It’s a fitting name, as it will house both Martinair and who, each year, jointly transport millions of passengers and many tons of cargo. The Dutch Green Building Council has awarded the first BREEAM-NL certificate to Schiphol Real Estate, the developer of the building, for the sustainable construction of the TransPort office building. As such, Schiphol Real Estate is the first developer and investor in the Netherlands to have constructed an office building in compliance with the new Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM-NL) for newly constructed buildings.

TransPort was rated “very good.” The TransPort office building was also developed in compliance with the Platinum level of the internationally renowned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED
