Reconstruction of Hotel van der Valk
Roof as an important factor
The roof of the new main building plays a key role in making the construction sustainable. Rainwater, for instance, is kept separate from sewer water and flows into the valley of Geleen. In addition, a green rooftop terrace has been constructed and 312 solar panels have been installed on the hotel's existing roof.
Precast concrete units
The shell of the building, comprising approx. 6,800 m2 in three layers, is entirely made of precast concrete units. All the façades have been fitted with aluminium curtain walls in combination with wooden carpentry and a distinctive facing brick. The entrance has been completely renovated too. The new restaurant with its large conservatory opened in October 2017.
