De Meeuw utilises pre-fabricated (industrially manufactured) components as much as possible. Industrial manufacturing means building under controlled conditions: unaffected by weather conditions, providing optimised conditioning of materials and ideal working conditions for employees. De Meeuw has chosen for an efficient and controlled production process. This ensures the quality of the components as well as the building itself.
The flexible construction method offers an alternative to more conventional construction methods. Conventional construction involves building on-site step-by-step, from the foundation to the last details. Flexible construction means that the building is first made entirely in the factory from prefabricated components and then later placed on site and completed. This building method ensures that construction take place more quickly and the construction site is utilised for a shorter period of time. Complete construction modules are produced and assembled as much as possible with built-in technical installations and equipment. All of the components and equipment are highly coordinated, ensuring higher quality, lower failure costs and significantly fewer delivery points.
Utilising the synergy of multiple specialist organisations is an important part of achieving far-reaching end results. De Meeuw works with BIM (Building Information Model) in order to perfect its preparation and implementation procedures. From initial sketches to building operations. All of the project data is stored here in the information model, with access for all of the parties involved.
De Meeuw is ISO 9001 certified. ISO 9001 is a standard that places requirements on an organisation's quality management. The emphasis is on process management. De Meeuw uses ISO 9001 to make its processes more transparent and manageable. And to make ongoing improvements.
