Daiwa House Modular Europe signs building contract for student homes in Eindhoven

15 Jun 2022

Construction company Daiwa House Modular Europe signed the building contract for the construction of 78 semi-permanent student homes in Eindhoven at Provada, the largest annual real estate trade fair in the Netherlands. The first students should be able to move in around Christmas.

The modular builder will commence the new project in collaboration with Eindhoven housing association Woonbedrijf in September. The new homes are being built on Berenkuil, close to the Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Sciences. The fully furnished self-contained homes, with their own bathrooms and kitchens, are being manufactured in the Daiwa House Modular Europe factory and will come with energy label B.

There are already 300 completed student homes on the same grounds; the 78 new homes will be an addition to this earlier project. Harry van Zandwijk, CEO of Daiwa House Modular Europe, is delighted with the agreement: “It is good to see we are responding quickly to the shortage of student homes in this Brabantian university city with this project. I think it is wonderful that we can offer Dutch and international students a comfortable living space during their studies. This again shows that flexible and sustainable construction is the solution to the housing shortage and at the same time, we are providing a high-quality housing concept appropriate for the living environment.”
