In order to meet the growing demand for ever larger 100-metre plus custom luxury yachts, our client Royal van Lent decided to realise a new construction and refit facility in Amsterdam.
Arup is providing fully integrated engineering services for the realisation of the new dry-dock annex manufacturing hall for superyachts. It will have the capacity to build ships of up to 160 metres in length and includes workshops, offices and landscaping of the outside terrain, from concept design through to realisation.
We were awarded this project thanks to our ability to provide an integrated team with the majority of necessary disciplines, such as project management, geotechnics, structural engineering, civil engineering, electrical and mechanical engineering, building physics, fire engineering, façade engineering, maritime engineering and acoustic consulting.
Being able to provide all services from under one roof both in coordination and management, our client benefits from having one single point of contact with the design and engineering team, which ensures efficient management.
Completion is expected in 2018.
