The Office

Central Plaza is also very well suited to closed office partitioning. The example space plan included in the technical booklet contains an efficient occupancy rate of 13,1 m2 per workplace. That is a capacity of up to 95 workplaces per floor.

Offices

The spacious offices of Rotterdam Central Plaza that are for rent are ideally suited for open space partitioning. In Central Plaza the maximum occupancy rate is extremely efficient at 10 m2 per workplace. One floor can accommodate roughly 110 workplaces. All systems are dimensioned in such a way that with 10 m2 per workplace, the interior climate meets the prescribed requirements, while still having 20% spare capacity for air and electricity in order to locally accommodate additional density, for example for meeting rooms. The modular 1,200 m2 or 2,400 m2 floor plates are also perfectly suitable for The New Way of Working.

 

ENERGY LABEL A

Cromwell Property Group is committed to sustainable development of office space. To reduce its environmental impact, the Group works to reduce its CO2 emissions and energy consumption and make more efficient use of resources. This Group-wide vision was translated to the Rotterdam Central Plaza offices by the ambition to achieve an energy label A post-renovation.

Cromwell Property Group’s commitment to environmental, economic and social sustainability has been recognised with listings in major global indexes such as the FTSE4Good and DJSI (World and Europe). Cromwell Property Group is a signatory of the UN Global Compact.

One of the main goals of the renovation of Rotterdam Central Plaza was to deliver a sustainable building offering the following benefits, among other things, to users:

 

01 – Extra insulation: improved insulation of the roofing and façades greatly contributes to lowering energy consumption of the office.

02 – Heat regeneration: the air-conditioning boxes are fitted with a heat regeneration system, using exhaust air to pre-heat/pre-cool the incoming fresh air.

03 – Presence detection: the lighting fixtures are energy-efficient, daylight-dependent and have motion sensors for turning off.

04 – Remote controls: presence detection combined with remote controls for lighting, heating and cooling ensure substantial energy savings.

05 – Air conditioning: air conditioning is provided through a four-pipe induction unit system. The set-point temperature is 21°C and varies in winter and summer. The temperature is also higher or lower when a room is occupied.

06 – Natural light: transparent lift doors allow natural light to enter, lowering the need for artificial lighting in the reception hall.

07 – Motion detection: motion-detection sensors in the water taps in the sanitary blocks allow water savings.

08 – Building Management System: climate control and lighting can be monitored and controlled centrally through the Building Management System. This enables optimal tuning of the climate system of each floor based on the specific usage and space planning, limiting energy consumption to a minimum.

09 – New lifts: a full renovation of the lift systems ensures energy, and hence cost, savings, in addition to increasing user comfort.

010 – New cooling machines: new energy-efficient cooling machines bring energy, and hence cost, savings for both existing and new users of the office building.

011 – Excellent location: last but not least, the location opposite Rotterdam Central Station guarantees an exceptionally small carbon footprint for the companies residing in Central Plaza, by offering excellent accessibility by public transportation to employees.

Cross-section

Central Plaza Rotterdam was designed in 1992 by architect W. Th. Ellerman and partly redesigned in 2011 by architect Group A. It is a multi-functional complex comprising mainly office space, but also an underground car park, a retail gallery and a residential tower. The office space is comprised of office accommodation and archives. The car park is located under the office building and is directly reachable by lift (parking norm roughly 1:70). The retail gallery is located on the ground floor of the office building. The residential tower is located behind the office building.

AVAILABILITY

Approximately 16,000 m2 office space is for rent, of which one independent building of 12,000 m², 800 m2 archive space and 200 parking spaces are being renovated in Central Plaza in 2011. For up-to-date information on availability for letting purposes, please contact us.

EFFICIENT FLOOR PLATES

The office floors can be partitioned in an efficient manner, in order to reduce the number of m2 necessary per workplace. Both open and closed partitioning can be easily realised, thanks to the modular layout of the floors. For organisations favouring large floor plates, two floors of 1,200 m2 can be connected for a large floor plate of roughly 2,400 m2. The climate-control systems as well as the electrical systems are based on a maximum occupancy space usage of 10 m2 per workplace. The systems are engineered with a spare capacity of 20% in order to provide higher air volumes locally to facilitate meeting rooms.

PARKING

The Central Plaza car park covers two floors and has a total capacity of 487 vehicles. The car park is accessible to tenants of the office building as well as to their visitors and the general public, through the entrance at the rear of the building, on Kruisstraat. The office floors are directly accessible from the car park, through two lifts for each of the two office towers.

The car park has been fully renovated, with light colours and new signage, for increased visitor comfort. A new parking system has been installed, as well as two charge points for electric cars. Tenants of Central Plaza can benefit from contracting spaces for their employees and can also purchase exit cards for their visitors.
