Royal HaskoningDHV was commisioned to provided a full-service approach for the construction of a new office space in the existing office building “de Zwei” Europoort site. The new office area would facilitate “an alternative way of working” – an interesting, stimulating and creative environment that facilitates teamwork and teambuilding.






RHDHV developed a complete plan for the interior ranging from an aesthetic quality plan to engineering drawings ready for construction. In a very short time, RHDHV was able to provide multiple design options to the client, ING Bank, and to facilitate an efficient decision making process on all levels.


Although, intially, the aim was to provide a Lean design process where the program of requirements was fixed, unforeseen changes required flexibility and quick adjustment to the design. Our approach was thus adapted to adequately anticipate changes and alter our design with full commitment of the stakeholders.


Due to our flexible way of working, we were able to complete the project in six months from concept to engineering phase within the estimated consultancy and design fees.
