In order to meet the requirements for the nautical dimensions of 43 km of waterways in the northern part of North-Holland and to obtain an optimization between value and price, the Province of North Holland tendered the project as a 'Best Value Procurement'-contract.
De Vries & van de Wiel realized this project successfully as an expert on the design of the deepened and widened waterways, the related investigations and finally the dredging of the waterways. De Vries & van de Wiel took care of the whole project management, all necessary permits, detection and localization of cables and pipelines and 100% reallocating of released dredged material.
The client was also helped with the communication and with discussions of issues with stakeholders. Complaints were resolved within 24 hours and press releases were looked after.
