9. We value our large base of small projects as part of our business model of local
entrepreneurship. This model ensures a good understanding of clients’ needs, knowledge of
local market conditions, people and projects.
VolkerWessels complements this work with larger, multidisciplinary projects. We can excel
in this by sharing knowledge and expertise and working together within the VolkerWessels
group. VolkerWessels' natural preference is relationship-driven commissioning. By this we
mean that client and contractor have clear expectations at the start of the project and
understand each other's situation when unforeseen situations arise.
1. Client centric business model
10. VolkerWessels’ employees are the foundation of our company. VolkerWessels wants to
attract and retain the best employees. To this end, we focus on inspiring leadership that
establishes a culture of transparency, cooperation, entrepreneurship, diversity and
We also offer development paths for all disciplines, so that it is possible to gain experience
in different companies in our divisions within VolkerWessels and in different markets. In this
way, VolkerWessels wants to be, and to remain, the employer of choice.
2. Employer of choice
11. VolkerWessels delivers high-quality projects in terms of design, preparation, execution,
service and maintenance, optimising value for our clients and minimising failure costs.
VolkerWessels invests intensively in expertise and tools to improve the way we use project
management data and insights.
By leveraging economies of scale and learning across multiple projects, to evaluate and
improve, we can better manage costs, time and risks, as well as safety on our projects. We
also industrialise our processes by prefabricating and standardising components. This sets
us apart in the way we deliver our unique projects and creates a continuous operational
improvement cycle that is the key to the future success of VolkerWessels.
3. Operational excellence
12. VolkerWessels wants to be at the forefront of change to maintain our leading role in the
market. We are committed to digitalisation through the development of apps, efficient
support for data storage in the cloud, a fast network, direct access to the relevant
applications and the right security.
VolkerWessels believes the sector will change more in the coming years than in the past,
both in what we make and how we make it. Digitalisation and energy transition, for example,
are key drivers of this change. To drive the growth of new business, we are focused on
accelerating the identification, development and scaling-up of our innovations.
