The character of Ballast Nedam Development
Onno Dwars, CEO of Ballast Nedam Development and winner of the ABN-AMRO Sustainable 50 award, believes that “With urban development, we lay the foundation for a long, healthy and happy life in an area. You must fulfil this role consciously and with the greatest of care. The interaction between the hard and soft aspects of our profession is becoming more important year after year. Our creative and resilient development teams continue to take this further, and we encourage that. What we do is not only of economic value but also of social value. Our team members are given the space and confidence to make a difference. This creates innovative solutions, in the field of sustainability and health, for example, in which the division distinguishes itself."
Innovative, sustainable and award-winning solutions

Global collaborations and developments
Ballast Nedam Development looks at global developments, such as the international scientific theory of so-called Blue Zones, places where people demonstrably live longer.
Inspired by the ingredients that determine this, we investigate together with Development how to create living areas where people live longer, healthier and happier lives. In Maastricht, we worked together with Projectbureau A2 Maastricht; together, we put the dot on the horizon for sustainable urbanization on many levels. “When you can exert a positive influence on urban developments, you will outgrow the role of 'developing buildings' and become a director in making society healthier,” believes CEO Onno Dwars.
As CEO of Ballast Nedam Development, Onno pushes boundaries to make the world a better place for both human and nature.
