9:00: Koffie en bijpraten

Maandagochtend! We beginnen de dag om 9:15 vol energie in de team-meet. Samen lopen we door de projecten heen. De gevel van een school vol design-zonnepanelen, een villa en een groot distributiecentrum etc. De nieuwste gave ontwerpen passeren de revue. Eefiene en Oscar presenteren de nieuwste samples van de panelen.

Reinier presenteert een visie op energie-opwekkende bruggen welke hij samen met een genormeerd Amsterdams architectenbureau heeft ontwikkeld.

10:00 Na de morning-meet gaan we aan de slag. De achter constructie bestellen, een opbrengst check bij één van de projecten. Een nieuw ontwerpvoorstel maken.

12:30 We lunchen boven op het dakterras van het SDG house!
Niet iedereen luncht, want Jasper geeft nog een lunchlezing online aan een vastgoedontwikkelaar die bezig is met een tender op de Zuid As.

14:00 Het MT duikt onder begeleiding van een eindbaas uit het bedrijfsleven in een strategische kwartaal sessie. In de middag gaat iedere zijns weegs.

15:30 O.k. Nog even pingpongen tussendoor 😊 ( of onze eigen moestuin verzorgen.)

16:30 We sluiten af met interne meeting over de innovatietrajecten met TNO en de universiteit Utrecht.

17:30: Je gaat naar huis ( of soms blijf je hangen om voetbal te kijken, samen te eten, borrelen )
