Pile foundation for storage shed

1 shed24 piles

In the picturesque Beemster Polder, the “Nooit Gedacht” farmstead is being expanded with a new shed for the storage of equipment and materials.

The construction project for the shed has not proceeded without difficulty. One of the greatest challenges was preparing the building site. The delivery of materials and machinery had to take place via a causeway bridge on Rijperweg, which needed to be reinforced to bear the weight of the foundation machine.

Once the machine was positioned on the dragline mats, the work could commence: 24 precast piles of 220 x 220 millimeters and a length of approximately 12.5 meters form the basis for the new shed.

UNESCO World heritage

The Beemster Polder is a UNESCO World heritage site. The polder has retained its well-ordered landscape of fields, roads, canals, dykes, and settlements, laid out according to the principles of classical and Renaissance planning. The Beemster exemplifies how the Dutch have reclaimed large parts of the land to protect themselves from rising waters and to create new land for arable farming and livestock.

Farmhouses often represent a rich history and an important part of our rural heritage. A well-maintained farmstead can require years of care and dedication, and sometimes some renovation to breathe new life into these historic buildings. This is also the case here, in Middenbeemster, as the extension to the "Nooit Gedacht" farmstead from 1721 is a prime example of how modernisation can go hand in hand with the preservation of heritage.
