The Bouwhuis Group was present at Provada 2021 with a beautiful exhibition stand. Watch the video below.
The Bouwhuis Group and the municipality of Rijswijk have signed an agreement to jointly ‘build’ 255 apartments in the Plaspoelpolder. The apartments will be located in four old office buildings in Kessler Park.
The apartment complex will be very sustainable and a place to come together. For example, the residents can play sports, eat together and there will even be stores. There will also be electric cars, which residents can rent for a low price. It is estimated that the apartments will be ready for the new residents by the end of 2022.
When you deliver quality and don’t deviate from it, you stand out. Vastgoedjournaal talked to Theo Kreeftmeijer, operations director at Bouwhuis Groep, about the growing attention that external parties have in their management organization and why Bouwhuis Groep chooses to open up this branch of their business to others, but does not want to grow exponentially.
“Our organization is still expanding in various areas and we have a very strong management organization, partly due to our own housing concept Edelwonen. The way in which we organize that management, also catches the eye of others. We are increasingly approached by external parties asking if we can also manage their real estate. This shows that there is a great need within the market for specialized and high-quality management with a personal touch”, says Kreeftmeijer. To meet that demand, the Bouwhuis Group has launched Edel Property Management. This allows us to use our years of management experience for an even wider audience while maintaining quality for residential complexes, offices, commercial premises and shopping centers.
Because they themselves own real estate, EPM knows better than anyone that good management has an impact on customer satisfaction and, of course, returns. A happy tenant means a happy owner. According to Kreeftmeijer, management therefore goes much further than merely operationally managing a property and collecting the rent.
Property owners know that as a manager it is essential to maintain good contact with the tenants. Knowing what their wishes are, what is going on in the building and making it as pleasant as possible for them, so that they have no reason to think about renting elsewhere. But good management also involves valuable time and personnel costs. With its own management branch, the Bouwhuis Groep can also take this off the hands of others.
Future-oriented real estate
Kreeftmeijer: “Our goal is not only to relieve real estate owners of their worries by taking over their daily activities, but also to think along with them about the future of their real estate. To ensure that the property retains its market value.
“In these times you can only be successful if you deliver quality above all else,” says Jonald Bouwhuis, founder and CEO of the Bouwhuis Group. VJ spoke further about this with Shelly Klomp (34), Quality Manager Business & Innovation at Bouwhuis Group. In her role, how does she contribute to the improvement of processes, the connection between the teams and how does she monitor the quality of developers, architects, contractors and managers? And finally, answer the question: what does all this have to do with wellness?
“The Bouwhuis Group has grown tremendously recently. We currently have 20 residential projects completed and under management, and there are still many projects in the pipeline. The entire Bouwhuis Group now consists of 33 men and women. But you can’t grow a company just by taking on more staff; you also have to make sure that everyone understands each other and knows what’s going on. Laying down work processes is an example of this. Making agreements is not only about the content but also about processing them so that everyone is informed,” begins Shelly Klomp, Quality Manager Business & Innovation at the Bouwhuis Group.
Nineteen years after they were completed, the office buildings in the Rijnhuizen district on the Edisonbaan in Nieuwegein will undergo a major metamorphosis and will offer more than just accommodation for 240 households. VJ spoke with real estate entrepreneur Jonald Bouwhuis and development manager Gerard de Jager about the EdelWonen concept, which the Bouwhuis Group will realize in Nieuwegein and elsewhere, and why investing in the housing market is a good choice.
“I don’t like the term ’transformation’. I prefer to speak of redevelopment, because you are realizing something completely new,” says developer Jonald Bouwhuis of the Bouwhuis Group, “Transformation quickly sounds as if you could turn an office into a fully-fledged home with some thin plaster walls and a lick of paint. That is impossible. When we do something, we do it well. And that’s no different with the EdelPark project in Nieuwegein.”
Empty office towers in Maarssen become apartments
Three empty office towers in Maarssenbroek will be converted into almost three hundred apartments. Tenants can use the sauna, pool table and fitness room.
Stichtse Vecht has been struggling for years with an enormous number of empty, outdated office buildings. Slowly but surely this is changing. In Bisonspoor a complex was demolished last year, on the Planetenbaan 22 apartments were built in an empty office.
Now it is the turn of three high office towers in the Planetenbaan business park, near the Zuilense Ring. Real estate company Bouwhuis Group from Apeldoorn has bought the Corner Plaza complex and applies the self-developed concept Edelwonen. The former office floors are transformed into almost three hundred rental studios and apartments, ranging in price up to 800 euros.
