Working for Jan De Nul really means daily improvement


Elien graduated with a master’s degree in industrial engineering and construction. She got straight down to work and, shortly afterwards, was working as site manager for the construction of a School van Morgen (School of the Future) in Assenede. For sixteen months, she led the building work with distinction. ‘I was surprised how much responsibility I was given as a starter. My hunger to learn and my curiosity ensured that I learnt an incredible amount each day. Working for the Jan De Nul really means daily improvement!’


Elien has a lot of experience in managing architecturally complex projects: "An impressive architectural and structural building is a daily challenge. Challenging for various reasons and in the various phases of the construction: the foundation and structural work, the painting, plastering, and fitting floors and windows. It’s all built according to the magnificent design of the architects so that the building radiates a sense of peace and quiet." Simplicity and peace and quiet often require the most complex interventions.
