75 years Witteveen+Bos

Anniversary book

Published on {{ $filters.formatDateWithYear(1648677600000) }}

2021 was the year in which we celebrated our 75th anniversary, and to close out the year we sent all employees, on the last day of the year, an anniversary book specifically prepared for the occasion.

Taking as its starting point the notion that everything new comes from something old, the book describes the development of Witteveen+Bos. It does this using our colleagues’ experiences as the foundation. After all, they are the ones who give our consultancy and engineering firm its face each and every day. Their efforts put our DNA of specialist knowledge, collaboration and entrepreneurship into practice, and in doing so help to write the continuing story of Witteveen+Bos. That story began 75 years ago with an ordinary sheet of paper, on which engineers Willem Witteveen and Goosen Bos drew up their very first plans. 

The stories and projects included in our anniversary publication are only a selection of the many wonderful stories there are to tell. They offer a sense of the worldwide contribution we make in our fields of operation – water, infrastructure, the built environment, and construction – and they relate tales of personal growth and ambition. The book is can help share our story with new employees or give business associates a more complete picture of our company.

If you would like to read it, ask one of our employees for a copy or request one from communications@witteveenbos.com.
