Egeraat collaborates with IOB in new company

Less than one month ago the internationally acclaimed architect was declared bankrupt having to shut down his firm, Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects BV. Two weeks later he announced the formation of another firm named Designed by Erick van Egeraat BV. In the third revelation in a month, Egeraat and engineering firm IOB and have announced the joint establishment of EMEM IOB (Nederland) BV.

Their new company will focus on the execution of working drawings and documentation for planning permits and tenders for the designs of Erick van Egeraat which he was able to retrieve from his original practise. EMEM IOB will work closely together with recently established Designed by Erick van Egeraat; both companies will be housed not far from each other in Rotterdam.

Errol Ooft, director of IOB: "We were looking for greater challenges to offer our employees. This cooperation with Erick van Egeraat provides just that!"

Egeraat will use EMEM IOB and its 160 employees for valuable support for his architect's studio: "Especially in the current economic climate it is essential to be able to count on a solid partner who is capable of realizing our ambitious projects,"said Egeraat.

In order to achieve efficient and fully integrated designs, EMEM IOB will assist in the design stages of projects with structural and MEP engineering and the calculation of building costs.
