RAVAM CV commissioned 520 student flats, named AmstelHome, which Jan Snel constructed in Amsterdam in partnership with Student Experience. The first pile was driven on 19 January 2015 and the project was completed on 26 August 2015. Jan Snel accomplished this total project, our second big student complex after Ravel Residence, in nine months.
In addition to the 520 student apartments, the building has a laundry, a catering facility and a full-size basketball court on the roof. The student complex, which will stand for at least 12 years, has a gross floor area of about 16,000 m2 spread over five floors. Students can enjoy the use of a communal garden in the centre.
All the apartments are equipped with a kitchen and bathroom, and each has a floor area of about 21 m2. There are two types of apartments, one type being the same as in Ravel Residence. In terms of the systems, Jan Snel delivered a customised solution without connection to the district heating system.
