Challenging the traditional construction industry

Rönesans Holding was founded with the vision to challenge the traditional construction industry, including fully understanding the client's actual needs and creating an environment where employees can develop themselves without sacrificing integrity and competitiveness. This presented the company with the challenge of attracting entrepreneurial and ambitious professionals who are open to change. They took on the challenge, and with success! Rönesans Holding has grown into a family of more than 75,000 employees, who work in the construction, infrastructure, property development, energy, heavy industries and healthcare sector.

Iconic and record-breaking projects

Rönesans Holding projects can be found in Europe, Asia and Africa. One example of their work is the highest building in Europe, the 462-meter-high Laktha Center in Saint Petersburg. They are also responsible for constructing the Neva Towers in Moscow, better known as the fourth and eighth tallest building in Europe, and the Başakşehir Çam & Sakura City Hospital in Istanbul, the world's largest seismologically isolated building with 1 million m2.

A shared mission

Within the Rönesans Group, we benefit from each other's expertise. As Ballast Nedam, we learn a lot from the knowledge and experience that Rönesans Holding has gained with high-rise buildings. Take, for example, the 154-meter-high CoolTower that we are building in Rotterdam.

Rönesans Holding, in turn, uses our expertise in large-scale infrastructure projects and offshore. Moreover, we have found each other in a shared mission: to challenge the market to change without losing sight of our people. This translates into selective tendering, being critical in what we offer our clients, creating opportunities for employees, and the smart use of knowledge from previous projects to select new tenders.

Strong international profile

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank Group, became a partner of Rönesans Holding with a $215 million investment in 2016. By focusing on value creation, Rönesans Holding ensures operational and financial synergy between the business units.

For Ballast Nedam, the next few years will be characterised by healthy growth in the Netherlands and abroad. More than ever, we are able to take on new challenges. Internationally, we benefit particularly from the synergy between Ballast Nedam and Rönesans Holding. Thanks to Rönesans Holding, we have a broader international reach, with international teams and supply chains. This differentiates us and offers opportunities to apply the best practices to our Dutch projects. In return, it offers opportunities to apply our Dutch knowledge to construction projects all over the world.
