Building smarter with Bouwburo

The changing market, new contract forms and digital techniques led us to the will to work together in a different way. With Stam + De Koning, we will from now on work together from our new joint ‘Bouwburo’ (construction agency). The Bouwburo started to take form during our collaboration for the construction of 400 houses for the project Space-S for housing corporation Woonbedrijf, located at Strijp-S in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. From the temporary office on the building site we worked on the engineering and construction preparation as one joint team with one joint budget.

Arno van Tilburg, director of Stam + De Koning: “The collaboration between us during the building preparation has resulted in other solutions, allowing us to build smarter with more control over the time schedule. Inbo as a professional partner has a pleasant and sincere attitude towards our projects and clients. They are capable of making complex issues simpler, which saves us money and thus allows us to put more quality into the buildings we make.”

Ilse Brok from Stam+ de Koning and Bart van Berlo from Inbo together lead the Bouwburo. From the temporary shed on site, overlooking the construction of Space-S, they work as a team on the engineering of Space-S and of several other (BIM) projects. Ilse and Bart do this with visible pleasure in their work; our collaboration makes their work better, and much more fun.
