The character of Ballast Nedam West
"Our backbone is what makes us who we are: professional and honest,” according to Director Niels Doodeman. “We also believe in the power of our fix-it mentality. We can turn any challenge into a solution. We build complete 'turnkey' assignments for our clients. This means that we assume responsibility for all aspects of design and execution and work with a permanent core of expert partners who act as an extension of Ballast Nedam West. This working method gives us more control over the process."
The organisation has a strong focus on risk management. There is open communication to identify risks early and to determine and implement control measures.
Vision on the future
Ballast Nedam West has a clear vision of the future, based on continuous improvement and supported by clear, appropriate plans.
There is a strong focus on high-quality housing projects in the Randstad region. Due to their complexity, these projects have a utilitarian character. In addition, they intend to focus more on the realisation of maintenance projects and aligning capacity with the increasing demand for housing improvement and sustainability.
Ballast Nedam West also wants to differentiate itself by being of great added value as a builder, focusing on delivering high quality and maintaining control over the entire construction process, including the development phase. This ensures that the risks remain manageable and responsibility is taken. Finally, they use their creativity to come up with reliable and expert solutions.
Based in Rotterdam, Ballast Nedam West proudly works on projects in the Randstad region. These projects are characterised by the company's vision of manufacturability and its control over the design process. With driven professionals, they create more and more unique buildings. Cooperation and professionalism is what makes Ballast Nedam West successful. For Niels, it is precisely this interpersonal cooperation that is the key to success.
