The construction projects were carried out on behalf of companies such as Electrabel, Alstom, Akzo, Ahold and their foreign subcontractors. The projects varied from building new power stations such as Maxima Centrale in Lelystad in collaboration with Alstom for Electrabel. NUON / Enercon in Eemshaven, Wind turbines in Flevoland, petrochemical projects on the Maasvlakte and more locally, seasonal flex workers houses for supermarket logistics centers.
For the realization of the first distribution center of fashion giant Inditex outside Spain in Lelystad, at the Lelystad Airport Business Park to be precise, we have successfully brokered homes to the various Inditex employees as well as the employees of subcontractors. The houses that we have in portfolio are also brokered to the companies that carry out the ironing work to the various countries where Zara’s clothing is delivered.
A number of these expats will become new residents of Lelystad and Almere. For Flevoland this means a new economy with new cultural changes and customs, such as language and eating / living habits.
Almere has a number of initiatives aimed at future employment and economic growth. The infrastructural projects must be ready for the Floriade world horticultural exhibition in 2022.
Lelystad is interesting because of the junction for traffic via road, rail and water. That is why many international groups choose Flevoland as their commercial base
