We have acquired extensive experience and expertise in the field of floating structures and buildings; both nationally as internationally (Great Britain, USA, Middle-East, Asia, Europe). As being one of the pioneers in the Netherlands we have executed many projects and are specialists in all the building and engineering stages related to floating structures and buildings. Floating structures concerns more than just floating houses. It covers multiple forms, shapes and types of projects. Our projects vary from small floating objects, like floating solar panels, lounges and gardens, to floating houses and villas, to floating cities and parks, to fully floating islands, like our project in Malaysia where we engineered and designed a floating island of 5.500 m2 (1.35 acre).
