Kenny Slaught Highlights The Edge as Most Sustainable Workplace in the World

The Edge is a building based in Amsterdam that consolidates all the city’s employees working with the leading Big Four consulting firm.

Santa Barbara, CA - June 13, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Kenny Slaught, known for his real estate development in California, often looks outside the country for more sustainable and innovative design strategies. He has found one, called The Edge in Amsterdam, that revolutionizes the workplace environment with completely sustainable practices through-and-through. On his blog at KennySlaught.com, he discusses Europe’s new development – the Edge building that defies the common understanding of architecture and pushes the boundaries of imagination, as businessmen of today strive to enhance smart technologies and sustainability elements in their office space.

The Edge is a building based in Amsterdam that consolidates all the city’s employees working with the leading “Big Four” consulting firm – Deloitte Netherlands. Developed by the Dutch firm OVG, the 40,000m² office building was designed by London-based architects PLP Architecture. The Edge has received the world’s highest BREEAM rating (98.36%) awarded to an office building, which technically makes it the greenest building on the planet. The design is highly sustainable and appointed with an unmatched level of technologically advanced featured that rightfully led to the Edge’s recognition as the most intelligent building ever built to date.

Kenny Slaught argues that the Edge complex is the most practical and complete representation of a modern office space, an example of what the Internet of Things has the power to create and how it should operate. Everything begins right from the way one accesses the Edge. Employees are connected to the structure by using their smartphones. They all use a digital application that tracks everything they do when they work and gives a concrete structure to a typical workday of individuals using the app. From the moment they wake up in the morning, the app begins their day by suggesting a scheduled calendar and upon arrival at work, it communicates with the building to give the employees of the global firm access to their vehicle by recognizing the latter’s license plate.

Outside of the Edge, the mobile application also helps to find a parking space within the inside of the building There are special spots where building tenants can charge their electric cars for free during their workhours. Dedicated parking lots are offered to those who commute to work on bicycles since this is a fairly common practice in the Netherlands. Inside the building, finding a designated office is another easy task for Deloitte employees who then use the app on their mobile phones or other smart gadgets to locate an office station, which may be a different one each day, as nobody at the Edge has a unique office desk attached to one individual only.

Founder of Investec Real Estate Companies, Kenny Slaught has been in the industry for more than four decades. A dedicated investment strategist, he manages more than 3 million square feet of property throughout California. With total transactions valued above $1.2 billion, Investec has grown to become one of Santa Barbara’s leading real estate firms. An avid philanthropist, Mr. Slaught is involved with many non-profit and community organizations, including Hospice of Santa Barbara, the Music Academy of the West. Contributing to the benefit of youth in the area, he dedicates considerable time to these and other worthy causes.

Central African Republic minister says Becker passport fake

Jun 23, 2018

BANGUI, Central African Republic — Central African Republic's foreign minister says a reported diplomatic passport for Boris Becker appears to be a fake and the prosecutor general will investigate. The retired German tennis star claims that his role as Central African Republic's attache to the European Union on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs gives him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in Britain. But the African nation's foreign minister, Charles Armel Doubane, rejected the passport that is said to be Becker's in comments to Radio Ndeke-Luka. Presidential spokesman Albert Yaloké Mokpeme said the head of state had never appointed Becker to...

Springboks and England have much to play for in 3rd test

Jun 23, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — The scent of opportunity will swirl in the damp Newlands breeze on Saturday when South Africa and England step out for the third and final rugby test. With the host team having wrapped up the series 2-0, the collective objectives for an under-fire England are clear: End a five-test losing streak and win its first match in South Africa since 2000. But the real opportunities will exist on an individual level, and apply on both sides. Should England earn its first victory on South African soil in seven attempts, the result will surely have some...

England start Cipriani, Springboks change 4 for sweep bid

Jun 23, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — Flyhalf Danny Cipriani will attempt to spark some life into an ailing England after earning his first test start since 2008 for the third and final test against South Africa at Newlands on Saturday. George Ford has been Eddie Jones' preferred flyhalf, but with the series already lost the England coach threw a lifeline to Cipriani, who made a bright 13-minute appearance off the bench in last week's 23-12 defeat in Bloemfontein. That was his 15th cap, and first in three years. "He sees space. Opportunities are going to be limited at the weekend and...

South African who lost his legs fulfills football dream

Jun 23, 2018

WINDERVELDT, South Africa — Tebogo Mofokeng's legs were amputated when he was a toddler in South Africa, but that didn't stop him from fulfilling his dream of coaching young football players. Mofokeng, 18, is following the World Cup closely, but on Sunday morning he was on a dusty field in Winderveldt, a poor area northwest of the capital, Pretoria. On his prosthetics, he shouted instructions as boys trained in ball control. The coach suffered severe burns when he was just a year old, and his legs had to be amputated. He got his first prosthetic legs when he was 3....

Springboks beat England 23-12 and clinch series

Jun 23, 2018

BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa — South Africa gave a strong indication it has turned a corner after two dark years as it overpowered England 23-12 in the second test to clinch their series with a match to spare on Saturday. The Springboks won just seven of their 13 matches last year, a run that ultimately cost coach Allister Coetzee his job, and were ranked as low as seventh just two weeks ago. But another impressive performance under new coach Rassie Erasmus at Free State Stadium allowed South Africa to rise to third in the World Rugby rankings and notch a sixth...
