Uitkijkcentrum (‘monitoring centre’) Kleinpolderplein


The monitoring centre is where the pictures from various cameras in the city of Rotterdam are displayed on dozens of screens. It is a state of the art centre, unique in the Netherlands and perhaps further afield. Operators watch the images 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and make contact with the police or the city incident room where necessary.

Challenge: How do we achieve high sound absorption?


It was important to achieve high sound absorption in the ceiling. The operators work in a central room in the building surrounded by screens but they have to have the quiet to conduct conversations. There was also limited space available.



Inteco’s MeandRo system provides high sound absorption. Good project management ensured optimum integration with other disciplines such as the water and electricity installations. This allowed us to fit a climate ceiling where there was limited space.

The building and architecture are the two most important factors, not the ceiling solution

The dimensions of the ceiling, and all components used in it, are fully matched to the building concept. Inteco has developed space-saving integration solutions for light fixtures and air vents, which means less plenum height is needed. Ideal for renovation projects.
