  • operations against a baseline of 2008 by 2015. In terms of people development, we provide extensive opportunity for our staff and emphasize building futures through education and capacity building in community investments. Our Corporate Responsibility reporting and our Business Integrity Management System are externally audited in support of transparency and continuous improvement.

    Corporate Strategy

    Our strategy for serving clients is Local delivery of world-class solutions. We aim to be top player in our home countries and international player in select expertise positions. Our strategy rests on three pillars: Differentiation, Home markets and a One-company concept. Together these three pillars provide the path to achieving our goals.

    9Report of the Executive Board

    Strengths Expertise in water, and transportation,

    including our own investments in innovation and R&D.

    Culture of sustainable development and corporate responsibility.

    Strong local presence leveraged with international network.

    Known for nding integrated and multi-disciplinary solutions to complex issues.

    One-company concept.

    Opportunities Renewed focus on infrastructure as part of

    government stimulus packages. Impact of climate change on ooding and

    the availability of fresh water. Population growth and higher standards of

    living exponentially increase demand for energy, water and mobility.

    Strong development of eastern economies.

    Weaknesses Low prole approach, resulting in

    insufcient exposure of capabilities. Responsiveness and efciency must be

    improved in parts of our organization. Undercapitalizing on our innovations. Lower protability related to portfolio mix

    and a tendency to go beyond scope.

    Threats Economic slowdown. Projects are cancelled

    or delayed and prices are under pressure. Consolidation of mid-sized competitors and

    new entries increases competition in our home markets.

    Labor markets for top talent remain tight. Business integrity pressures.

    Green US Consulate in China

    Head office energy efficiency rating from G to AIn renovating its head office in Amersfoort, DHV is improving its energy efficiency rating from G to A. That is quite an accomplishment if you consider that the building is nearly 40 years old. De key is the integral approach: we are connecting the faade, roof and installations to one another. The savings to be achieved are tremendous. Once the renovation is finished, the total gas consumption will be 75% lower than is currently the case, and electricity usage will be reduced by 25%. The CO2 emissions of the building will be 41% lower as a result. The entire renovation will be completed in January 2011. DHV is responsible for the entire design and project management of this renovation project.

    Green US Consulate in ChinaThe new consulate compound in Guangzhou, China, will be the US State Departments first LEED certified diplomatic facility abroad. DHV is the consultant for all green building features and will manage the LEED (silver) certification process. DHV forms an integrated team with contractor China Huashi, and is responsible for streamlining communication between the contractor and the client. DHV will also ensure that the compound is built with high degrees of quality and in compliance with US codes and standards.

    Wind turbine yields significant environmental gainsA 60% decrease in total annual electric energy consumption and a CO2 reduction of 3,400 tons a year. These gains are enjoyed by the SC Johnson company as a result of their new wind turbine. Contributions by DHV included a feasibility study and assistance with the tender process and construction. This extremely durable turbine enables the company to be less dependent on external energy supply. DHV calculations indicate that several energy-intensive companies may qualify for an alternative energy source.

    Theater meets acoustic challengesThe new Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas, commissioned by the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, is located near a busy highway and under a flight path. With its impressive glass facades on three sides, the design presented an interesting acoustic challenge. DHV ensured that the theater meets the highest acoustic standards by using a high-tech solution which combines glass, sound-proof foil and air to keep out noise, resulting in a theater where you can hear a pin drop. DHV was also responsible for the acoustics within the main auditorium.

    Optimal design solar cell plant DHV created the complete design, including architecture, construction technique and all installations, for the new plant of Belgian solar cell manufacturer Photovoltech. Sustainable water and energy saving solutions were incorporated into the design of this new 26,500 m2 plant. Using its extensive knowledge of the processes and installations, DHV translated the high standards that Photovoltech maintains for its production process into an optimal plant design.

    Modern office complex fits like a gloveThe Outlook, a new office complex at Schiphol airport in the Netherlands literally fits right in with this dynamic airport. One of the challenges faced by DHV during construction was that the 3-level building, including a 2-level underground parking garage, was to be constructed less than 9 feet away from the main rail tunnel. DHV prepared a thorough risk analysis, so that the client, Schiphol Real Estate, was able to alleviate concerns on the part of the tunnel owner, ProRail.
