Our team

From our offices in Zwolle, Utrecht, Groningen and Nijmegen, more than 60 professionals are dedicated to providing customer experience excellence. Driven and committed team players with a broad vision and expertise in all required areas. Our focus is on the well-being of people and the planet and the importance of personal relationships and a powerful network. We stand for a new style of developing.

Creating homes and living environments for the healthiest generations requires close collaboration of many disciplines, based on one integral idea. Our strength is to connect all ideas that arise in close collaboration with municipalities, investors, housing corporations, local residents and future residents, and translate them into sustainable and inspiring concepts that lead to cost-effective developments. That is why we have our own in-house architects and concept developers who play a pivotal role in an extensive network of specialists and stakeholders.
