On Goeree-Overflakkee housing association Woongoed GO has been working with healthcare providers for years to obtain a different approach to elderly care. This applied to both the ‘hardware’ (buildings) and ‘software’ (health care). One of the innovative projects on the island is the completion of the multifunctional residential care centre ‘Ebbe en Vloed’ in Oude-Tonge. This complex is a beautiful result of what was meant by the modernisation of the National Act on Exceptional Medical Expenses (‘AWBZ’), i.e. greater independence for the elderly and the disabled, small-scale housing for people who need special care and comfortable and affordable housing for seniors. All this embedded in the district and in cooperation with other healthcare providers.

Scale of the project:

–          58 independent apartments with care facilities;

–          7 group homes for the elderly with psychogeriatric problems;

–          12 hotel rooms with care;

–          20 apartments for people with a mental or physical disability;

–          Infant welfare centre 0 – 4 years old;

–          Office home care;

–          Primary physiotherapy practice;

–          Wellbeing facilities: restaurant, day care, hairdresser’s, shop, meditation centre with room for a bier.

In cooperation with Flexglass, Matel Metaal delivered this beautiful pergola construction for the project. The steel profiles are strong, durable, authentic and low-maintenance. Application of steelwork gives the pergola a powerful appearance. It is therefore not strange why more and more architects work with steel profiles, doors and window frames.

Matel Metaal offers a large variety of standard metal profiles. With these steel profiles as a foundation you can carry out your project in any desired form. We would like to advise you on technical feasibility and we can do in-house steel and glass calculations. You can expect decent advice in the field of steel frames, doors and window frames with glass and/or other materials.
