The building is home to the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, has 21-storeys and rises to 104m, making it one of the tallest buildings in The Hague.

The Requirement

Contractors JP van Eesteren and building owners Deka Germany were presented with a major challenge when safe access was required for engineers to refurbish the 35m high, twin triangular pitch roofs.

Eurosafe Solutions were awarded the contract to design and implement a fall protection system, using rope access techniques to allow construction work to be carried out safely on the steep sided roofs on this iconic building due to the companies expertise in designing and installing fall protection systems on many iconic buildings across the UK, Europe and worldwide.

The in-house Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) team are highly training  and significant investment was made to ensure that the team could install the Kalzip standing seam roofing system to meet the specialist requirements of this job. This specialist training in Kalzip-approved techniques enabled the contractors to work safely at these extraordinary heights.

We called upon Eurosafe Solutions as a safe means of accessing the roof was required, which required a high level of expertise. We were extremely impressed with the high quality of work delivered by the company, which minimised the risks whilst working at these extreme heights. Their team was very professional, highly skilled and communicated well at all times with us and other parties, ensuring very safe working practices on site.”
