Corsmit renamed Royal HaskoningDHV

Corsmit Raadgevend Ingenieurs, part of Royal HaskoningDHV, began operating as Royal HaskoningDHV effective 1 May 2013. RHDHV is specialised in structural design for buildings, industry, energy, mining, maritime and infrastructure, we are able to provide all structural expertise needed in projects.

Buildings

The Buildings Business Line has developed in-depth understanding of the multiple challenges that clients are facing. We combine our knowledge of buildings with focus on the sectors Health Care, Mission Critical Facilities, Corporate Real Estate, Arts & Culture, Science & Research, Transport Hubs.

The groups structural design and building services are member of Merge.
We perform our role both as traditional consultant/engineer as well as in new contract forms like DBFMO, PPP etc.

Design Philosophy

Creative, innovative, sustainable and pragmatic integrated solutions for buildings. That’s what we provide. Aiming to enhance society together, we work closely with clients, architects, design and building partners, to ensure the best projects are delivered on time and within budget, while providing a better, brighter, sustainable future.

Added Value

As environmental aspects continue to change with increasing speed, the requirements which buildings must meet in terms of health & safety, flexibility and cost effectiveness become ever more stringent. We focus on creating inspiring structural and building services designs using innovative technologies to deliver built environments that help our clients to succeed. We ensure that the best solution can be built at minimum expense in terms of total cost of ownership, but can also be exciting, refreshing and a pleasure to look at. Our experts are active in identifying new trends, emerging challenges and technical advancements which we develop into promising opportunities. By using our advanced skills, network and business models, we are able to convert opportunities into innovative solutions which offer value within society.

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) & Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Building Information Models (BIM) are increasingly being used by our experts to develop our projects. Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) is an effective step forward in creating efficient building designs. The VDC approach which has been developed in cooperation with Stanford University and the University of Delft, focuses on product, process and organization, before the actual detailed design is carried out. Royal HaskoningDHV uses integrated rooms (I Rooms), in which we stimulate the integrated approach using virtual models to create the most efficient design. This approach has advantages such as time optimization, cost effectiveness and risk reduction, without affecting the quality of the finished product. It leads to a smooth integration process with all stakeholders and disciplines within the design team.
