Heijmans and Burgers Ergon to renovate Data Centres for the tax and customs administration

April 13, 2011 - London

Heijmans' subsidiary Burgers Ergon bv Technical Services will be undertaking the renovation of the Tax and Customs Administration's Data Centres in Apeldoorn under contract to the Netherlands Government Building Agency. Heijmans Non-residential Building will look after the structural component. The contract for the integral engineering and realization is valued at over € 47 million.

The design & construct contract comprises the renovation of two separate data centre locations. This involves the new development of a technology building with redundant energy and cold generation and the replacement of other building installations in the data rooms. In the existing building, which will be provided with an additional floor, the same electrical and mechanical engineering installations will be implemented.

Key objectives within this multidisciplinary renovation project are to ensure reliable installations and the continuity of the Tax and Customs Administration's primary processes. The integral approach adopted by Burgers Ergon and Heijmans Non-residential Building will reduce any inconvenience to a minimum and prevent disruption to logistics movements during construction. In brief: it will be work as usual during the construction phase.

The quality aspect was a major criterion during contract award. This is a recurring theme in the detailed work plan, the risk management plan and the organization of the renovation process. Engineering work will commence shortly and the project is to be completed at the end of 2013.
