Mammoet's Main Office
Mammoet's Main Office "The Bollard" is located in Schiedam, the Netherlands and has a striking shape, which symbolizes strength, resolve and the home base - all terms with which Mammoet wishes to identify. Not only is the shape of the office remarkable, but so is its construction. In the Netherlands we are mainly accustomed to constructing buildings in a traditional way, at the ultimate location and in concrete. The Bollard, in contrast, is made entirely out of steel, with only the upper ten stories being made of concrete. What is more, the Bollard was not built at its ultimate location in Schiedam, but was constructed in its totality (including installations, cabling, windows, etc.) in a factory hall in Zwijndrecht. The big advantage of this approach is the enormous saving in building time, since all kinds of activities (such as the laying of the foundations and the construction of the building itself) can take place simultaneously. Also, the construction was not dependent on the weather, since the office was built inside a hall.
When the construction was completed, Mammoet moved its own head office itself by water and road to the Mammoet heavy-lift terminal in Schiedam, where the building was positioned at a prominent location on the quay adjoining the New Waterway.
The Mammoet heavy-lift terminal is situated at a unique location in Schiedam, on the New Waterway in the heart of the Rotterdam harbors and close to the North Sea. Thanks to the strategic position of this 8.5- hectare site, which includes a 10000 m2 quayside and a harbor crane with a 250-tonne lifting capacity, Mammoet is able to store all kinds of cargo, such as generators, transformers, reactors, steel constructions, etc. Other services can also be handled on request.
