A home that can withstand a blow or two
Jan Snel offers the so-called 'switch' homes for people who cannot stay in their homes during reinforcement work on their home in the North of the Netherlands, which is prone to earthquakes.
Our 60 years of experience in the construction sector have resulted in the development of these homes. We worked closely together with Zonneveld Engineers B.V. to develop these homes which are earthquake-proof because they are weighted in a number of essential places. The vibrations are absorbed by the home's cage construction. These homes do not need to be fitted with a 'base isolation' because the construction of our homes in this entire region meets the current Dutch Practical Directive (NPR) for earthquake-proof construction. The homes are manufactured in serial production in our factories in Montfoort and Eemshaven. This has enormous advantages; for example that we are not or hardly dependent on the weather. This means we can build more efficiently and faster. Our earthquake-proof homes can be built within 20 weeks.
Jan Snel provides fast, flexible and efficient housing
Our construction method offers unprecedented advantages for our clients. Whether you want to build a prefab home, looking for a fast-assemble home, permanent house, temporary emergency housing, student housing or migrant workers housing, at Jan Snel you come to the right place. Because projects are completed 30% to 50% earlier, you can achieve more efficiency from your project. The housing can be placed permanently, but also temporarily, so the housing can get back onto the market again afterwards.
