Structure coordination and elaboration

Structure is a team sport. In the team of client, architect and consultants, we have the key role. All requirements are translated into a building design for optimal coordination of the disciplines such as building physics, fire safety, structures, architecture and installations. This integrated process approach with a focus on risk management is our core quality.

Structural engineering knowledge is constantly evolving. This is reflected in the diversity of structural engineering specialties at ABT. Our knowledge and resources will provide the solution for any challenge. We have the skills to address complexity.

Our specialties:

  • Architectural designs
  • Project coordination
  • Existing buildings
  • Circular detailing
  • Damage survey
  • Feasibility studies
  • Building Envelope engineering
  • Consulting on planned management and maintenance
  • BIM

Projects

ABT will translate complex programs into designs that require a multidisciplinary project approach. Our buildings are known for their high quality, architectural excellence realized within our clients’ objectives. For the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, we provided the architectural design, construction management, 3D digitization and technical design of the concrete relief sculptures designed by Iris van Herpen. We also deployed multiple specialties at the Boijmans van Beuningen Depot. We prepared the technical design for the glass façade and provided MVRDV with structural engineering support for the elaboration of the building.

Depot Boijmans van Beuningen

Depot Boijmans van Beuningen

In November 2021, His Majesty the King opened the Valhalla of Art and Collection Management: Boijmans van Beuningen Depot. All 151,000 objects accessible to the public in one location and under one roof. A world first! Our façade consultants assisted MVRDV to find the best construction method for the spectacular façade. In addition, we supported the structural engineering of the entire building.

Forum Groningen

Forum Groningen

Forum Groningen is an iconic cultural complex consisting of eleven floors. Below the building is a five basement parking garage consisting of approximately four hundred parking spaces and 1,500 bicycle parking spaces. ABT played an important role in realizing the principles of the architectural concept.
Binnenhof

Renovation of the Binnenhof

The large-scale renovation of the Binnenhof, home of the Dutch parliament is underway. The heart of our democracy is being adapted to the demands of the new era. Commissioned by the Central Government Real Estate Agency, ABT is providing the structural, geotechnical and engineering design for the building parts of the Council of State, and the structural and geotechnical design for the building parts of the Senate.
Schiphol Terminal

Schiphol Terminal

Schiphol Terminal

In 2017, Schiphol presented the question of what a new terminal, fully integrated into the existing airport, could look like. The 'One Terminal concept' was the central idea; the airport not as a collection of more or less stand-alone terminals, but as a compact unit housing all facilities under one roof. The design is to contribute to a good travel experience, an excellent travel process, sustainability and is future-proof.
