Smart and sustainable building management with data-driven technology
Every day, 5,500 visitors enjoy the fantastic collection in the Van Gogh Museum. As the proud manager, we ensure a pleasant environment plus optimal climate settings to keep the valuable works in top condition. We do so sustainably with data-driven technology.
Rijksvastgoedbedrijf (the Central Government Real Estate Agency), Van Gogh Museum and Strukton Worksphere signed a ten-year contract for electrical, mechanical engineering and architectural maintenance. The contract imposes high demands with respect to comfort, uninterrupted operations, health and sustainability. In 2017, the project won the jury and public prize at the InfraTech exhibition for 'Best partnership project in construction'.
Working together to ensure a perfectly functioning and sustainable building
How do you achieve optimal performance in a technically complex environment with existing installations and systems?
Making the museum more sustainable
We are happy to contribute ideas about making the museum more sustainable. To do this, we can use Strukton PULSE, for instance. Sensors measure the condition of the installations 24/7, so that we can give specific advice about maintenance and replacement. PULSE also provides insight into setting improvements. With the tiniest adjustments, we can achieve great improvements in energy consumption. We can cope with the seasonal fluctuations in climate, but changes need to be gradual. Due to the extreme sensitivity of the artworks, temperature changes may be a mere tenth of a degree or half a percent more or less humidity.
Strukton Worksphere constantly seeks an optimal balance between guaranteeing performance, replacing installations and maintaining them. This results in an optimal maintenance strategy. Our approach is always based on the entire lifecycle. This way performance contracts result in a smart balance between thorough maintenance and well-timed replacement.
