Abstract:For the project of constructing a resting facility for inland shippers at ‘De Bijenwaard’ in ‘Spijk’, Rijkswaterstaat has the mission to work with a small team. Therefore, a lot of the engineering services must be executed by a market player. The intention of this pilot project of RWS is that these tasks will be executed by one market player that is working integral in terms of disciplines as well as project stages, using the Best Value Approach and the IPM method. All project stages must be covered by this market player; from preparation until completion of the construction. Another goal of RWS, apart from working with less own staff, is to make optimal use of the knowledge and output a market player can deliver. Royal HaskoningDHV won the tender in 2017 and is connected to this project for over 5 years. Due to a new way of working together, different implications can arise. Developments in construction, such as the integral approach or projects and change from classical client/vendor relationship towards an integral team, will be used to place this research in the context of the current situation. This research identifies the main structure and implications while contracting the engineering services for a long period with an engineering firm in the lead.
