Synopsis

Challenges in the Dutch education sector, how to meet them, and what to learn from the UK?

The Dutch financial system for education differs from the UK. Centralized versus decentralized and split incentives are the most striking differences. But exactly this system creates challenges for solutions. Education buildings are relatively old, interior climate issues in primary and secondary schools are a big issue and budgets are low. Next to these issues Universities in the Netherlands are growing, partly due to a large number of international students. This has consequences for buildings and campus development within tight budgets. Add to these challenges the political choice of the Netherlands to stop using the Dutch gas shortly, and meeting the Paris goals for education in 2040, and see the difficulties our Education building and campus development sector is facing.

We will explain more about the system in the Netherlands and the challenges we meet. We will address the differences between the Netherlands and the UK system and the strong points of both countries. Next to that we will introduce some solution for efficient solutions in the Netherlands,

  • Building management BIM 7D, depicted by a specific case the Amsterdam Arena (Ajax Football Stadion)
  • We will introduce Masterplanning which we perform for a number of Universities in the Netherlands (depicted by examples from Amsterdam, Delft and Leiden)
