Dag van de Bouw 8 juni 2024

On Saturday, June 8, we celebrated the Day of Construction again with a visit to two beautiful projects in Eindhoven: De Caai and Nieuwe Bergen. These construction sites, on which our team worked hard, gave us an impressive and instructive insight into the construction of the buildings under construction. It was inspiring to see the results of our work up close. After the tours, we enjoyed a nice lunch, which made for a perfect end to the morning. It was an instructive day full of valuable new insights. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

The “Nieuwbouw Heinekenhoek Leidseplein te Amsterdam” project is a testament to the power of collaboration and expertise. This venture, engineered by Snijders Ingenieurs Groep and produced by Byldis, has been a testament to commitment to excellence and innovation in the world of engineering.

Farewell Curro Verhagen

In 1998, Curro Verhagen joined the Snijders Ingenieursgroep as an external business consultant, with the aim of mapping out and streamlining our processes. What started as an external consultant ended up as a director after having been a member of the Management Team for a number of years.

In 2009 he took over from the management at that time, and became CEO. Despite setbacks, but with a clear vision, Snijders Ingenieursgroep, under Curro’s leadership, consolidated and has grown into an international organization with offices in the Netherlands, Spain and Uruguay.

Now, after 25 years, the time has come for a well-deserved retirement!

Needless to say, a 25th anniversary and retirement is cause for celebration. Preparations have been made in the deepest secrecy to complete the surprise for Curro. Completely surprised, he arrived at De Mispelhoef together with his wife and children. After various speeches, with amusing anecdotes and photos about the past years, a pleasant evening with music, snacks and drinks could be enjoyed.

Now that Curro is about to enjoy his retirement, his colleagues wish him a well-earned rest and all the best for the future.
Curro is succeeded by Willem Rooijakkers, Michel Ramakers and Raymond de Jager. With a solid foundation and promising leadership, Snijders Ingenieursgroep is ready for the future!

From this strategic hub, we work on exciting challenges and take on new projects, expanding our reach and impact.

SIG contribution to Ibis Styles hotel Rotterdam

The latest edition of Industriebouw has just been published, with a lot of attention for the Ibis Styles Hotel in Rotterdam. Snijders Ingenieurs Groep (SIG) is also represented in this edition with a nice contribution from Willem Rooijakkers, a member of the board of SIG. In the interview, he explains how SIG played a double role in the realization of the new ibis Styles hotel. As the main structural engineer, SIG calculated the main supporting structure on behalf of BOBgroep and for Stabiel Management, it provided the engineering of all prefab concrete and steelwork. The main bearing structure is the backbone of any building, and SIG’s contribution in this area was instrumental in creating a solid foundation for the hotel.

Dag van de Bouw (Construction Day)

Last weekend, June 17, we had an outing on the occasion of ‘Dag van de Bouw’ (Construction Day). We had the opportunity to visit two projects in Eindhoven that we are working on ourselves. These projects are Eurostaete and Groot Hartje, located next to the Philips Stadium at Strijp S. After the visits we enjoyed a joint lunch at the bustling Strijp S.

 

Walking through the construction sites was inspiring and very informative. We even hopped on the construction elevator and ascended to the 9th floor, where we had the opportunity to explore one of the apartments that will soon be occupied. It’s incredible to witness the progress firsthand and see how our hard work is shaping these impressive buildings. After the visits, we all had a nice lunch together.

 

Hats off to Stam + De Koning Bouw (a VolkerWessels company) for organizing the day so well. They made sure we had a fantastic time and gained valuable insights into the construction process.
