From the largest sea lock in the world to an eight-kilometre-long flood relief channel to tame the River IJssel, VolkerWessels designs, builds and maintains civil engineering structures in the infrastructure, energy and real estate markets. From engineering structures such as viaducts, bridges and tunnels, to hydraulic works including locks, weirs and flood defences, our knowledge and expertise in concrete construction and hydraulic engineering is recognisable in many structures.
One of our strengths is integrated project management and taking everything out of our clients’ hands from the initial rough sketch to the final building block. It all starts with a plan that takes on board the client’s wish list. We use our technical creativity to look for innovative technologies and smart solutions. We use modern software such as BIM to manage the process and communicate with our construction partners and other stakeholders.
