In 2020, Wim Beelen sold the Beelen.nl he founded, a sustainable contractor in the demolition sector, recycler of construction and demolition waste streams and processor of industrial waste. He changed course and started Larendael. The development of the sustainable last mile concept, the first multi-storey xxl logistics city hub, in Amsterdam brought him back to the water. A place where he also likes to spend his free time, because water makes the world much bigger. At Larendael he wants to stimulate and use the open-mindedness of the young generation. In addition, he wants to be primarily occupied with things that give him energy. Building projects from the ground up and making something beautiful and unique out of them.
