Festive opening Van Oord office

Festive opening Van Oord office

The 1st of July 2015 was a festive day at the head office of Van Oord in Rotterdam. On a sunny morning employees, their families and the building team together celebrated the opening of the new office wing of the Van Oord headquarters. The official act was performed by Mr. Koos van Oord sr. The head office is beautifully situated on the North side of the Maas river and offers a spectacular view, a panorama from the Brienenoord bridge, over the rough waters of the Maas, towards the skyline of the centre of Rotterdam.

The new wing is the ‘symbol of growth’, as said CEO Pieter van Oord in his speech. “We are proud to see my dad opening the office. This accentuates the special connection between our family and the company”. 

Inbo made the interior design for the new construction, as well as for the existing head office that was opened in 2012 by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Willem Alexander. By the nautical atmosphere the building breathes the works, history and pride of the company. Therefore the three meeting rooms in the new wing are named Sliedrecht, Werkendam and Utrecht, each one of them an important location in the history of Van Oord.
