What started for us, in January 2020, as a consultancy assignment for the development of a production script for the port of Rotterdam for the creation of a temporary quarantine zone, soon turned into a hard reality when two months later this plan evolved into building an emergency healthcare location at Rotterdam Ahoy. Which we were also allowed to physically build a few days later due to the rapidly increasing numbers of patients in hospitals and ICs.
It has been one of the most special and complex projects we’ve ever done, in which a multidisciplinary collaboration has arisen between the Rotterdam Safety Region, the GGD, Rotterdam Ahoy, and experts from the healthcare sector and specialists in the field of pandemics. Our broad experience in the field of production, facilities, technology and logistics turned out to be a great combination, together with our combined decisiveness, speed and flexibility. We are very grateful and proud that we have been able to make a valuable contribution to the creation of this emergency healthcare location, but above all the knowledge we have been able to acquire in a completely different field of work – the support of healthcare.
