Turner & Townsend appointed technical adviser to two Dutch projects

UK consultant Turner & Townsend has been picked as technical adviser for two building projects in the Netherlands. It was awarded the contracts by BNG Bank, which is financing them.

One is a public-private partnership for a town hall in the Municipal Council of Westland, the first deal of its kind in the Netherlands. T&T will help design the financing structure for the development over 25 years.

The town hall will consist of two buildings each covering about 6,000 square metres, including a civic centre and an archive. Work is due to be completed in 2017.

The second scheme is a comprehensive financial risk assessment for the development of student accommodation at the Delft University of Technology.   

The Delft University campus project, which starts at the end of the year, consists of a two-phase, 36,000 square metre development.

The initial phase will comprise the redevelopment of existing buildings into student apartments and a supermarket, bar and restaurant, coffee corner and medical centre. The second phase will be the development of 565 high-rise student apartments.
