2022, a new year! This is also a new beginning for us. In January, eight new colleagues joined our team in Valencia. It concerns two structural engineers, two Revit modelers and four Tekla modelers. We are pleased with the expansion of our team and look forward to working with them on beautiful projects in the future! To all new colleagues, a warm welcome to Snijders Engineering Group and good luck with this new challenge!
Snijders Ingenieursgroep and Bouwkenners.nl have sponsored the eighth edition of the Biesbosch Open Water Race and the Open Dutch Championship 2021. You could easily recognise our flags at the finish line! More than 80 volunteers, 32 sponsors, 380 race starters, 80 performance swimmers for “ALS het je raakt” made this event possible. The weekend was full of surprises. The championship prizes were handed out by the Federal Coach Open Water Swimming Thijs Hagelstein, the “Brabants Buske” came by to make a live report on Omroep Brabant and with the achievement tour they managed to raise 2000 euros for ALS het je raakt! It was a pleasure for us to contribute to this event, which also supports the ALS charity.
It is already 25 years ago that Michel started working at Snijders Ingenieursgroep as a modeller. Over the years, he has developed into a project manager. In good and bad times, Michel is always there for Snijders Engineering Group and is a appreciated colleague!
We celebrated this unique anniversary in a small group because of the current Corona measures. Together with his wife, daughter, mother and all his colleagues from Snijders Ingenieursgroep, we had a nice and pleasant party.
Michel congratulations and on to the next anniversary!
Snijders Ingenieursgroep organized a quiz for all its engineers.
The construction faults had to be discovered with the help of various photos.
A very educational exercise that tested the knowledge, experience and creativity of the engineers. After an intense “quiz battle”, an expert jury, chaired by Sebastiaan, selected the winners in the various categories.
Both colleagues from Valencia and Veldhoven have won prizes. Congratulations gentlemen and have fun with your prizes!
Below on the photo Thijs. The winner in the “sustainability” category.
To keep up the spirits and reward everyone’s hard work, we had a delicious Mexican lunch with Mariachi music prepared in Valencia and in Veldhoven.
Our office in Valencia enjoyed several individual dishes and in Veldhoven there was a food truck with delicious different types of tacos.
Fortunately, we now see that the number of coronas infected is going in the right direction. The government has started to ‘relax’ the measures. We will have to hold on together, but the end is in sight.
The lunch ensured that we were able to relax and eat with our colleagues in a responsible manner.

It has been over a year since the Corona crisis hit us as a country. Something that was quite manageable at the beginning of last year, but which is becoming more and more difficult. The Netherlands is ‘Corona tired’, but we have to hold on.
Despite the crisis, our company is doing well and we are very proud of our employees! To reward their efforts, a food truck was “driven in” to have lunch in the afternoon. The employees could choose from delicious food including various wraps, pulled pork sandwiches and fries.
Unfortunately, no team events can take place for the time being. The food truck ensured that we had a delicious meal in a safe and responsible manner!
A new year full of oppurtunities and challenges.
This year has started well for Snijders Ingenieursgroep. And again we can work on new and challenging projects. Below is an overview of projects on which we have started with the engineering of the prefab concrete elements.
Fibonacci te Amsterdam
In Amsterdam East, the preparations have started for the construction of the residential tower “Fibonacci”. This residential tower, with partly 18, 9 and 5 building layers, containing a total of 243 apartments. The residential building has roof gardens, meeting rooms, bicycle parking and compact parking facilities.

The sensational tower with 132 homes, consisting of apartments and penthouses ranging from 50m2 to more than 130m2 and it will be located in the most beautiful spot on the Petroleumhaven in The Hague. There is either an unobstructed view of the sea or of the inner city skyline.
Het Bosbad te Eindhoven
Bosbad will be realized in the Meerhoven district as part of Bosrijk. Sustainability, spatial quality and high-profile architecture are central here. Living in Bosrijk is special, all projects in this part of the neighborhood are designed as “sculptures in a sculpture garden”, whereby the houses are fitted into the existing landscape as sculptures. The green space around the houses are in fact the garden of the residents.

Large townhouses and a small-scale apartment complex are being built on fields 2.2 and 2.4 in Nieuw Delft. These fields are close to the old town and the train station. A unique location in Delft on the Westvest and “De Kolk.

In addition to 2- and 3-room rental apartments, there will also be a bicycle parking, office spaces on the ground floor and an underground parking garage. The area is easily accessible by public transport and is within walking distance of the Schalkwijk shopping center, which will be extensively renovated in the coming years into a modern and attractive city district center.
On the first of november 2020 Snijders has celebrated the milestone of 41 years existence of the company. The 40 years milestone of Snijders has been celebrated with a visit to Valencia.
This year we don’t celebrate the milestone, but we enjoy the typical “Brabants worstenbroodje” in good health.
