Construction agency Space S

Construction agency Space S

Space S, a housing project on Strijp S in Eindhoven with over 400 social rent houses for Stichting Woonbedrijf SWS HhvL, has been an absolute co-creation process from the beginning. De design was made in collaboration with hundreds of future residents in a highly interactive process.

The wish to cooperate in another way, as co-creators, is continued in the building preparation phase. Inbo and contractor Stam + De Koning Bouw bv teamed up in the ‘construction agency’ Space S. Instead of a traditional process, in which we produce the construction drawings and the contractor adds his specific knowledge during project preparations, we now collaborate from the beginning.

The Reviteers of Inbo and Stam + De Koning together work on the total construction- and project preparation in a Building Information Model (BIM). They literally work together shoulder to shoulder, on site. Hereby we all benefit from a better coordination, increasing confidence in each other’s work, making less mistakes and thus a more efficient and effective process. Our cooperation works out so well, that we now also together apply the same working method to other projects.

Construction of Space S has started at the end of May.The first houses will be completed around November 2016.
