Building in The Hague’s International Zone
Eurojust combats serious cross-border crime and organized crime within the member states of the EU. The expansion of tasks and personnel in the Netherlands has led to the realization of new housing. The employees of Eurojust now work from two locations. In two years’ time, they will all work under one roof in their building in The Hague’s World Forum area.
To ensure safety at the site, Heijmans provides an integrated security process. This varies from specific technical solutions to dunes and water features around the building. The vegetation complements the immediate, green environment of the Zorgvliet district.
Together with TGM, Solico, Norwin, Indupol and DSM, Heijmans is designing a new composites facade which exceeds the prescribed quality standards and saves costs.
Quality above Price
The contract was awarded on the basis of Economically Most Advantageous Tender, with the construction quality being a major contributing factor. By using system engineering (a method for project-based work), requirements are verified structurally to avoid errors and delays afterwards.
Thanks to measures such as just-in-time deliveries, prefabrication and a complaints hotline, noise and logistics nuisance for local residents is reduced as much as possible.
The maintenance period of 15 years (with an option for a 5- year extension) is already cleverly included during the realization. The deployment of a transit manager guarantees knowledge transfer between the realization and maintenance period. This allows an integrated working method to be used optimally.
