When analyzing the safety of heritage buildings, the focus is usually on the stability of load-bearing structural elements. Little or no attention is then given to the performance of structural elements whose main purpose is to support the façade panels or decorative objects, such as gables and statues. Damage that can develop during the years due to aging or environmental effect in iron or steel anchorage can lead not only to deterioration of decorative objects that they support, but also to the detachment of significant material portions and their falling from the building. Even when not relevant for the stability of the building itself, such failures can endanger heritage value of the building and harm people in its surroundings. At the present, there is a lack of knowledge about the anchorage systems for natural stone façade panels used in modern heritage buildings in The Netherlands. This project is part of 4-years research project “MonumentenKennis”, which aims to increase level of this knowledge and develop an inspection protocol for dealing with heritage buildings that have anchorage problem.

The assignment

The intern will study three aspects of the project: anchorage type, their pathology and practical issues that are encountered by owners and/or restauration companies. To fulfil this, intern will travel to different locations in Netherlands to make inspections of several heritage buildings that were built after 1950’s and analyze them as case studies.


We are looking for a student in the last phase of the Civil Engineering or Architectural Engineering studies. Sensitivity and passion for the heritage structures are the values that we see important for performing well during this project. Knowledge and/or experience of structural analysis of heritage structures is considered as big advantage. Professional proficiency of Dutch language is obligatory pre-request, since the intern will speak on daily basis with owners of buildings, heritage consultants and small companies owners in Dutch. Also, reporting and dissemination of results will be in Dutch. Communication with project members will be both in Dutch and English. The interviews for the internship will be conducted both in Dutch and English.

The internship should last for minimum 3 months and be completed before 1st August 2018.

Transformation/ Architecture/ Landscape / Urban Design
We believe in trees and design projects that grow old beautifully and get more lush with the day.
We are a multidisciplinary team of landscapers, urban designers, city strategists, architects and engineers that built up to fill the vacated crack between planning and architecture. Being educated in pluralism of the built environment we practice interdisciplinary design with focus on ecological sensibility and sustainability.
Our designs envision opportunities for city and landscape improvement on all planning scales through all stages of development, from large outdoor landscapes to city masterplans and cozy small-scale spaces. Through the concept stage and developing the typology to detailed projects, materials and botanics to the very realisation and maintenance.
To provide top quality products to our clients we have partnered up with experts beyond the field of design. Cost calculation, structural engineering, interior botanics, real estate agents, botanical expertise, business management support, project development, interior architecture are all part of our daily network.
The studio name LapLab is an aggregation between the founders last name and the abbreviation from the word “laboratory”. The latter originates from the latin “laborare” which stands for ‘work’, alias ‘labor’, which stands for ‘effort’. To work with effort, to allow the experiment, to obtain experiences and keep on researching through design, thats what’s in the name and what we stand for every day.
•Bachelor degree in Architecture / Urban Design

•Strong graphic and design talent
•Fluent in English required, Dutch speaking preferred
