Harders Plaza in Harderwijk is a place that Pelecon knows very well. Years ago, we provided constructive advice for the transformation of an ice hockey hall into a go-kart track with a party center. This mainly concerned the parking deck beams that had to be installed in the old ice hockey hall in order to give the building a new function. Extra nice that we were also approached for the constructive advice of the new building at this location. The go-kart track and conference center have been demolished and have created space for phase 1 of a new shopping complex.
The new Praxis has now opened, the construction market is part of phase 1 of the new construction plan that is being realized in phases. Dirk van den Broek is moving to a space in phase 1 next to the Praxis, now this supermarket is still housed in a building on the location of phase 2. After the move, this building will be demolished and the construction of phase 2 will start, which will soon Lidl and Kwantum are coming.
It is nice to mention that the old frames of the ice hockey hall have been preserved. These serve as frames in Colpro’s new industrial hall in Almelo. After 40 years, the materials get a new and second life and 80 tons of wood from the incinerator has been saved! The property will be built completely remountable, so that all materials – including those added now – can be reused in the future.
