In recent years, several iconic circular buildings have been realized. Expectations were high on completion, they would be healthier for the people who work there and would save energy. What has come out of these expectations? Bouwkwaliteit in de Praktijk (Building Quality in Practice) visited the Venlo Municipal Office and the Liander Office in Duiven a few years after the completion and found that both buildings lived up to their expectations. The absenteeism figures at the municipal office were drastically reduced and Liander's office in Duiven is becoming energy-generating.
