A thorough preparation makes the difference

A few weeks ago we started working on the new business premises for Bearbit Studios in Voorhout (NL), only two weeks after the environmental permit was granted! This is for a large part due to our working method in the design phase.


Our client Bearbit Studios had made an initial design for the building in our hall configurator. We have further elaborated this in consultation with them and the building aesthetics committee. During this intensive preparation process, we kept our client and the municipality informed. This was experienced as very pleasant by all parties. We optimized the design based on the wishes of Bearbit Studios. At the same time, we took into account the requirements for the permit application. At the beginning of May, we submitted the application for the environmental permit, with the accompanying nitrogen calculation. Partly as a result of our working method, we were able to start construction only two weeks after the permit was received.


From next week, the high-quality building will really take shape: then we will start assembling the steel structure. The building has a total area of 585 square meters and consists of a workshop and test room with a storage hall and office space. The finish includes vertical sandwich panels and aluminium frames. The eye-catcher is a large curtain wall at the entrance. Completion of the turnkey building is scheduled for January 2021.


Bearbit Studios develops games for mobile phones. Their most famous game, Smashy Road, has been downloaded more than 50 million times worldwide. The new business premises offer the successful app developer plenty of room for further growth, so that the company is ready for the future. In addition to the development of new games, R&D for robotics takes place in the office. In the test room there will be a game environment for virtual and augmented reality and the use of animations. The workshop has been made suitable for producing prototypes by means of 3D printing.
