The city of Woerden is investigating the feasibility of a floating neighbourhood

The municipality of Woerden is located in an area that is sensitive to subsidence. Ground subsidence causes cracks in the road surface and broken sewers. The municipality has conducted research into floating construction as a solution in peat meadow areas.

After the previous collaboration between the municipality of Woerden and Balance d'eau in the Waterrijk Woerden project, Balance d'eau has now also been a collaboration partner in this feasibility study.

"Together, Veenetiëlays a solid foundation for taking the step towards developing a future-proof and floating neighborhood"
