Industrial and plant construction is multifaceted. The demands on constructing production facilities in the chemical, automobile and power plant sectors are exceedingly high both in terms of existing facilities and new buildings. Many different disciplines have to be fine-tuned.


A project in the Netherlands for an international polycarbonate manufacturer, which is used to make CDs among others, involved extending the adjacent office building without disrupting production or administration. Planning, extension and building measures had to be co-ordinated. The project was completed within budget and schedule and was handed over after all the demands on quality had been met.

Power Plant Construction

A German company contracted a Dutch plant builder to plan and construct its coal-fired power plant in the Netherlands including all the technical building facilities such as smoke extraction and fresh air systems. The contract had already been signed and planning was underway when differences of opinion arose as both the Dutch and German partners interpreted the contract and task differently.

Stalled negotiations as a result of the misunderstanding had to be revived. Apart from that, the contract had to be assessed and claim management and billing procedures set up as well as internal project management. The plant builder contacted AS Enterprise, renowned for its intercultural competence, skill in German and Dutch contracting, as well as its project experience.

Later, AS Enterprise was able to take on successive tasks, which had been done by the Dutch project manager up until then. That meant that halfway through the build, he had been freed up and was available for other projects.


Experience in project management – from planning, permits and execution for both refurbishments and new buildings was also gained in the logistics sector. As project director for the general co-ordinating contractor, we managed a combined logistics and administration building at Frankfurt Airport for Japan’s biggest logistics company. This meant planning 5,000 square metres of storage space and constructing it according to the latest technology standards. This was very challenging as we only had nine months to plan and build the facility. Plans and structural engineering requirements were laid to extend it at a later stage.
