The very first hotel in the Netherlands with BREEAM-NL certificate
The hotel at Atlas ArenA Amsterdam is the first hotel in the Netherlands to be awarded a BREEAM-NL New Construction certificate by the Dutch Green Building Council.
BREEAM-NL is well known as a sustainability quality mark in the market for large offices and districts, but never before has the design of a hotel been assessed according to BREEAM-NL standards. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel at Atlas ArenA Amsterdam achieved the sustainability score even though there was no specific quality mark for hotels, making it impossible to score credits for certain aspects of the building.
