39 years Snijders Ingenieursgroep

On the 39th anniversary of Snijders Ingenieursgroep we look back at the past. A past in which Leo Snijders started Snijders Ingenieursgroep from his attic on 01/11/1979. A past with lows, of which the crisis in the construction has been very hard. But mostly a past with many highlights. Highlights that have led to a strong and professional engineeringteam, good customers and partners and a portfolio with beautiful and unique projects after 39 years.

We are also looking at the present. A present in which we are located in a beautiful new location in Veldhoven. Looking at a present in which we also, very symbolically on 01/11/2018, opened a new office in Valencia, Spain, where 5 new and enthousiastic colleagues started working for Snijders Engineering Group. As Revit modelers they are now following a training from our Revit specialist and projectleader Raymond. To all our new colleagues in Valencia: a warm welcome to our team and the best of luck with this new challenge!

And so we are also looking at the future. A future in which Snijders Ingenieursgroep and Snijders Engineering Group want to belong to the best engineering offices in Europe and to make beautiful and unique projects within our core business: engineering and modeling precast concrete constructions.

For this we would like to expand our teams in Veldhoven and Valencia, so check out our vacancies and come join our team!

Snijders Ingenieursgroep goes on an adventure in Spain!

After a thorough market research and the necessary preparations we have decided to open a business establishment of Snijders Ingenieursgroep in Spain. The beautiful Valencia will be the location of this business establishment where 5 Revit modelers will start working from november. And from january we will add Tekla modelers and engineers as new members of the Spanish team.

We have chosen a state of the art building of Regus. It is best situated relative to 3 important business districts in Valencia, nearby the port and opposite the Estadio Mastalla of Valencia FC!

An extensive selection took place amongst a lot of enthusiastic candidates. Therefrom we have chosen 5 talented and motivated Revit modelers en engineers who will be working under the name Snijders Engineering Group. We are also expecting a lot of interest in the vacancy of Tekla modeler for which we will be starting the selection procedure in short term.

At the start in november a Revit specialist and projectleader from Snijders Ingenieursgroep in The Netherlands will be giving a training for our new Spanish colleagues. After the training the Spanish team will be committed to support their Dutch colleagues in current Dutch projects. Thereafter they will discover the Spanish market to start new projects.

Valencia belongs to the top four business cities in Spain and we are convinced that our Spanish colleagues of Snijders Engineering Group will make a resounding success of our core business: engineering and modeling precast concrete constructions!

We are very proud of and enthusiastic about this big step in the development of Snijders Ingenieursgroep!

International open BIM award 2018 won by Pontsteiger!

The unique residential building Pontsteiger at the Amsterdam Houthaven is the winner of the international BuildingSMART Award 2018 in the category ‘construction’. This was announced during the ‘International Standards Summit’ in Tokyo.

Building combination Pontsteiger, consisting of Dura Vermeer, De Nijs and involved partners has realised the project fully according to open BIM standards. The open BIM ideas have been the thread running through the project from the development to the building process at which working together in a structured and unambiguously can lead to the increase of the integrality of the different parts, speeding up the alignment, facilitating in prefabrication and the increase of quality and safety during the building process.

One of the involved partners of Building combination Pontsteiger is Hoco Beton. They have delivered approximately 6500 m3 precast concrete in the form of stability walls, columns, balconies, roofing sheets, consoles or staircases. Hoco Beton has instructed Snijders Ingenieursgroep to engineer the precast concrete core- elevator and staircase walls. As one of the pioneers in 3D modeling Snijders Ingenieursgroep has taken this instruction and worked it out according to the open BIM ideas. With this Snijders Ingenieursgroep has made a good contribution to the unique project Pontsteiger, the rightfull winner of  the international BuildingSMART Award 2018.

BuildingSMART is an international non-profit organisation which develops open BIM-standards and stimulates the use of those standards. BuildingSMART International organizes an annual Award program. In this program a jury looks at how effective and innovative the open BIM-standards are applied in projects and how challenges can be overcome in the digital collaboration. BuildingSmart had difficulty looking at all the contributions this year and chosing a winner – there have never been so many contributions as this year.

This award is a confirmation that working in accordance with open BIM standards can lead to beautiful and unique results. Snijders Ingenieursgroep is proud of the contribution we have delivered to Pontsteiger!

New name, new branding

From this moment on Adviesburo Snijders has changed it’s name to Snijders Ingenieursgroep. In an earlier post you have been able to read about our move from Valkenswaard to a magnificent new location in Veldhoven. We wanted a complete renewal in style so we also changed our logo and the website (snijders-ig.nl).

If any parts of the website aren’t functioning or do not meet up to your expactations, please let us know. You can send an e-mail to secretariaat@snijders-ig.nl

Our location in Valkenswaard became to small. Our team of specialists keeps on growing so we were in need of a new and bigger location. We are very proud of our new office in Veldhoven.

New website!

Earlier we announced our move to this magnificent office in Veldhoven. Besides a renewed fysical presentation of our company, we also searched for a partner to provide us with a new presentation online. You can go to the homepage here to browse through the pages of the website. Are there things you did not expect or wished for? We appreciate your feedback! You can e-mail Mariko via mvj@snijders-ig.nl.

Our website was in desperate need of renewal. People can now find Snijders Ingenieursgroep online and our online business card reads well on every device!
