In 1904, this building housed a plant producing carburetted water gas. The Amsterdam energy company later used it as a transformer workshop.
Making the factory buildings more sustainable is more complicated than with newer buildings as the possibilities are more limited and costly thanks to the buildings’ listed status. In the Transformatorhuis, investments have been made in LED lighting. The switch to LED light has resulted in a 65% reduction in electricity use. Gas consumption fell by 28% thanks to roof and window insulation.
