Inbo Engineering was involved as supervising project architect for the construction of the Van der Valk Hotel and Cinema in Hoorn. The development was designed by Inbo Drachten and includes a hotel with 149 rooms, a bar, a restaurant and 10 conference rooms. The cinema has 5 screens, each with a minimum auditorium seating capacity of 125, and commercial spaces on the ground floor.
Both Inbo and the structural engineer working out the project in Revit 3D. The model allowed the client cum contractor (BAM Vastgoed / BAM U-bouw) to observe the project development in 3D, enabling them to calculate the construction quantities and costs for determining the budget. Everyone involved with the project was enthusiastic about the process and recognised the added value of working with BIM.
