ING opens its new office in Amsterdam

Banking

ING today officially opened its new corporate office in Amsterdam. This office is named Cedar and is a central part of Cumulus Park, the recently launched innovation district in the southeast area of Amsterdam. Cedar is one of the five ING office buildings that form Cumulus Park. Next to workspace for ING staff about 20% of the buildings is reserved for collaborative innovation with external parties.

ING joined with the Municipality of Amsterdam, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and the ROC Amsterdam to create Cumulus Park, where academics, companies and innovators inspire each other and work together to investigate solutions to challenges like urbanization and digital identity.

“This new building embodies all we aspire to,” said Ralph Hamers, CEO of ING. “It’s open and transparent, as nearly all walls are made of glass, and it creates an atmosphere that encourages collaboration. The building will play a central role within Cumulus Park, inspiring new ways to innovate. And, with Cedar we reduced the consumption of natural resources as much as possible.’

Sustainability is key for the building. Cedar has been awarded the highest sustainability rating by BREEAM-NL. It was partially built with the concrete from the previous building on the same location. Around 3,000 square meters of solar panels provide energy for the building, while triple glazing and insulated window frames help to save energy. Various sustainable measures save up to 12 million litres of water per year. Single-use plastic is banished from the restaurants and coffee bars.

ING’s new corporate office was developed by EDGE and G&S Vastgoed and constructed by G&S Bouw. It was designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects, while the interior design and the atrium platforms were developed by HofmanDujardin. The landscape architecture was done by Karres en Brands. The construction of the office started in July 2017 when an existing empty office building was demolished. The first employees moved in November 2019. Cedar offers workspace for 2,800 employees spread over 39,000 m2.
