ABN AMRO Headquarters

ABN AMRO knocked on Nitesco's door in 2009 with a request to bring the natural stone finishes of its headquarters in line with the bank's professional, powerful and reliable character.

During the zero-job, we treated all natural stone interior finishes restoratively and cosmetically. In doing so, we optimised the appearance, durability, safety, and ease of use of the natural stone.

Since then, we have been responsible for the total maintenance of the natural stone interior finishes of various locations of the bank. Nitesco provides several permanent services in the buildings Gustav Mahlerlaan (Amsterdam headquarters), Foppingadreef (Amsterdam), IJsseltoren (Zwolle), Koningskade (The Hague) and Coolsingel (Rotterdam).

Furthermore, in 2012, Nitesco supplied and installed natural stone floors and stairs as part of a large-scale renovation of the head office on Gustav Mahlerlaan. The focus here was on renovating existing material, using new best-match natural stone to be supplied sustainably and avoiding unnecessary replacement. In 2019, we also gave the head office’s natural stone cladding a major overhaul.

With our sustainable services, whose effectiveness has been proven by TNO, we contribute to ABN AMRO’s integrated long-term sustainability strategy.

ABN AMRO’s prestigious head office is an imposing design that conveys the identity of one of the world’s leading banks. The office was recognised with several international awards for its sustainable design and use of natural stone: from AIA Top Ten Green Project to Building Stone’s Tucker Award and BREEAM’s award for the most sustainable active office building. The complex consists of around 126,000 m2 of superstructure and houses around five thousand professionals.

“It was fascinating and educational to drive this interesting project from start to finish. From advising during construction and visiting the quarries for quality control, to monitoring and sustainably maintaining the fantastic final product.” – Richard Baas | Key Accounts | Nitesco
