Public Procurement
abcnova

abcnova offers a wide range of services Lees meer
that cover different project management needs, The projectmanagers at our organisation have different expertises. One of those expertises is public procurement. To create a level playing field for all businesses across Europe, EU law sets out minimum harmonised public procurement rules. These rules organise the way public authorities and certain public utility operators purchase goods, works and services. They are transposed into national legislation and apply to tenders whose monetary value exceeds a certain amount. For tenders of lower value, national rules apply. But what is the process of procurement? Which procurement rules are there? During this practical example we’ll try to lay out these rules by using an effective and fun case.

From ambition to feasibility, the art of structural design
Pieters Bouwtechniek

Pieters Bouwtechniek is a state Lees meer
of the art engineering firm that has offices in several cities in the Netherlands. The company was originally founded in Haarlem and has grown to a leading position in the field of structural design, with a primary focus on buildings. We have reached this leading position through our love and passion for the design of structures. Throughout the years we came to understand that structural engineering is so much more than making calculations and modeling structures. To us, it’s an artform. Our everyday challenge lies within the question: How do we empower the vision of our clients, co-operate with ambitious architects, while achieving high standards in structural performance and buildability? In this workshop you will take part in a case-study that poses a structural challenge within an integral building design. By participating you will experience how to translate an architectural idea into a structural design that meets all criteria.

The VAN AKEN Building Game
Van Aken

A design process consists of collaborating with other disciplines.Lees meer
Based on a realized project, you will play a board game developed by VAN AKEN with four different parties. Participants can choose who they want to be:
– Architect (Glasses)
– Developer / Investor (Scarf)
– Contractor (Helmet)
– Stakeholder (eg care institution) (Nurse’s cap or coat)
During the game, participants will learn what problems you as an architect can run into in the process of realizing a project, but also as a developer, contractor, etc..
How do you defend your choices, is the program of requirements still valid, do you communicate with the stakeholder, how much money does the developer wish to invest in sustainability, etc.
The various building elements are present, elements can be exchanged, details in facades can be customized, etc. You need to obtain a minimum number of quality points, but on the other hand you have a maximum of budget points to use. The goal is to reach an agreement (and a complete building) within time and within budget!
