Turner & Townsend in the Netherlands
The biggest challenge for the real estate sector in the Netherlands is to accelerate the pace of sustainable solutions for the built environment in an almost over-stressed market. At the same time, the Netherlands must remain accessible for which increased infrastructure capacity and enhanced usage of infrastructure are inevitable.
The real estate sector faces a difficult challenge, as there is a growing shortage of housing both quantitative and qualitative. In the short term, organisations want to adapt their offices to new trends and simultaneously increase sustainability of office space. The industry requires capacity expansion to meet the increasing demands for products. The growing economy is causing capacity shortages in our infrastructure, both on road, rail, water and air.
There is a continuous drive for increasing sustainability; we must reduce the use of natural gas for heating purposes and ultimately become completely independent of natural gas. There is a need to find smart solutions to reduce CO2 production and reduce particulate matter emissions. Investing in sustainable energy production is therefore inevitable and circularity is no longer a hobby, but becomes a necessity.
In the recent economic crisis, all parties involved in real estate and infrastructure have reduced their production capacity. This has resulted in a shortage of personnel and materials putting an ever-increasing strain on the market. As a result, prices are rising and the development and realisation period of projects increases.
