Opening Lecture

23rd of February

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 his/her projects. This year Scheldebouw will introduce you to the exciting world of façade engineering. Scheldebouw has executed the façade for some of European most renown 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 you through this project, Scheldebouw will give you a small insight into the design and engineering of our façade, which includes an advanced structural, thermal and acoustic analysis.

Furthermore, they have also developed innovative and sustainable façade solutions such as the Closed Cavity Façade (CCF) and other double-wall concepts, which they will present to you. Scheldebouw develops, designs, tests and produces these facades in their two facilities in the Netherlands.

When you attend the lecture, you will get a free Scheldebouw goodie. The Opening lecture will be streamed via Youtube, open for everyone to see! Click here to go to the Opening Lecture

Companies Vision on: Sustainability

25th of February

12:40 – 13:25

For this year’s edition we have a new event, which is called Companies Vision on: Sustainability. On the 25th of February this new event will be held from 12:40 till 13:25. The subject of this year is sustainability because it is becoming more and more important. 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 point of views 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.

The companies that will participate during this debate are:

  • Team V Architectuur
  • Studio RAP
  • HEVO

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