Building & infrastructure

This is our time to work on sustainable construction and digital infrastructure. Therefore, we’re innovating to build energy-neutral buildings with circular building materials, without compromising their safety, comfort, quality, and affordability. We’re also measuring and modelling to check the condition, vulnerability, and residual life of structures.

We carry out the same analyses for our infrastructure – from wind turbines to bridges, and from locks to platforms at sea. We, for example, used the latest technologies to develop a digital replica of a bridge deck of the Van Brienenoord Bridge. Eventually, this predictive twin will be used for the analyses that will form the basis of its proactive management and maintenance.
