- After several years the company shifted its focus mainly to precast detailing work and during that period our Indian team worked on many Dutch precast building projects.

Van Boxsel Engineering – The Netherlands
Van Boxsel Engineering operates as an independent structural engineering consultancy firm based in the Netherlands. The company was founded in 1968 and has extensive experience in structural analysis, design and detailing of building structures.
From the very beginning our Indian team of WBK Engineering Services Pvt. Ltd. has been providing outsourcing services to the Dutch company Van Boxsel Engineering. Through the years several of our Indian employees have visited the Van Boxsel office in the Netherlands for additional training courses. These training courses consist of technical training related to software and precast detailing standards. Practical aspects of precast building design are also explained during visits to precast plants and construction sites in Europe. With the opening of the WBK Engineering Services office in India an important link has been established for the exchange of precast expertise, technology and training.
