Organisation values

We live and work by our organisation values. That means that we encourage ourselves to stimulate the behaviour we strongly believe in: 
  • We focus on people and relationships

    We are modest and respectful towards others. We have an eye for the needs of others and strive for solutions that account for them. We are credible to work with. We do what we say and offer solutions based on experience.

  • We embrace and stimulate ownership

    We are ambitious and dedicated people. We are committed to the job: we work hard because we want to succeed. And we focus on ownership: we take responsibility and we are accountable for our work.

  • We learn, adapt and grow every day

    We stay hungry for success and we are keen on learning and achieving results. We act with an entrepreneurial mindset: we are practical and resilient with a ‘fix it’ mentality. We embrace diversity. We look from a broader perspective to obtain richer insights and create suitable solutions.

Our organisational units

Ballast Nedam combines the agility and accessibility of a local company with the economies of scale of a large construction company. 

Our organisational units are as much as possible independent companies. They have knowledge of the local markets and know clients well. The corporate organisation supports and facilitates the Business Units, wherever this leads to efficiency and efficacy.

This way we can offer our clients and partners a total solution.
