Non-residential building projects are not designated for residential purposes. These projects are mostly large & comprehensive, like offices, schools, shops and distribution centres. We are currently working on several non-residential projects: the AHOLD Zaandam distribution centre, Bol.com Waalwijk distribution centre.
RENOVATION VS RESTORATION
When existing buildings are renovated they will be designated for a new use, think of the restoration of a church building into an apartment complex or an office building into a shopping destination. Or it can be a matter of restoring the old look of a building or, on the contrary, a completely new look to meet today’s requirements. This can include fire safety, living safety and sustainability. We are currently working on in Bergen op Zoom among others.
The renovation of older buildings or the restoration of feature defining buildings requires knowledge of traditional materials and techniques. That way those buildings can maintain their typical features. Peters and Van Leeuwen has a broad experience in completely restoring older monumental buildings that are part of the atmosphere or the character of a village or city. A good example of this is a beautiful old villa in The Hague that will be changed into a housing complex for seniors.
