During the layout of urban and rural areas, infrastructure plays an important role. The quality of public space demands a careful integration in a complex surrounding. Royal Haskoning brings this knowledge and experience to the table through our regional offices. We live and work around the corner and are familiar with the conditions of the location.
When an area is being developed, measures have to be taken with regard to water management, the access infrastructure and preparing the site for building and occupancy. Royal Haskoning brings this knowledge in from our regional offices throughout the country. We live and work just round the corner and we know exactly how things are around the site.
Together with the geometric design we take care of the complete civil engineering design including the dimensions of all types of surfacing structures—and the same goes for runways and taxiways, and surfacing for container terminals. Policy developments in the field of sustainable building and low congestion execution are incorporated in the recommendations. And of course the design we come up with is cost-effective and optimised economically in relation to the cost of maintenance.
Light rail & metro
Light rail is a generic term for trams, high-speed trams, metro systems and light railways. The systems have many interfaces with the environment. Systematic thinking and customized work are important for a successful project. Fitting solutions can be found by using an integrated approach to accessibility, landscaping, safety, construction and planning.
The development of sustainable water systems is a fascinating but difficult challenge. Royal Haskoning not only come up with bold and well thought out designs and environmental analyses, but also supervise the entire process needed to configure a water system as efficiently and effectively as possible.
From a broader perspective we scrutinize every aspect of the collection and transport of wastewater, resulting in socially acceptable services that will satisfy you and all other interested parties.
Structure in the underground infrastructure is vital in both urban and rural areas. We create this structure by means of pipe runs, bundling of cables and pipes, bored pipes, mains and pipe tunnels at the planning stage. We take care of the whole pathway from inventorying and preparation through to design, contracting out, management and supervision.
