At Laudy, they work with a large group their own of professionals. This gives the organisation a good mix of own and hired employees on the construction site. The large percentage of own employees ensures a high level of involvement and high quality of the work delivered.
The character of Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling
"Our character is what makes us us,” says Managing Director Raymond Veugelers. “We are our partners’ clients. This means that we are honest and transparent right from the start. Making risks transparent is important, which is why we always discuss early on. Furthermore, we prefer to work as much as possible in construction teams and as little as possible in tenders. This way, we can propagate this culture."
By working with integrated project teams involved from the first design to completion, Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling combines strength and specialism. The company combines various disciplines through the diverse composition of its project teams, enabling it to approach integrated projects in the right way.
Just like the Nutrition Centre's 'Wheel of Five', Laudy stays healthy by paying sufficient attention to all five elements every day. A healthy company in a healthy condition.
In addition to the employees, Laudy has four other components that complete its own 'Wheel of Five'—Relationships, Society, Innovation & Sustainability and Safety & Quality. These themes can be found in every project and serve as internal building blocks.
Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling wants to implement innovations in every project and thus be ahead of the market. For example, Laudy embraces innovative organisational forms such as LEAN, in which improvements are continually monitored. Laudy also wants to push the boundaries of sustainability in every project. However, the client also plays a major role in this, so the focus is mainly on advising and managing. An example of innovation in the field of sustainability is the use of electric vehicles and hybrid buses.
Creating a safe workplace is of high importance, as we want every employee to return home safely every day. A safety coach is employed full-time to ensure this. This person helps Laudy employees create awareness and improve safety aspects.
Regarding further digitalisation, Veugelers explains that "Snag-stream is a software we use to make recordings. We use it to show the progress of the construction site. This way of working helps us manage the project. We also use demolition robots: robots that can demolish for us. Handy and very effective."
Laudy's little sister
Laudy is continuously growing. On 15 January 2021, Laudy announced that it had started its own property development organisation, Laudy Vastgoedontwikkeling. The new organisation is an ambitious property developer that realises new-build and transformation projects throughout Limburg.
Laudy has an array of expertise, of which industrial service is one example. A permanent team of specialised employees performs maintenance activities and works on projects at an industrial location. Then there is restoration, a completely different expertise. Restoration is a profession in its own right, a profession that Laudy has more than mastered. The team of experts consists of restoration specialists such as carpenters, marl and natural stone workers, restoration bricklayers and restoration plasterers.
Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling restores churches, castles, fortifications, farms, factory buildings, and watermills using traditional craftsmanship. Our specialist teams work with their own employees as much as possible. This way, knowledge is retained within the organisation, and we can guarantee high-quality work.
Raymond has been Managing Director at Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling since 2018. He believes that healthy living and working is essential for the quality of life and therefore the future of Limburg. They work on that every day with the enthusiastic Laudy team.
