Quality first

We do it well, or we don’t do it at all. In everything we do, we work meticulously to achieve a result that satisfies all requirements: the clients’, our own, and that of society. Quality is embedded in our genes and empowers us to design the highest-quality structures in the world. We create solutions that really work. Solutions that genuinely benefit society. Quality always comes first.

Together, we achieve the utmost

We work together with each other and our clients to deliver the best solutions; socially and respectfully. We listen to our clients. To the real problem. Where is the demand? Where is help needed? We draw on our colleagues’ knowledge and in-house expertise across all disciplines and markets – offshore, industry and maritime, infrastructure, construction and water. We share our ideas, challenge each other with critical questions, and achieve results. Together, we achieve the utmost.

Getting things done

We solve it, we deliver the best solution. For the project. For the client. For Iv. And indeed, for the world. We prefer short lines of communication and a pragmatic approach. We won’t stop until it really works. Impossible missions do not exist on our radar. We create working solutions for the most complex of problems. And: our solutions deliver results. That result is what counts for us.

Passionate about technology since 1949

It all started very small in an attic in Rotterdam, this is where Henk Veth founded the Engineering and Architects firm, H. Veth in 1949. Ever since the very first drawings were made here, Iv devises technical solutions for projects of any size and complexity. Our employees are technicians of the highest level who with great pleasure, puzzle their way through almost impossible challenges. They are deeply involved in the (social) issues presented by our clients and work with great passion to achieve innovative solutions for them. In nine offices worldwide and with almost 1200 employees and seven divisions whereby each is a specialist in their own specific sector, Iv is now one of the top 10 Dutch engineering companies.

They know exactly what is at play in each specific market and understand the needs behind the demand. Our divisions have the feel of a small to medium-sized company, with short lines of communication and few layers of management, but with the advantage of being part of a large professional organisation. That’s how Iv is organised: an expert for every market.
