Heijmans Non-residential Building and Heijmans' subsidiary Burgers Ergon Technical Services will jointly realize the construction of the new buildings for the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee at Schiphol. This involves an office building and quarters for accommodating Marechaussee personnel on duty. The contract was signed by the Dienst Vastgoed Defensie (Ministry of Defence, Property Service) and Heijmans on Thursday 26 November. The overall contract is valued at approximately 45 million.
The contract consists of the realisation of 13,800 m² GFA of office building space and 12,700 m² GFA of space for personnel quarters. The project is part of the overall development of the station at Schiphol. The exceptional design of these buildings was produced by the Berlin architect Zvi Hecker.
Several Heijmans business units are involved in this project. Aside from Heijmans Non-residential Building and Burgers Ergon, the Heijmans subsidiary Bestcon is also involved in this project for the supply of prefab architectonic elements. The involvement of these Heijmans business units in this project serves as a clear example of the 'integral approach' Heijmans can offer its customers.
The first on site construction activities will start in February 2010. Plans call for the project to be completed in the first quarter of 2012.
