Wednesday 15 November, Anton Schaaf, Chief Executive Officer, and Ernst-Jan Minnema, Chief Financial Officer, signed the contract with BAM Bouw en Techniek to build Océ’s new headquarters on the Lodewijk van der Grintenstraat in Venlo.
The signing of this contract is a milestone and marks the conclusion of a thorough tender process. This is an important step toward the actual construction work. The first construction activities at the building site are not yet visible. It is common practice for a project of this size to start with a digital construction phase, followed by the actual construction, which will start in May 2018. Total building time is 18 months.
“We are pleased to confirm our cooperation with BAM today, and we are confident that BAM is the right partner for this building project,” says Anton Schaaf.
Erik Moleman, director Projects BAM Bouw en Techniek: “We are proud to receive the trust of Océ and the opportunity to realize this ambitious plan. We use advanced technology to first build this project digitally. So when we start with the actual construction, we are 100% sure that the building will meet all expectations.”
