At AVEX, we believe in a circular economy. Awareness for sustainable solutions is growing day by day, among ourselves as well as our clients. Our team enables us to come up with smart solutions within the circular model
but by committing to the Circl pavilion, ABN AMRO is taking sustainability in the Netherlands to the next level. Construction, layout as well as operation are set up in accordance with the circular economy principles. In such an economy, production chains are closed and waste is a thing of the past. Quite an ambition, also for all facilities service providers in the building. They take on the challenge together, by forming an ‘FM Coalition’. That’s also level up but in terms of facilities management. Spirit Hosting & Promotions, Vermaat Groep, ENGIE, CSU, Securitas and AVEX are the coalition partners alongside ABN AMRO.
Circl can be found near ABN AMRO’s head office, at Gustav Mahlerplein on the so-called Zuidas. The function of the pavilion, initially intended for meetings and conferences by the bank, has evolved over the years. According to the website, ‘It’s a meeting place for start-ups and educational institutions, for local residents and settled businesses, for local governments and citizens, for NGOs and organisations.’ And also: ‘You can come to Circl to work, wine and dine, meet other people or attend a lecture. Circl is freely accessible – because anyone can make a difference. Connectivity is the key, that’s where anything of value starts.’
