Masters of construction

Our expertise

Precast concrete

Modular construction in a conditioned factory environment, in which construction is done in a standardized and automated manner, contributes to a safer, more predictable and more efficient execution. It is not without reason that contractors and clients are increasingly opting for this conceptual construction method.

Modular construction means LEAN construction: all activities are coordinated in the most efficient way. The goal is a high-quality end product for the client. Activities that do not directly contribute to this are prevented.

The success factor is experienced professionals who ensure that the various facets of this process run optimally.

For each job, a project coordinator from De Gilde Groep analyzes and inventorises the production process. The goal is to get a good idea of ​​which operations are performed in the process. Often these are operations performed by the following functions:

  • Gantry crane operators
  • Overhead crane operators
  • Mold makers
  • Surveyors
  • Concrete workers
  • Operators
  • Pourers
  • Finishers

With years of experience in the precast concrete sector and the large network of De Gilde Groep, you will have access to a large group of professionals with demonstrable experience in cooperation with us. Our professionals can be deployed throughout The Netherlands.

With our approach, we ensure that you can operate very flexibly and that you have excellent trained professionals with a relatively short training period. Professionals who make it possible to produce according to the principles of LEAN construction in a safe, healthy and high-quality manner.

Civil & industrial construction

Construction and maintenance of the Dutch delta and infrastructure network requires an integrated approach and excellent cooperation between main contractors, subcontractors and clients such as Rijkswaterstaat, Prorail, water authorities, provinces and municipalities. The construction of bridges, locks, power stations, factories, tunnels, aqueducts and wind farms, among other things, has a direct impact on the environment. Collaboration between all stakeholders is therefore the key to success.

With the changing division of roles between client and main contractor – with the latter being increasingly responsible for financing, design, construction and maintenance – the responsibility of the main contractor has increased significantly in recent years.

The actual realization of a work is only part of the entire assignment and that makes it essential that the right expertise is available at the right time. Chain cooperation requires partners with extensive knowledge of civil and industrial construction.

It is not uncommon for concrete works to be built under great time pressure. As a contractor, you therefore want to quickly have access to skilled professionals who can be deployed immediately and can work in a safe, qualitative and productive way. Because you are involved in many more facets of the construction process, you want to be relieved as much as possible about matters related to the deployment of skilled personnel. At De Gilde Groep we understand this.

In order to have clear the principles of the project and the precise activities, we make an inventory of all activities in terms of technical content in advance with the project management and the execution team of your project. Think of the execution cycle, formwork systems, shift layout, etcetera.


In addition, we also always discuss the other principles, such as SROI, accommodation, communication lines and the guidance and equipment level of our professionals. Based on this, we know which functions and roles are required for your project.

You can think of:

  • (Assistant) site manager
  • Foremen
  • Concrete carpenters
  • Building helps
  • Finishers
  • Braiders
  • Crane operators
  • Riggers

Thanks to our many years of experience on both small and large complex projects in civil and industrial construction, you will quickly have a large group of flexible professionals.

Residential & utility construction

An enormous construction task awaits in residential and utility construction in the coming years. On the one hand, there is the increasing housing shortage and, on the other, there is the energy transition that requires a CO2-neutral building stock. In order to fulfill this task, project developers, authorities and (main) contractors must work together optimally.

The role and responsibilities of main contractors have changed a lot in recent years. Main contractors are much more often a full service provider where design, finishing, furnishing and maintenance / management also form part of the total assignment. For the various areas of expertise, a main contractor must therefore be able to call on chain partners who are specialized in one or more parts of these assignments.
