Amsterdam, technically challenging
The municipality of Amsterdam owns the layout and infrastructure of the city. Every year, the municipality invests half a billion euros in maintenance, renovation and new construction. Examples? Two bridges over the IJ, the Zuidasdok, completion of the Noord / Zuidlijn, major area developments such as Houthavens, Amstelkwartier, Overhoeks and IJburg II. We are working on infrastructure for electric driving, an energy-neutral neighborhood and making Amsterdam climate-proof. The replacement of 200 km of historic quay walls, hundreds of bridges and ten large (bicycle) parking garages.
Our passion lies in the complexity of urban areas. Professional expertise, reliability and knowledge of the city of Amsterdam are our strength. We have expertise in civil constructions, water delta technology, urban design, the environment, infrastructure, traffic advice, project and contract management. We advise and guide projects from idea to implementation, with a mix of technical and social complexity. The replacement of 30 meters of quay wall requires more innovation than the replacement of 20,000 m2 of asphalt paving. The realization of a three-layer parking garage under a canal in Amsterdam is perhaps more complex than an aqueduct in the N201.
The engineering firm (750 employees) has all the expertise in-house. Concrete and steel constructor, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, geotechnicians, (geo) hydrologists, traffic engineers, hydraulic engineers, water managers, ecologists, (technical) business experts, cost experts, etc. The Engineering Bureau has a flat, open informal organization and a result-oriented culture. Projects and knowledge are central. In our working methods, new contract forms, Best Value Procurement, Systems Engineering, BIM, big data and smart city receive plenty of attention.
