At Jansen Paprika in Andijk, an expansion of the employee hotel has been realized. The residential studios were installed at the end of last month. Last December, the foundation for this had already been poured.
A total of thirty modules, called 'blocks' by Marc Govers of Blueblox, which supplies the residential studios, were placed on 23 and 24 February.
The building complies with the Nearly Energy Neutral Buildings (BENG) standard, and for this purpose, it is equipped, among other things, with an extensive heat recovery system that also takes care of the ventilation balance. The insulation is adapted to the building code.
After installing a sandwich panel against the facades, the appearance of the units is identical to the first employee hotel already on site at the growers' premises.
A total of 32 single rooms and 16 double rooms divided into 16 studios are available. However, due to municipal policy, only 60 places can be occupied in this case, Marc shares in his post on LinkedIn. Even with 64 residents, however, the buildings would be well above the SNF standard, he stresses.
Another large pepper grower, 4Evergreen, also recently invested in housing, both on-site in Steenbergen and Hoek van Holland.
