Congratulations to Arjen Ketting who has received his BREEAM 'diploma'. He is the second official Breeam epert at MVRDV, after Marta Pozo Gil, who is currently director of MVRDV's Asian office in Shanghai. 

Having in-house BREEAM and LEED assessors makes it possible to direct buildings early on in the design process towards a better energy efficiency. Markthal Rotterdam for example will reach BREEAM Very Good whilst the soon to open Pushed Slab in Paris is being completed under strict French HQE legislation. In Bordeaux and Almere MVRDV is working on CO2 neutral neighbourhoods.
