De Kroon: Icon from The Hague under contract

21 Juni 2017

 

We as a company are originally from The Hague, therefore we feel extra pride when an assignment from a genuine icon from The Hague such as De Kroon is tendered to us. After a successful test clean in 2016, we recently became the first company to carry out a complete service in almost five years with the assistance of a special facade installation. This quickly became a permanent contract for the maintenance of the inaccessible glass of the Owners Association (VvE) from the 18th floor to the 39th floor(!) and that is a huge compliment to our staff. Special thanks to the management company K & C Eigendom Management B.V. for the supervision of this tricky process.

This addition provides us with a major presence in the Beatrixkwartier. De Kroon (2011) is situated in the Wijnhavenkwartier between Central Station and the Spui. With 40 floors and reaching a height of 131.5 metres, it is one of the tallest buildings in The Hague. The design by architectural firm Rapp+Rapp was inspired by high-rise buildings constructed in Chicago between 1900 and 1930. De Kroon is on the south side of the two skyscrapers of the ministries of Security and Justice and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. 

Proud: Degenaar Gevelonderhoud acquires ISO 14001 certificate

19 Juni 2017

 

Careful consideration for the environment has played an important role within our service provision for many years. We are very aware that our work on facades and buildings has an impact on the environment. We strive to carry out each assignment as sustainably as possible, for example, by being aware of the amount of water we use, or by only using biodegradable materials. We have therefore also put high demands on our suppliers.

 

Recently, in addition to the ISO 9001 quality certificate we had already acquired, we also scooped the ISO 14001 certificate and we are extremely proud of this fact! This international standard concerns all requirements for the implementation of an environmental management system within our company. The system helps us to better identify, manage, and improve all aspects of our business operations that affect the environment. Now we can constantly improve the sustainability of our service provision, and reduce negative effects on the environment.

Amsterdam icon undergoes maintenance

19 Juni 2017

 

The Bank is located at one of the most prestigious locations in Amsterdam. This is an impressive monument which was previously owned by ABN AMRO prior to their move to the Zuidas at the end of the nineties. The oldest part of the bank building, which was designed by Ouëndag and Berlage, was extensively rebuilt and extended at the rear in the 1970s. A large part of the original building was lost and the stately bank hall was closed. A striking landscape appeared on the roof that many people thought was ugly. The 80-year old monument (42,500 m2 in size) has now been given a new purpose, today accommodating a selection of catering establishments, retail and office space. It is an honour for us to be maintaining all glass windows and metal facade parts of this ‘grand dame’ on a regular basis since the start of 2017 www.thebankamsterdam.nl

New assignment: ITO towers and SOM building

16 Juni 2017

 

Anyone who has visited the Amsterdam Zuidas business district will immediately recognise both buildings: ITO and SOM. Two striking office buildings that are located next to each other, and are therefore frequently mentioned in the same breath. The ITO tower is 100 metres high and has a floor space of 34,000 m². The office building is part of the Mahler4 complex, one of the projects that form the Amsterdam Zuidas. The SOM building has a total surface area of 18,000 m². We are cleaning all metal facade components of both buildings, as well as preserving these at the ITO tower, for management company Apleona (previously Bilfinger). Fortunately, because we are used to working at heights, we do not get vertigo from this wonderful new assignment!

Unique new telescopic boom lift delivered

24 juni 2016 

 

Today we added a new chassis mounted telescopic boom lift to our fleet of machines thanks to HDW Nederland from Ridderkerk: the Versalift VTX-240. This articulated telescopic boom has a maximum working height of 24 metres and has a unique property. In comparison to regular aerial work platforms that only extend vertically, the VTX-240 also has an outreach of 12.5 metres thanks to an articulation point at 11 metres. This allows us to reach places which would be impossible or troublesome with other AWPs. The Versalift has only been available in the Netherlands since April 2016. Degenaar is currently one of the few maintenance companies in the Netherlands that work with the Versalift.

Contract signed for facade maintenance at WTC Rotterdam

1 juni 2016

 

We are delighted to announce that we have been able to add a beautiful building to our projects once more. The contract was signed with DTZ Zadelhoff and Bouwinvest last week for cleaning the facades of the World Trade Center in the centre of Rotterdam. The former Beursgebouw (Stock exchange) on the Coolsingel has a monumental status and houses office spaces, a Business Center, a conference centre, high-tech meeting rooms, shops and catering establishments. The grey green glass tower is 90 metres high and has become an architectural beacon in the city. We have already commenced making (and keeping) the facades wonderfully clean. We will certainly have a fantastic view of the city as we work. www.wtcrotterdam.nl

Teupen Leo 36 aerial work platform

30 mei 2016 

 

Today we started using our new Teupen LEO36T aerial work platform to replace our old machine of the same model, which gave us 11 years of loyal service. It is a unique machine with a maximum working height of 36 metres at a relatively low weight of approximately 5,000 kg. The AWP meets the latest technical requirements, also in terms of emissions. We offer our sincere thanks to Wilco Donkersloot from HDW Nederland B.V. for expert delivery and supervision.

With an area of approximately 85,000 m², MegaStores The Hague is one of the Netherlands´ largest covered shopping centres. The complex contains approximately 50 stores including a large number of well-known home decor stores such as Beter Bed, Leen Bakker, Auping Plaza, Montèl but also stores such as Prénatal, BCC, Pets Place and Kids Eiland.

Since the start of this year, we have implemented the regular cleaning of various parts of the exterior of the complex, including the facades, which has been an exciting challenge for us. www.megastores.nl
