Engineering firm Hektec from Zuidoostbeemster, part of Van't Hek Group, offers a total package in the field of deep foundations. They specialize in engineering, monotoring and control testing. Their experience enables them to focus on creative and economical solutions in the field of foundations, constructions pits and retaining walls.

Because they are connected with Gebr. van't Hek, De Waalpaal and Kuipers Funderingstechnieken, they think practically and their advice is both feasible and easy to implement. 

Great savings in time and money

"For the entire process, from pile design to delivery of the pile file, we within the Hek Group researched which processes needed to fit together and which software was available on the market for this purpose," explains Teamleader Engineering Arie-Jan Tol. "For the design process, we then ended up with CloudPiling, for us a completely justified choice. Simply because we not only advise, but also think along with the implementation. That very fact makes CloudPiling so useful and powerful for us. Moreover, there is a project and CRM link, allowing CloudPiling to be built into Hekgroep's existing structure. CloudPiling also generates the material quantities for execution. This allows us to skip an entire step in the process in the near future. That will result in nice savings. In time as well as money. Finally, the cooperation is also very nice. They think along and respond quickly."

About the cooperation

Patrick Ijnsen - CEO Van't Hek Groep: "Thank you Michelle Vanhove, Thomas Zwaenepoel and other CloudPiling colleagues for your flexibility, energy and commitment in laying the foundation for this collaboration."

Jurian Borst - Strategic Information Manager Van't Hek Groep: "CloudPiling combines state-of-the-art software, practical experience on site and geotechnical knowledge in a user-friendly platform."

A glimpse of the future

Their goal is to calculate and execute as many projects as possible using CloudPiling. Building a database of best practices and integrating sustainability factors into designs are important aspects of modern engineering work and it is precisely these elements that the Van't Hek Group values highly. 

In addition, they will further integrate the software into their workflows to realize even more efficiency and savings.
