World’s highest residential tower build using precast elements!
Rotterdam at the top. The 215-metre-high residential tower that will rise from the northern foot of the Erasmus bridge in the coming years will be entirely constructed from prefab elements. An innovative construction method for a building of this size. The Brabant company Byldis – until recently known as Hurks building components and engineering – will supply the material and assembly for construction firm BAM. The realisation of De Zalmhaven starts in October 2018.
‘People think they have a right to a terraced house with a garden, and this has to change’
215-metres-high, with almost 60 storeys. In just three years’ time, the new Zalmhaventoren in Rotterdam will be the highest residential tower in the Netherlands. The building will house mainly homes and offices, but also a restaurant and a club. The first pole of the complex is going into the ground today.
Highest tower in the Netherlands, the Zalmhaven tower in Rotterdam, started

Veldhoven’s Byldis builds the Netherlands’ highest tower, at 215 metres
VELDHOVEN - The Veldhoven-based construction company Byldis is to construct the Netherlands’ highest residential tower in Rotterdam. The 215-metre-high building will be entirely constructed from facade elements that are manufactured in the factory and assembled on site.
Byldis is the industrial construction components division of Hurks that became independent in 2017. The company previously built so-called precast residential towers in London, up to 110-metres-high. In terms of precast construction, the Rotterdam tower will be the highest in the world.
All in all, experts expect that the skyline of the Randstad will include many more high-rise buildings in 2040. The same is true for large cities further afield, believes Harm Tilman of the Architect. “Eindhoven, Maastricht and Groningen are also modern cities. The same development is taking place there too.”
