Green symbolises peace and tranquillity. Needless to say, our central location in Limburg is ideal in that respect. Corda Campus borders the Bokrijk woods and the Kiewit lakes, and is just a stone’s throw from the world-renowned Hoge Kempen National Park. The Corda Campus outdoor area perfectly reflects these natural surroundings. The central courtyard is a green oasis, with fountains and relaxation corners, whereas the campus architecture seeks to strike a balance between work and leisure.
Corda Campus decided to convert an existing, but vacant warehouse into a car park. The Corda1 building has a slanting green roof which provides thermal insulation and acts as a rainwater buffer. The building’s HVAC system is linked to geothermal applications (geothermal heating and heat pumps). And last but not least, during the renovations of the older buildings, Corda Campus systematically takes account of sustainability criteria.
The campus clearly believes in sustainable mobility. Its location, near a train station and at a bus line junction, is ideal in this view. Corda Campus also aims to become a stop in the Spartacus project. Travellers using local trains can easily hop on their bikes and cycle along the paths surrounding the site. We’ve decided to go the extra mile for cyclists with our ‘Blue Bikes’, which quickly take you wherever you need to be, whilst contributing to a cleaner environment. And for those cycling to work every day, we’ve created a large (covered) bicycle shed and useful facilities (showers, lockers etc.).
