Road construction


We have a fantastic infrastructure in the Netherlands. This is important to a transit country like the Netherlands from both an economic and social perspective. Working on our road network involves a complex interplay of safety, speed, reliability and environment.

Contracts have evolved this decade to a form in which contractors need to take more and more responsibility regarding design, implementation and maintenance

The new types of contracts mean the contractor needs to take more and more responsibility in the field of design, implementation and maintenance.

This also offers opportunities! The contractor can make a difference by using innovations and introducing creative solutions. We are keen to help by collaborating on sustainable mobility through innovations and creative solutions.

One example is coloured asphalt. Ask any adult or child about the colour of asphalt and they will all say it is black. However, that is not necessarily the case! Precisely for this reason we want to inspire and challenge landscape architects, designers, highway authorities, customers and government bodies to think outside of the box. In that way we can all help to create a colourful living environment.

One of our innovations is a light-reflecting road surface. This increases visibility, which, in turn, helps increase traffic safety and, at the same time, saves significantly on energy costs (up to no less than 47%) in terms of public lighting. Another benefit is that it lowers the temperature of the road surface on summer days, which significantly reduces the risk of rutting as a consequence of softened asphalt. This is an innovation that pleases us!
