Published on 07 September 2023

Veghel, 7 September 2023 – SPIE Nederland, the Dutch subsidiary of SPIE, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications, has been  awarded by VanderLande a five-year contract to make the use of the buildings on the Campus in Veghel climate-friendly. SPIE will organise the management and maintenance policy of the building-related installations and their associated implementation in a smooth and professional way to make this contract a sustainable cooperation.

Sustainable cooperation is more than just maintenance

Vanderlande is a leading global partner for future-proof logistics process automation in the warehousing, airport and parcel sectors. SPIE is responsible for the installations of 16 buildings on the Campus of Vanderlande in Veghel, representing a total area of around 115,000 m². First of all, the building-related installations will be mapped out to see where optimisation is possible. Mapping predictability will significantly improve the availability and reliability of the installations, ensuring VanderLande's business continuity. Measuring energy consumption and implementing energy-saving measures will ensure more environmentally friendly operations.

"In addition, we will create a single integrated facility team, combining all knowledge, expertise and resources. Working together, SPIE’s and VanderLande's teams will realise synergy benefits, streamline processes and improve communication, making work more efficient and resolving any bottlenecks faster," says Rens Polderdijk, Contract Manager at SPIE Nederland.

SPIE and VanderLande use advanced technologies and systems, such as an automated monitoring system that provides real-time information on the performance of the installations. Rens Polderdijk adds: "All these developments contribute to a better understanding of operating costs to make better long-term investment decisions. With this, all signals are green to move towards a more sustainable campus in a smooth and professional way."
