Mexican lunch for all Snijders colleagues!

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.

Corona proof dining!

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

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.

De Hoge Vrijheid te Den Haag
Hoge Vrijheid is a unique project in the Netherlands where, for the first time, it is possible to compose facade and living area yourself in a residential building of 70 meters high. 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.

Nieuw Delft veld 2.2 en 2.4 te Delft
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.

131 Appartementen Silva te Haarlem
131 rental homes are being built in the new development area Schalkwijk-middle. 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.

Visit Stedelijk College Eindhoven

On the 21st of September a few engineers from Snijders Ingenieursgroep had a guided tour at the project “Stedelijk College” in Eindhoven. Snijders Ingenieursgroep is responsible for the engineering of the prefab concrete frame with detailing. Our colleagues had a fun and educational day where they saw their designs realized.

Valencia, tapas and a T-Ford: Snijders exists 40 years!

On the first of november 2019 Snijders has celebrated the milestone of 40 years existence of the company. In 1979 Adviesburo voor Bouwkonstrukties Ing. L. Snijders was established by Leo Snijders from his attic. Now, 40 years later, it has grown into an engineering office specialised in engineering (mainly) precast concrete constructions. A team of 60 engineers divided over locations Veldhoven (NL) and Valencia (ES) work daily on challenging projects in the Netherlands and Europe.

The 40 years milestone of Snijders has been celebrated with a visit to Valencia in september, a reception with tapas in the office in Veldhoven with a speciale surprise… A T-Ford car with the Snijders name and logo hand painted!

The T-Ford is a symbol for the thinking and acting according to the T-model, one of the most important starting points in the process management of Snijders Ingenieursgroep. The letter T is also the foundation of the Snijders motto: QualiTy, on Time, within the set Time!

Check out the T-Ford in this video.

On to the next anniversary!

Trimble visits Snijders Ingenieursgroep during the annual precast study trip

In  the past 7 years Tekla’s developer Trimble has organised an annual Precast Study Trip with the purpose for companies in the precast industry worldwide to get acquainted with leading companies in the European precast industry.

This year Norway, Belgium and The Netherlands were the destinations. In these countries leading precast companies were asked to host a meeting. Construsoft, Trimbles partner in The Netherlands for facilitating and supporting Tekla, has asked Snijders Ingenieursgroep to give a presentation to 30 participants from 7 different countries.

Curro Verhagen gave an introduction about Snijders Ingenieursgroep (Veldhoven) and Snijders Engineering Group (Valencia) after which Hein Moors showed how Snijders works with Tekla: how do we model in Tekla and how detailed are the projects being worked out. To illustrate this, the beautiful project Good Luck Hope was presented, which Snijders Ingenieursgroep is modeling in Tekla commissioned by Byldis. For the participants a striking example because after the presentation a visit to the Byldis factory was planned.

It was an educational morning, thanks to Trimble, Construsoft and all the participants. A good confirmation that Snijders Ingenieursgroep belongs to the top leaders in the precast industry!
