By working with organizations that, like us, know the construction sector through and through, we contribute to collaboration and digitization.

Since our foundation, we have been involved in various organizations in construction and IT. Acceleration and digitization of construction requires cooperation. That is why we consciously look for partners who complement us.

Ketenstandaard

The Ketenstandaard Foundation (Dutch for Chain Standards) maintains various standards for construction. STABU2 and NL/SfB are important to Utopis Specifications and our clients use ETIM and DICO to classify and distribute product data. Our roots lie in the development of STABU and so the contacts between both organizations can be called warm.

C.R.O.W.

Many of Utopis’ clients have a RAW specification service. RAW is maintained by the CROW, the knowledge institute for ground, road and hydraulic engineering in The Netherlands.

Providers

Together with Bit and CSN, we ensure that Utopis remains up and running. Bit’s data center is CO2 neutral and belongs to the top level providers.

Bouwspex

Together with Ketenstandaard and KOMO we maintain the search portal Bouwspex.nl. The online portal, formerly known as Bestekservices.nl, is successful in distributing construction specifications. The index contains references to product specifications, system solutions, specification texts and certificates from almost all suppliers in the construction industry.

Branch organisaties

Utopis is a member of the BNB, the Professional Association for Dutch Building Specification Experts, and FBS, an interest group for manufacturers of building materials. We helped set up both associations and we are still closely involved.

You get a lot of freedom here, I can put my own ideas and input here..

Jeroen Houdé

Jeroen works at ZeeBoer as a front-end developer. You can read his story below.

Jeroen was working as a warehouse employee in 2005 when he was asked if he knew anyone who wanted to work as a front-end developer at ZeeBoer. With a background in middle automation, that seemed interesting to him, so he applied and was hired. This was quite a big step. In the beginning he had to learn a lot and at ZeeBoer he was given plenty of room for this.

The way of working at ZeeBoer really appeals to Jeroen: “You get a lot of freedom here. Together with the project leaders, we discuss every two weeks what needs to be done and what the result should be. Then I can get to work. I get a lot of freedom. , I can put my ideas and own input into it. In between, we regularly visit each other to discuss progress and make adjustments.”

He made the appearance for at least 90% of the 120 customers. Besides design, he also picks up on other things. “If you have ideas about your career, this will be discussed openly. For example, training and courses can be followed if necessary.”

Jeroen thinks the atmosphere at ZeeBoer is very good, he always enjoys going to work. “There is a lot of mutual interest in each other. For example, we always inform about each other’s weekends. I myself like to make a trip on the Veluwe on my racing bike. At noon we have lunch together and Friday is French fries day with us.”
