Rijkswaterstaat has introduced the two-stage model in the Dutch construction industry in order to reduce risks in large and complex projects (Rijkswaterstaat, 2020a). However, it is also possible that the two-stage model can influence the sustainability of infrastructure projects since the risks are reduced and a different way of collaboration...

Coastal and offshore infrastructure must be designed to withstand extreme wave-induced loading conditions. Extreme Value Analysis (EVA) is often employed to infer probabilistic distributions that provide information about extreme design conditions. In traditional practices, EVA is performed under the assumption of stationarity. This means that...

The building permit process in the Netherlands is mostly digitalized, however, there are still some issues. A downsize of information, the manual checking from the municipality, and the duration of the process are some of these issues. To overcome these issues information between 3D building design models, so-called Building Information Modeling...

The migration of different ethnic groups into an urban ecosystem over generations can lend to diversity and religious plurality. As people migrate from their homeland, they bring with them their culture and mould their surroundings into something that emulates ‘home’.

Data on the number of floors is required for a variety of applications, ranging from energy demand estimation to flood response plans. Despite this, open data on the number of floors is currently not available at a nationwide level in the Netherlands. This means that it must be inferred from other available data. Automatic methods usually...

Mede als gevolg van grote problemen op de woningmarkt en in het bijzonder het grote woningtekort is er tegenwoordig weer veel aandacht voor het wonen in zowel de pers als de politiek. Na een jarenlange focus op meer marktwerking en decentralisatie lijkt de rijksoverheid recent weer bereid om meer verantwoordelijkheid te nemen. In deze bijdrage...

The concept of the Open Society appeared in the CIAM discourse of the 1950s as an attempt to create condition in the city for society to prosper. These good intentions at the theoretical level did not always translate into success stories in practice, and some of the consequences of such a gap can be still felt today, amplified by multiple...

While the wilderness conservation movement continues to grow on an international scale, a wilderness conservation system is steadily being established in China. However, as urbanization continues to accelerate, the exploitation of natural wilderness spaces in cities is inevitable. How to preserve and design wilderness as much as possible within...

Legislation is seen both as a problem and a solution for the lengthy process of spatial decision-making. The new Environment and Planning Act aims to speed up and improve decision-making on spatial projects. That sounds promising as an answer to the housing shortage. Can we indeed expect the Act to speed up housing projects? Will legal problems...

The Meuse river in the Netherlands has been made navigable by the construction of a cascade of seven low head weirs. Because of environmental regulations, hydropower facilities exist at only two weirs. This implies the full hydropower potential of the Meuse cascade is not utilized. By using pump-turbines the river sections upstream of the weirs...

We present an overview of induced seismicity due to subsurface engineering in the Netherlands. Our overview includes events induced by gas extraction, underground gas storage, geothermal heat extraction, salt solution mining and post-mining water ingress. Compared to natural seismicity, induced events are usually small (magnitudes ≤ 4.0)....
