Heerema/Zwijndrecht

One of the first companies in Europe to produce offshore platforms.

Heerema in Zwijndrecht is one of the first companies in Europe to produce offshore platforms. Ladies and gentlemen who therefore know what it's like to work with steel.

We used this knowledge when Heerema asked us to design and set up their new innovation lab. There was considerable time pressure on this project and the client wanted a lot for relatively little, which is why we had to be clear from the start: their wishes were simply impossible to realise within the set deadline. We wouldn't say it if we didn't mean it. A risk of course. Because this is one way to get rid of a great client.

Fortunately, Heerema followed our advice. In fact, we put our heads together to try and make sure that their wishes could be met within the budget. Heerema's expertise came in handy here. "If you can weld a drilling platform, then a kitchen shouldn't be a problem", we explained to the company. No sooner said than done. The employees welded and set the steel bar, kitchen and work spaces themselves. Our collaboration was perhaps best reflected in the conference table: we supplied the sheets and the Heerema employees welded the frame that was suspended from pulleys, making it a height-adjustable desk, themselves. In short: a lot of birds with one stone, and especially for an innovation lab at Heerema, a great opportunity for them to show what they can do.

Main wishes

  • Completion within a very tight deadline
  • Applying innovation to the design elements
  • Make budget neutral
  • Collaborating in product development and creation
  • Spaces must be easy to alter for other purposes

The result

An innovation lab with many steel elements made by the client themselves.

In short

Familiarisation

  • We mostly want to know why new accommodation, refurbishment or transformation of the office is necessary, and what the benefits have to be for the people, the company and the customers.

Concept

  • The first image formation gives an impression of a new interior, the office design, working methods and the atmosphere.

Design

  • If you are pleasantly surprised, we will refine the design: we'll align colours and materials, and develop technical drawings and interior design.

Execution

  • We supervise construction and interior design, so that we can commission the project in a usable form. We work hard to always honour our agreements.
