Creating a new pipe support system on the island of Amsterdam

Published on: 6 May 2021


IJburg Urban Development
The Netherlands I Amsterdam


IJburg is a large-scale urban development project on the outskirts of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Supporting the realisation of a significant urban extension with a size of 220 ha, which is developed on artificial islands, Walraven received the request to construct a pipe support system for the project.

Customer requirements

To enable the transportation of hot and cold water, a large diameter PE pipe-work had to be constructed. For economical and saving purposes, ground-coupled heat exchanger systems for residential use were selected. The contractor was using BIM methodology® to manage the project, and they asked Walraven to design a suitable pipe support system for this unique environment using Revit®.


IJburg-case-study-pipeUsing Revit® software, Walraven engineers produced consistent and complete model-based designs and documentation for the project. By using the integrated BIM® objects files, which contain the full
specifications for Walraven products, we developed an effective and high-quality pipe support solutions for the diverse pipe installations.

Followed by the preparation of drawings and calculations, Walraven
also prefabricated the system, which altogether ensured a fast, safe
and precise assembly as well as time and cost savings on site.

Installation type:

  • Cooling pipes
  • Heater pipes
