Civil Engineering

From an eight-kilometre-long high-water channel to 'tame' the IJssel, to renovating and 'jacking up' a road bridge that 300,000 cars drive over every day, VolkerWessels designs, builds and maintains civil engineering structures in the infrastructure, energy and real estate markets. From structural works like viaducts, bridges and tunnels, to water works like sluices, weirs and flood defences, our know-how and expertise in concrete construction and hydraulics is illustrated in many structures.

Ramspol Bridge, Highway N50


One of our strengths is integrated project management; we excel at relieving clients of project tasks, from the first rough sketch to the final brick. Our client's wishes are our point of departure. With our technical creativity, we look for innovative technologies and smart solutions. We use modern software such as BIM for process management and communication with construction partners and other stakeholders.

Reclamation 'Noordwaard'

Considerate Constructors, ideal neighbours

Sustainable materials such as 'green concrete'; minimum nuisance to neighbours; use of sustainable sources like rainwater and sunlight: neighbourhood management and sustainability top our agenda right from the tendering phase. Whether the project concerns a busy road bridge or the immersion of a 12,000 tonne aqueduct, the construction of a motorway or an aqueduct or ecoduct in a vulnerable natural area.
