“High requirements on finish and look & feel”
Remco Ruimtebouw, working together with Janssen de Jong Projectontwikkeling, built a new regional office for technical distributors ES Elektro and Hoogland Mennens, who are both part of the itsme group of companies, in Haarlemmerliede near Schiphol, in the Netherlands.
Turn-key new building
This international group of companies serves industrial end users, machine manufacturers, panel builders and industrial installers. The turn-key project showcases the versatility of various architectural applications, such as a PVC roof, aluminium wall panels, an aluminium curtain wall and high-quality materials for the interior. “We had worked with these two companies before, in Venlo,” said itsme's Finance Director Marian Hagenberg.
She can look back on a pleasant development and building process, and one where there was also room for critical feedback. “We are a self-willed client and we attended all the building meetings. The result is really to our satisfaction. The building complies with the criteria we set on quality, functionality and aesthetics. This is an excellent base for us to serve our customers in the Amsterdam area.”
