Fugro’s civil engineering consultancy supports large scale developments in Amsterdam

Fugro has entered a partnership agreement to provide civil engineering support in the City of Amsterdam.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands

Together with engineering consultancy firm Sweco, Fugro will support development in three locations in the eastern part of Amsterdam, helping to take the municipality a step closer to achieving its home-building target.

With preparations already underway, the partnership agreement runs until April 2021 with an option for four one-year extensions. The City of Amsterdam estimates the contract value at EUR1 million per year.

With the goal of building at least 50,000 new homes in the city between 2015 and 2025, Amsterdam has set itself a huge challenge. Fugro and Sweco are providing support in three very different locations: IJburg 2 which is being developed on newly created artificial land, Overamstel which is a former inner-city industrial estate and Zeeburgereiland which is a site with industrial heritage.

“We want to make optimal use of the market knowledge to tackle this large-scale challenge as innovatively and successfully as possible,” explained Tjeerd Roozendaal, Director of the Engineering Office at the City of Amsterdam. “We were looking for a partner who, in addition to providing civil engineering support, would join us in developing knowledge related to things like systems engineering, BIM and system-oriented contract management. Fugro’s approach and vision were excellently aligned with our needs.”

Peter Nelemans, Director of Fugro, added, “As the world’s leading provider of geo-intelligence we can combine our knowledge of the area, and our experience of working in the Amsterdam region, with the innovative international developments within Fugro. We are well placed to make an optimal contribution to this project.”
