We believe in achieving sustainable growth by continuously challenging ourselves to improve. Both as people and professionals. We are eager to learn, adapt, grow and improve. We are innovative, use new techniques, are curious and look for the best solutions. We are challengers; we set the bar high and challenge the existing.

We are Ballast Nedam. We Challenge to Improve.

Unique landscape icons

Bridges, tunnels, utility buildings, ports, houses and highways: every day we build and develop sustainable iconic landmarks that add something to our society. They are executed by our dedicated people and require genuine craftsmanship, knowledge, experience and strong leadership. Supported by the latest techniques.

Our projects

We take you along our projects in the Netherlands and abroad; these are our pieces of art.

Themes for a healthy future

We focus on four themes, in particular, to build a future proof company: safety, sustainability, digitalisation & innovation and social responsibility. 


In terms of safety, we want to ensure that our colleagues return home safely at the end of every day. We are making our building sites energy neutral and our projects sustainable. We work with state-of-the-art BIM models and artificial intelligence to transform our ideas into prototypes. And we make sure to keep an eye on the world around us, making sure we take care of each other and our environment.
