Opening Lecture

8th of March 2022

The Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen will kick off with the Opening lecture. Each year, we invite an interesting speaker who is active in the built environment, to give a lecture about projects that they’ve been a part of. The last edition saw Scheldebouw introduce the attendants to the exciting world of façade engineering. Scheldebouw has executed the façade for some of Europe’s most renowned landmark buildings such as The Shard in London and The Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Currently, they are installing the façade for the new headquarters of Booking.com (ODE) in Amsterdam, a challenging design by UNStudio. By guiding through this project, Scheldebouw gave a small insight into the design and engineering of façades, which includes an advanced structural, thermal, and acoustic analysis.

The exact program of this event will be updated as soon as possible upon confirmation! Stay tuned to find out more about the opening lecture and who it is given by in the 21st edition of Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen in 2022.

The highlight of the Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen is the Career Event, with 24 companies in the building environment that attended this event during the last edition.

Participating companies of the last edition

Companies Vision on: Sustainability

11th of March 2022

Carrying over from last year, the event ‘Companies Vision On:..’ will be held again on March 11th 2020 during the 21st edition of Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen. The topic of this year will be decided later but will most likely be related to sustainability as it is becoming a more and more important topic nowadays. The government together with many construction companies, decided that by 2050 the entire built environment has to be energy neutral. However, we are not close to these goals yet. Sustainability will therefore play an increasingly important role in the construction sector over the next 30 years. This invites for a conversation with various companies and students to see what their points of view are. Also, it is the ideal opportunity for students to see what the companies think is needed and what they expect from the future but also from future employees.

During this event, 3 companies will go into conversation with each other. First, they will represent their company and explain how they include sustainability in their work. After this, they will discuss their point of view on different aspects of sustainability in the built environment. You, as a student have the possibility to ask questions and join in on this discussion.

No subscriptions are necessary because the event will be live-streamed on YouTube. Click here to go to the Companies Vision on: Sustainability!

Company Cases

14th of March 2022

During the cases, you will experience what it is like to work for a company on real cases. The companies will focus their case on the B, A, or U-track. This is also the perfect moment to ask all your questions about the work environment within the company or working sector. 

With the B case, you will get in the role of a constructor and look at a renovation project. The focus will be on optimizing the tender process, with a big challenge in temporarily removing a big stability element. 

With the A case, you will design a transportation hub whereby you will focus on the architectural diagrammatic representation of your idea.

With the U case, you will discuss a certain area/neighborhood for which you will define a program make your best offer for this.

This subscription is currently closed but will open in time for the 21st edition of Bouwkunde Bedrijvendagen in 2022. So stay tuned to not miss out!
