Managing the entire construction lifecycle

Ballast Nedam Industriebouw is undergoing a transformation from a civil contractor into an all-round contractor as it maximises synergies within its portfolio of businesses.
Following Renaissance’s acquisition of Ballast Nedam shares in early 2016, the company has benefited from a wider scope of knowledge and expertise as part of the partnership.
Part of Ballast Nedam NV, Ballast Nedam Industriebouw focuses entirely on industrial construction projects within the chemical, oil and gas sectors.
Cor Kerkhof, chief operational officer explains: ‘We carry out all aspects of industrial construction, of any conceivable size and complexity: from maintenance, improvement and renovation to completely new construction projects, in existing plants or installations. We specialise in civil work and architectural constructions, aboveground and underground infrastructure techniques, as well as piping and mechanical work and electrical installations.’
Implementing full-scale projects in countries such as Russia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and in the Middle East is Renaissance’s core business.
