars:
Delegated Project Developer of High-Quality Real Estate
Making an Impact
Creative & Smart Concepts
We Take Care of Everything
7 x BREEAM Outstanding
Although Volantess is a young company, our team has years of experience working together. So far, we have achieved 7 BREEAM Outstanding certifications for the development of sustainable distribution centers. Being recognized for the knowledge and experience of our team is a great compliment. The remarkable design of The Tube distribution center in Tilburg is an example of this. Another example is the realization of the unique design of the circular apartment complex Juf Nienke in IJburg. It is currently the most sustainable residential building in Amsterdam.
Maximizing value creation
- We minimize energy consumption to effectively reduce CO₂ emissions.
- We focus on energy generation from renewable sources such as solar and wind.
- In cases where reliance on fossil fuels is unavoidable, we ensure the utmost efficiency in their usage.
We have extensive experience in BREEAM certification, the international sustainability label for creating sustainable buildings with minimal environmental impact. To date, our team has achieved 7 BREEAM Outstanding scores.
For every project, we consider how the building can be seamlessly integrated into the landscape and its surroundings, while showing respect for (local) flora and fauna. Our aim is to enhance the local nature and biodiversity whenever possible. Together with an ecologist from our network, we investigate the local flora & fauna at the start of a project and integrate it into the plan, for example by placing a bat hotel or toad pool. From step one, we take into account the (im)possibilities and (legal) obligations for nature. In this way we limit the chance of delay and the associated costs. This may involve features such as the placement of a bat hotel or a frog pond. Right from the beginning, we take into account the (im)possibilities and (legal) obligations regarding nature conservation. By doing so, we minimize the risk of delays and the associated costs.
Creating real estate is one thing. As a delegated real estate developer, we go for the extra mile. Our credo is to provide comprehensive support, taking care of everything according to your needs: from the complete development of a building to facilitating the transfer to the end investor. We also supervise the pricing and coordination of the (lease) contracts from start to finish, including the entire execution and aftercare. Regardless of the project’s stage – whether it’s in the beginning, middle, or final phase – we step in and ensure its success. Whether it involves land acquisition, conducting due diligence investigations, obtaining the necessary permits, or securing financing, we handle it all. Within the given deadline and budget.
