We are Zonneveld ingenieurs. A structural engineerings office with over 30 years experience in a.o. high-rise, utility, residential buildings, healthcare and shopping centres. Both projects which are built from scratch and projects which are transformed are part of our long list of references. Safety engineering has also been part of our work for 20 years, we are currently very much involved in making the buildings in Groningen earthquake resistant.

Project Alexandrium Rotterdam consists of three parts. Alexandrium I is the old shoppingcentre 'Oosterhof', Alexandrium II contains megastores and Alexandrium III is the 'Woonmall', which focuses on home decoration.
Shopping centre Oosterhof has been radically renovated and expanded between 1996 and 2004.
Alexandrium I consists of the existing centre, a northern expansion and the satellite building. The existing shopping centre is located on an elevated level on top of a two-storey parking garage.
A walkway connects the shopping centre to the +1 level of the satellite building. Escalators form the connection with the 'arc' that is Alexandrium II. Alexandrium II consists of two storeys intended for megastores. This building has been designed and executed very economically. In front of the building a free standing distinctive advertising display with a height of 12 metres and a length of 280 metres has been placed. Alexandrium III (the 'Woonmall') consists of three storeys, that are split into two parts by a long atrium. Above this atrium the terminal-roof was implemented, in order to created parking space for 100 cars on this roof. The parking deck is accessible by a corkscrew-shaped driveway.
New buildings is one of the three work areas of Zonneveld ingenieurs. High-rise, innercity, complex, but also simpler projects belong to our impressive oeuvre.
Another work area of Zonneveld ingenieurs is Transformation. In the past few years, we have been involved with the transformation of Cool63 in the centre of Rotterdam, the renovation of the Sijthoff building in the centre of The Hague, The Dordrechts museum in Dordrecht and the Wijnhavenarea in The Hague.
An important work area of Zonneveld ingenieurs is safety engineering. We are currently very much involved in making the buildings in Groningen earthquake resistant and also regularly make impact analyses for important buildings throughout the Netherlands.
