On 10th july 2013 works started for the building of stucent campus De Leidse Schans (also known as Yours Leiden). With a programme consisting of about 1800 student units and 208 starter homes, the campus will contribute significantly to the resolution of student housing shortage in the Leiden area. The six building blocks on the campus grounds, indicated with blocks A to F, will be developed in phases.

End of 2017 another 467 student houses were built on the Yours Leiden campus. In the factory of Ursem Modulaire Bouwsystemen, 456 PREFABRICATED BATHROOMS were produced for phase 2 of the project, on behalf of Schouten Techniek and in cooperation with Ballast Nedam, VORM and Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance.

For Ursem, phase 2 of the project consists of blocks F and E and respectively 211 and 245 bathrooms.

Easily accessible

socially sustainable campus

 

Yours Leiden
The Leidse Schans project, also known as Yours Leiden, involves the development, realisation and exploitation of abt. 1900 student houses, spread over a number of high-rise buildings. Furthermore abt. 200 starters homes, room for retail and hotel and catering industry will be added.

Campus (Y)OURS Leiden is the new place in Leiden for students, starters and existing home owners, conveniently located south of the historic centre and easily accessible by bike, car and public transport. The Leiden Lammenschans station is at walking distance and offers a direct connection with Utrecht Central and Leiden Central. A mixed living environment with a high quality appearance form the basis for a socially sustainable campus, expected to be completed in 2020.

 

FORTY BATHROOMS PER WEEK
For the construction of the first phase of De Leidse Schans, a conscious choice was made for prefabricated bathrooms. The building combination VORM and Ballast Nedam made a conscious choice for prefab, because it enables a considerable saving of construction time. Moreover, it means a guarantee for constant quality. Nearly all bathrooms were produced in series; only the ones situated in the inverted corners of the building were made-to-measure, because of the deviating measurements.

The prefabricated bathrooms are produced in series at the Ursem plant and meet all Building Code fire and noise requirements. On the outside of the bathrooms, installation company Schouten Techniek places a technical compartment with all necessary installations for central heating, ventilation, water and electricity. After testing and approval of the bathrooms they are wrapped in waterproof packaging material and prepared for transport to the building site.

The bathrooms will be delivered on the building site just-in-time, and hauled to the proper floor. To guarantee a massive floor quality, after the bathrooms are fitted on location, a sand-cement screed is applied, to be finished with floor tile.

Recente berichten in het process Yours phase 2

Today, phase two of student campus (Y)OURS has been festively opened by Minister Kajsa Ollongren. On behalf of partner Schouten Techniek BV we supplied 456 prefab bathrooms.

From week 11, the 211 apartments of Block F, in which our bathroom modules are incorporated, will be completed.

This is expected to take four weeks and we hope, of course, but we also have faith in smooth delivery.
