Construction of FISO tower and passenger terminal on St. Eustatius

Commissioned by Rijkswaterstaat, Van Boekel Bouw & Infra B.V. is building a new FISO tower and a passenger terminal. This project, titled ‘’Construction of the FISO (Flight Information Service Office) tower and passenger terminal in St. Eustatius” includes the construction of the new passenger terminal and a new control tower. The new passenger terminal and the control tower are located on two different construction sites, separated by the current passenger terminal. The current passenger terminal and control tower will remain operational during the construction process, which will require sophisticated traffic management.

Van Boekel is helping to rebuild the island of St. Eustatius, which was heavily damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria

In September 2017, hurricanes Irma and Maria severely damaged the infrastructure of the island of St. Eustatius, including the passenger terminal of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Airport. The building had already been in need of maintenance, but the decision was made to replace it entirely after the hurricane hit.

As the head contractor, Van Boekel Bouw & Infra is responsible for the implementation design and realisation of the entire civil, structural, mechanical & electrical scope.

Van Boekel Bouw & Infra changed its course a few years ago, shifting our focus to multidisciplinary concrete projects in the civil and non-residential construction sectors. We started to emphasise Best Value Procurement (BVP) projects, which enabled us to escape the low-cost market. This change of course has netted Van Boekel Bouw & Infra new clients, whilst enabling us to specialise in new types of projects and contracts, such as UAV-gc, and expanding our work area in the Netherlands and abroad.  Our organisation and employees worked hard to make this transition into a success, focusing on acquiring new clients and completing new projects.
