Heart of 's Gravenzande

The redevelopment concerns an entirely new shopping centre with approximately 7,600m² of retail facilities on the ground floor. The first floor features a car park offering approximately 300 parking spaces, on top of which 90 flats will be built, divided across five storeys. In addition to the new development, the heritage-listed building with a stepped gable and wall anchors from 1639 on Marktplein 10 will be renovated.

‘A second opinion offered multiple alternatives that led to a commission. One of the most commendable aspects is that the envisioned savings in terms of construction proved to be economical and structurally sound in practice. A fantastic achievement!’

Project information

Direct involvement leads to savings

To better respond to the demands of modern residents and shoppers, the city centre of ‘s-Gravenzande will be completely redeveloped. New shops, flats, catering facilities and new parking facilities will be created in order to keep the centre vibrant.

SWINN became involved in this project when its client, Boele & van Eesteren, sought structural engineering advice for the Engineering & Building process. SWINN prepared the structural aspects of the project based on the existing specifications. It goes without saying that we immediately implemented various optimisations in terms of construction. We expertly scrutinised the building systematics and evaluated the dimensions and use of materials. During this process, several points for improvement came to light. This resulted in an adjusted design, which in turn resulted in considerable cost reductions.

This project shows that bringing in an expert, committed constructor in due time can produce extremely advantageous results. SWINN is always happy to actively contribute its ideas to a project and act as a genuine team player. We are convinced that good collaboration is the driving force behind achieving a good result!
