King reopens main building of Provinciehuis Zuid- Holland


His Majesty the King will reopen the renovated main building of the Provinciehuis Zuid-Holland in The Hague on Wednesday afternoon, September 14th. The starting points for the renovation were circularity, sustainability, innovation and transparency. The main building is now energy neutral. Use has been made of innovative sustainability techniques and materials such as triple glazing, sustainable roof construction, energy storage in the soil, facade insulation and solar panels. Cooling and heating can be kept to a minimum. The building is designed in such a way that it can be flexibly adapted to future technological developments and needs. Sustainability and CO2 reduction are the norm for future maintenance.

Furthermore, as much use as possible has been made of circular materials in order to avoid waste and various elements from the history of the main building have been reinstated, including the doors to the State Room. This meeting room of the Provincial Council is now located on the side of the Malieveld. A large glass facade connects the hall with its surroundings.

After the opening ceremony, the King was given a guided tour with an explanation of the renovation and the way in which the province is working with inhabitants and partners on social issues such as energy transition, housing and climate adaptation. Afterwards, the King will speak with a number of employees of the province and project managers who were involved in the renovation.
