The CBR (Centraal Bureau Rijvaardigheidsbewijzen) - Central Office of Driving Certification, is responsible for conducting driving exams in the Netherlands for all motor vehicles including cars, scooters, motorbikes and trucks
Besides the head office in Rijswijk - which WPS has previously equipped with a barrier system - CBR has 54 exam locations spread nationwide, including location Eindhoven.
There are three options for parking at this location. There is a public area for exam vehicles, where driving school owners can continue practising with candidates, even in the evening. For staff, CBR has an underground parking facility. Visitors can use the visitors' car park next to the site.
WPS has equipped the underground car park as well as the visitors' car park at location Eindhoven with a renewed barrier system. The location in Amsterdam will follow shortly.
About the project
The barrier system installed by WPS at the underground staff car park, was installed in 1994 and was in need of replacement after almost 30 years of faithful 'service'.
The visitors' car park was freely accessible, resulting in unwanted visitors at night.
Jan van Kuijk, Facility Management CBR (Brabant, Zeeland, Limburg) says: "CBR compared several providers, but in the end we had the best feeling about WPS. The familiarity, quality and the ability to provide total peace of mind made us choose WPS again. ''
Moreover, the personal approach, thinking in terms of solutions and offering tailor-made solutions are highly appreciated: "I have had very good contact with Sven, the project leader at WPS; we have been completeley unburdened and have also determined the right solution together.''
The staff car park and visitor car park are both equipped with a modern, robust barrier system.
The barrier installation of the visitor car park is adjusted by means of a time clock, which ensures that visitors can only enter the grounds during CBR's regular opening hours.
During the project, there were three coordination moments. The fact that the site is a stone's throw away from the WPS headquarters provided extra convenience and speed. According to Jan, implementation of the solutions went smoothly.
With the robust and reliable barrier installation, CBR in Eindhoven is secured of a worry-free operation for another 20+ years.
Should any problems arise in the meantime, the WPS engineers are quickly on site to solve them and carry out any necessary maintenance. In conclusion, Jan summarises the good cooperation in a few sentences: "We are very satisfied in Eindhoven. A practical advantage is that our companies are closely situated. And apart from that, I found the contact with Sven in particular very pleasant. The bit of customisation and the complete unburdening have meant that we are very satisfied with the installation and how it works.''
In the future, we will be working for CBR in Amsterdam, as Rob Frenken, Asset Manager Vastgoed a.i. at CBR points out: ''As far as Amsterdam is concerned, we made the choice to work with you there too because of the quality you deliver and to achieve as much uniformity as possible (same equipment and same colour scheme/appearance).''
