Recap Excursion Peutz Laboratory

Thursday the 23th of March Mollier is invited at Peutz to visit their laboratories in Molenhoek near the German border. After a train ride of one and a half hour, the group of 15 people found itself at an abandoned train station in the middle of nowhere. A 5 minutes’ walk from Peutz’ experimental area. At arrival a luxurious tea table was waiting for the participants, which was arranged very well. The afternoon started with a short introduction of the director, Casper Esmeijer, and three additional presentations about Peutz, the laboratory and work within the company. The first presentation was given by Albert Alders. The presentation took us along the many projects within the different disciplines, Peutz is invested in. The last two presentations were about working within the company. One of these presentations was given by an alumnus of Mollier, Manon Derks. Which was interested because of her insight in Peutz and the link with our master.

After the presentations we had a small break, which was followed by the visitation of the laboratories. We visited two climate chambers, three interconnected rooms for acoustical measurements, an anechoic chamber, the model room with different scale models for acoustical measurements, the pyrotechnic oven, the fire safety laboratory and the wind tunnel.

We want to thank Vera van der Berg for this interesting opportunity, to get insight in the company and facilities. We also want to thank everybody who presented and took us on the tour through the facilities. We had a great afternoon!

 

 

Peutz is a group of independent consultants specialised in a wide range of fields related to the design and building of any type of architectural or industrial development. Specialities range from acoustics, building physics and physics of urban design, noise control, and environmental technology to fire safety, sustainability and the optimisation of working conditions.

The excursion last friday was very interesting,! Together with CHEOPS, Studievereniging Bouwkunde we have organised a trip to one of Netherlands` most interesting music venues. One of the main goals of the trip is to introduce bachelor students to the world of building physics in practice and show them where architecture meets building physics. The 28 participants of the excursion was a perfect blend of bachelor students and BPS master students. Thank you all very much for joining us!

The 21st board would like to thank CHEOPS for this amazing collaboration. We are also very thankful for the very interesting, passionate and educational presentations by Jan Decker from AGS Architekten & Planners BV and Maarten Luykx from Peutz.

Recap of Mollier @ JPV Business Festival 2017

Thank you all for joining us on ‘Jong Professionals Verenigd Business Festival 2017’ organized by TVVL!
 
The morning started early as the festival kick-off was around 08:00. This kick-off keynote speech was held by Thomas Rau, talking about the Universal Rights of Materials. An interesting conversation where the use of materials in our current society was evaluated and how this could/should change in the future.
 
Throughout the rest of the day, several other speakers talked about the implementation of big data for Strukton, the use of virtual reality in the built environment, the future and challenges of social robots and many other interesting and thoughtful subjects.
 
Parallel to these presentations, there was also the possibility to drive in a F1 simulator, experience virtual reality with the Microsoft Hololens and the Oculus Rift, make your own electronical battery eater shaped like a doggie or just chatting with likeminded people.
 
                                          
The day ended with keynote speaker Martijn Aslander, stand-up philosopher and creative mind. A talk about using no money to get things done, avoiding bureaucracy and organizing things faster and more efficient. In the end, our own David went home with a signed copy of Thomas Rau`s book for the best question asked.
 
We as Mollier enjoyed the event a lot and hope to see you all at the next event!
