Who are we?

At Wiegerinck, we have been thinking spatially for more than 70 years. For us, space is more than architectonic, it’s essential for exploring possibilities, answering questions and meeting our clients’ needs. We create space to think further and work together, so we can develop sustainable, humane and future-proof designs.

Rooted in science

Evidence-based design and the Healing Environment concept are fixed pillars for all our designs for the healthcare sector. A healing environment is one that reduces stress and anxiety and promotes patient well-being. While there is no shortage of opinions about healing environments, we are fortunate to have real, in-house expertise based on extensive scientific research and experience.

Sustainability. Wiegerinck-style.

Nowadays, sustainable building is a matter of course. In our opinion, however, sustainability in the Netherlands is too often considered in terms of energy consumption, CO2 and nitrogen. Our approach is more critical and focused on the long-term. We distinguish three phases:

  1. The extraction/production phase: We gather and assess all necessary data and raw materials in order to evaluate the total ecological footprint.
  2. The indoor environment phase: We consider health-related aspects such as air quality, light, emissions from paints, adhesives and plastics, the reuse of materials, and acoustics.
  3. The demolition phase: We make sure that harmful substances will not be released during the building’s demolition, whenever that may be.

BIM: offering overview and insight

Our Building Information Model (BIM) allows us to work out designs and coordinate projects together with clients and partners. While a sketch or a clear floor plan remain essential, BIM makes the design transparent for all parties involved via tools such as live video or VR.

BIM is a common denominator in every project, from tender to delivery. It provides an indispensable digital “dossier”, which facilitates effective collaboration and greatly reduces the risk of misunderstandings. Our cloud-based platform, which we are constantly developing, is accessible to everyone involved in the project or anyone who needs direct information about it. Reference solutions and 3D design standards (Basic ILS, ILS Design & Engineering) are an integral part of our BIM.

We work with BIM360, Autodesk Revit, Revit Server, Dynamo, Solibri and Enscape. In the coming years, we expect all kinds of new possibilities thanks to the emergence of smart algorithms.

Wiegerinck’s designs are regularly evaluated by expert juries. Although winning prizes is not our goal, we are always happy to receive recognition for our work.
