Sustainable offices for Fortis Bank

The Context
Futureproofed gave Fortis Bank an enthusiastic and warming lecture. It inspired them into asking us to do a scan on over 2000 bank offices throughout Belgium, in order to make them more sustainable.

The Challenge
Making more than 2000 offices throughout the country more sustainable … where do you start?

The Trajectory

  • The facts. Futureproofed conducted 3 audits on 3 regional bank offices. This mapped out possible measures to endorse.
  • The figures. From this knowledge, we generated a financial matrix called ‘the renovation toolbox’, specifying the ROI on different design solutions proposals. 

Results and Resolutions
Using these guidelines and toolbox, Fortis can make general recommendations for all their offices. For example using systematically double-glazing windows instead of single glazing.

And what have we learned for your benefit? How to handle a very technical matter that requires a totally different kind of consultancy.
