IKEA Zwolle

Herman De Groot Engineers has designed the engineering installations for the new construction of IKEA in Zwolle, the most sustainable retail building in the Netherlands.

The design phase of the project is completed at the end of 2013. The build of the mega home store started in the first quarter of 2014, in the first quarter of 2015 the store opened for the public.

For the mechanical systems, use is made of a ground energy system, a heating pump system and thermic active floors. The return on investment of the warmth and cold generating is therefore very high, and also is the part of the air treatment reduced greatly in relation to traditionally build IKEA locations.

For the electro technical installation, urban windmills will be placed on the edge of the roof and on the free roof area solar panels will be placed. The lighting in the shopping area, the parking garage and the terrain will be completely in LED.
