Working in a water-control structure

During the process, our client, CineCity, wanted to add a theatre function to the venue. We therefore had to add underground dressing rooms, an orchestra pit and a goods lift to the design. When integrated with the existing design, it meant that we had to work inside the primary water-control structure. Together with Grontmij (now called Sweco), we aligned the structural design and the implementation methods. The building is now incorporated in the primary water-control structure and is prepared for future dyke elevations.

Short preparation and construction time

We had not even started construction, but the first theatre performance had already been scheduled. By making use of prefabricated concrete elements from our own factory, we were able to complete the project within a short timeframe. Together with the public authorities and utility companies, we also managed to reroute an existing public road, cables and piping during the brief preparation period.
