In addition, at Falco you will find traffic facilities and street and park furniture. Falco designs, develops and produces all products in their own factory. This makes it possible to also produce ‘tailor-made’ for you. Falco BV strives to have as little impact on the working environment and the climate as possible. That is why an energy transition was started over 10 years ago. Machines were replaced by more efficient machines that consume less energy. Also, almost all light bulbs have been replaced by LED lights and there have been investments in 1787 solar panels. Also, Falco uses only FSC wood for its wood-finished products. Falco’s circular manager John Wermink is investigating how we can reduce our Co2 emissions even further. His goal is also to map out how circular our product range already is based on the MKI values and what we can do to provide more circular products and services.

Yalp, as an innovative concept developer in play and sports concepts, and the NVTL have found each other just before the 100th anniversary. The NVTL’s focus on green public spaces is reinforced in the partnership with Yalp with a focus on ‘meaningful outdoor space’.

Through our public space, we have access to all our residents. We can make a positive contribution to several social issues that are at stake. What if that space is not only beautiful, but also focused on development and challenge? On inclusiveness, integration, educational disadvantages, motoric developments or on enabling the elderly to live longer at home? For everyone, at their own level. Because it is fun. The ‘new way to play’!

At Yalp we can learn a lot from the members of the NVTL when it comes to green design. And vice versa, for those interested in our slightly different vision of public space: we are open to visits from NVTL members, through personal contact, and are happy to explain our ‘Why’.


Tjinco is full of original solutions committed to the ideal gathering space. In the district, the neighborhood and the city. Where we work, move and meet. The design of a public space should stimulate people to positive behavior. Tjinco specializes in social furniture with a twist. Our offer is surprising, beautiful and sustainable. The way we live is changing. An attractive meeting place, holding meetings in nature or exercising in the open air are becoming increasingly important. This invites us to create sustainable solutions to stimulate being together and outdoors. We are doing our part by adding appropriate street furniture to the gathering space.


Sustainable trees are indispensable in our cities, they make the city liveable. Unfortunately, the life expectancy of an average urban tree in practice is only ten years, these trees therefore contribute nothing to the urban climate. Mature, functional trees are the most natural solution to reduce the effects of climate change in public spaces.

TreeBuilders operates internationally and specializes in the development, production and project supervision of innovative tree bunkering systems. Our solutions create the ideal growing conditions for trees to age in a healthy way in the city, while providing a solution for sustainable urban water management. By connecting blue, green and grey urban infrastructures, together we create sustainable urban landscapes and future-proof cities!

Our goal is to advise you on all available options and, if applicable, the technical elaboration of the specific option that best suits your project. We are happy to share our knowledge with you, gained from the implementation of now more than 1400 tree bunker systems worldwide!
