Whether you are travelling through the Netherlands by car, boat, bicycle or train, it is almost impossible to ignore what VolkerWessels' does. Motorways and railways with viaducts, bridges and tunnels, waterways with sluices and weirs: at VolkerWessels we not only build them, we design them too. We have the in-house engineering capability as well as the expertise, resources and experience needed to guarantee mobility. VolkerWessels is innovative, enterprising and future-oriented.
From roads and engineering structures to tunnels and locks and from foundations and auxiliary structures to excavation pits and formwork: VolkerWessels has the people and the resources to design all of these structures. In addition we provide the engineering for cables, pipelines and (horizontal directional) drilling. From sketch to detailed design, often including multiple disciplines and always utilising the latest technology and tools, such as 3D engineering, virtual construction and BIM.
Liveability and accessibility of the urban environment; keeping waterways, railways and motorways flowing; safety on bridges, at locks and in tunnels: VolkerWessels has the right product, service or measure to tackle all of these social challenges. Examples include traffic systems, alerts, traffic barriers, signals, security systems, traffic control systems, parking systems and smart ICT solutions. VolkerWessels keeps things moving.
