Construction management in its broadest sense
In The Netherlands, construction projects are subject to countless rules and regulations that are changing all the time, making the building process very complex. Hence, effective construction management is indispensable. To us at Groenewout, construction management comprises advising, organizing, supervising, negotiating, monitoring, checking and evaluating the building process. By outsourcing construction management to a professional like Groenewout, you can delegate much of the worry and hassle to us, leaving you free to concentrate on your core business.

Construction management for Hollister
In order to give you a sense of our approach relating to construction management and setting up a logistics operation, we are pleased to outline the Hollister project. Hollister is an American company that is globally active in the field of medical products for ostomy care, wound care and continence care. Hollister supplies to hospitals, chemists and wholesalers as well as directly to consumers. The Hollister distribution center in Etten-Leur comprises 11,000 m2 and serves customers throughout the whole of Europe. Hollister asked Groenewout for support when setting up its new European distribution center. We decided on the site and looked for a project developer. We then defined the logistics concept and the key elements for the basis of the layout planning. After an extensive layout study, detailed project planning and a risk assessment, among other things, work started on construction. We took care of construction management and project management, keeping our finger firmly on the pulse of all the building activities. We performed building inspections and attended the building meetings. Furthermore, we ensured that the installations met all the relevant technical criteria.
