The Frederik Hendrik Barracks are a former military barracks and listed building. The municipality has drawn up an area vision for the development of the public space, based on a circular ambition. The total development of the area will involve investment of around 80 million euro of public funds and 80 million euro of private funds.
The project is aimed at the sustainability of the barracks site by lowering power and water consumption, reducing the use of materials and toxic substances and generating a positive impact on biodiversity with a view to creating a healthy living climate in and around the buildings.
The Municipality of Venlo has drawn up a vision for the area including the circular cradle-to-cradle ambition. A value proposition was developed to the tune of 6 million euro aimed at cost savings and the smart use of materials.
