Zuidhorn, Woonzorgcentrum

For project developer Wold & Waard Woonservice we developed a renewable energy concept. We have made the energy concept feasible for the company to set up its own separate energy company for the project. ZON Energie groep played a key role as architects of the sustainable energy installations and as an advisor to the developer and installation company.


The project consists of 142 group housing units, 165 individual housing units, a doctor’s post, pharmacy and offices of Zorggroep Westerkwartier – a company specialized in home-care services. In the complex there are 64 apartments for caregivers and 22 studios for people with intellectual limitations. Some 80% of the heating of the complex comes from the geothermal sources and 50% of the warm water is supplied through solar collectors.
