The Veenetië project is a research project into the technical and LCC feasibility of a floating residential area as a solution in areas with subsidence problems and potential flooding risk.
This research, based on a real life case in the province of Utrecht, has shown that the chosen approach creates a neighborhood that is flexible and does not suffer from sinking soil. It moves on the water and can therefore be used as a water buffer. This makes it a subsidence and climate-proof neighbourhood. Balance d'eau has contributed to this project as a prominent core team member and a financial support. This project was presented during the national congress on land subsidence in November 2019
