Strong, reliable and at the forefront

Voortman Steel Construction delivers construction projects to a high quality standard for the process industry. We build in our own right for industrial multinationals or in collaboration with EPC or other contractors. We deliver projects at home and abroad for the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, for waste incineration plants and in container terminals.

We deliver projects from engineering to implementation under our own management. We draw up a customised action plan for every project and identify opportunities and risks. We set the design and build processes up as efficiently as possible. In this way we ensure that the project proceeds in a streamlined manner, inconvenience is limited and there is minimal disruption to your production process.

Are you looking for a construction partner to take work off your hands? Then you won’t go wrong with us. Our integrated approach makes us the ideal partner for your project. We supply and assemble: the steel structure, other steel: stairs, platforms, fencing, the entire building shell (roof and wall cladding), prefab concrete and carry out other civil work related to the project.

At Voortman Steel Construction, we intend to be a reliable partner for our clients and customers. We do what we promise. Our service does not end on completion: we review the project jointly with you to see which points might be improved on a future occasion and to ensure that you are 100% satisfied. Our aim is to enter into long-term partnerships. We want to be the partner to whom you are happy to return for the next project!

Building together with a reliable partner

Voortman Steel Construction is a project-driven organisation that sets up the construction process as efficiently as possible so as to complete the project within the agreed schedule to a high quality standard. All processes from design to completion are seamlessly coordinated with one another. Voortman Steel Construction is ISO 9001 certified for the processes in order to assure quality.

Sales & Sales Engineering
The Sales Manager responsible conducts the entire procurement process and involves the right staff and knowhow in every request. Once we have assessed your request and any points which are not clear have been resolved, our Sales Engineers start the calculation. The Sales Engineering department calculates each project meticulously from start to finish resulting in the optimum value for money for you, the customer. Calculating using BIM will enable the IFC model to be imported, converted and calculated rapidly and proficiently. In addition to this, our own Designers and BIM Engineers will seek out smart alternatives and efficient systems where possible and desirable. We do this of course in consultation with you, as the customer. Efficient coordination and financial transparency, we believe these to be important aspects.

Project Management & Engineering
As soon as the project has been awarded to us, it will be transferred to the Project Manager responsible. The Project Manager together with his/her project team will be conducting the entire process, involving the right staff and knowhow in every project. This enables us to have a high-grade project team ready to attend to you, the customer, a to devote the appropriate attention to your process. We always strive together for the best result. During the engineering phase, all projects are worked through in our BIM Management system in CAD 3D systems such as Tekla and/or Revit. Our BIM Engineers make a complete 3D model of every project, with all the relevant information required for production and assembly. The model comprises geometry, section properties, temporary arrangements to ensure structural safety during the construction phase, joint types and materials for the structure. All departments work in the same model and add to it during development and delivery with the necessary and available data. There is very close collaboration between Sales Engineers, BIM Engineers, Structural Engineers and the Project Manager. Together, we lay the foundations for a project to a high quality standard.

Production
We start manufacturing the steel structure once the project has been worked out in its entirety and the materials are known. We have a production capacity of 30,000 tonnes a year with our sister company Voortman Steel Machinery’s automated machine inventory and our modern production site. The entire production process is set up for lean manufacturing and is controlled by BIM. In short: we are capable of delivering projects to a high quality standard flexibly and within a short timeframe.

In order to demonstrate the quality of products and services delivered, we are certified for: NEN EN 1090-1 (CE marking), Execution class EXC4, NEN EN ISO 9001, NEN EN ISO 3834-2 and NEN EN ISO 14001. In addition, steel structures are manufactured using the latest welding techniques under a certified quality assurance system for welding: NEN EN ISO 3834-2. This enables us to comply with the requirements for welding coordination personnel with extensive knowledge (IWE level) of preparation and inspection before, during and after welding.

Assembly
Several thousand tonnes of steel ship annually from Voortman Steel Construction production sites. These are shipped to all corners of the world in all shapes and sizes. The steel structures are assembled by expert and experienced assembly teams who are SCC Petrochemicals certified. We have our own assembly teams and are therefore independent of any third parties. This enables us to keep a grip on quality and the overall project schedule.

Good collaboration is important at all times but especially during the assembly phase. The Project Manager, work planners and assembly crews work in close collaboration. The schedule is monitored closely and quantitative and qualitative aspects are assessed constantly. In addition to the steel structure, we also look after the roof and façade cladding. And for your complete peace of mind, we are happy to carry out some additional tasks by way of extra service.

Think safe work safe

Quality, safety and sustainability are key concerns for us in everything we do. We strive constantly for improvement in these core areas. This is the only way we can consistently deliver the quality our customers expect, stand by our employees’ safety and ensure that our impact on the environment is as little as possible.

Our well-kept and tidy production facilities are symbolic of the way we work: with care and attention to detail. We work continuously on improving both our products and our organisation and working methods. We strive for the highest quality in all activities to be carried out.

Right from the preparatory phase of a project, we establish any potential risks affecting safety and the environment and we take steps to mitigate them. We have developed our ‘Think Safe – Work Safe’ programme to this end. This programme is identified with a logo that stands for the Voortman specialists who work safely, deliver quality and believe concern for the environment is important. That is how we work and we do so with a positive attitude.
