SJOERD VAN TILBURG
Helping Projects finish successfully since 2001!
In 2001 I found my true passion when starting on my first Construction Project as a Warehouse assistant.
Since then I have worked in a wide range in (EP)C projects in Oil, Gas, Chemicals and Wind Energy.
My never-ending curiosity, enthusiasm and flexibility brought me a vast amount of experience and practical knowledge. I can truly say, that as a true all-rounder I can be of great service on ANY project.
"STARTING WITH THE END IN MIND"
To be able to start with the end in mind means that you are Allround. Becoming an Allrounder means gathering an extensive knowledge of the various processes and disciplines involved in a successful Project Execution and close-out.
The only way to gather that knowledge is when you start from scratch.
And Like the Mail room employee who becomes a Manager, Curiosity is the Key!
I am always open to gather new knowledge and am eager to learn out off passion for the wonderful world of construction…
If there is one saying / Quote that I adopted it is this one:
“If it doesn’t go Right? Go left!”
Not by changing or ignoring the rules, but by thinking outside the box, meanwhile staying within the company and Governmental regulation. You would be amazed how much an open mind and pragmatic approach can achieve!
HOW DID I BECOME A PROFESSIONAL?
People Learn by studying, by doing, by Staying Curious and, very important,
BY ASKING QUESTIONS!
TURNOVER MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY
Turnover Management means “starting the project with the end in mind”. Together with the discipline engineers the Turnover systems are developed and discussed with management and client.
Turnover Follow's up on installation test packs, provides punch items management, secures (sub-)System completion and, inevitably, Guaranties
“Transfer of Care Custody and Control” (TCCC).
A solid document system will ensure the finished project scope can be presented to the client in a professional way.
(COMPLETION) DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT
Completion Management means:
follow up on
- Verification Issued for Construction
documentation compared to "As Built"
- Registration, tracking and tracing of
installation test packs,
- pre-fabrication proof of installation
- Punch items for remaining work.
Following up on vendor- and engineering Documentation to guaranty that the Equipment is installed according to Vendor Recommendations to ensure Legal guaranty.

Turnover / Transfer of Care Custody and Control (TCCC) are closely related to QA/QC and require intensive
co-operation between CM and Client.
For example : Document checking, NOBO co-ordination, FAT- and SAT Co-ordination.
Turnover supports the client with knowledge and collects the needed documentation from CM to make sure the NOBO can accept the newly build Plant and take it into service.
MATERIAL, LOGISTICS & WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT
The building blocks of every project : Receipt, checking, storage, transporting and distributing (Allocation) of all project related items including checking their basic documentation.
Registration through company supplied software or by creating an ad-hoc registration system.
Items delivered from Suppliers need to go to external or internal parties to ensure (governmental) acceptance.
The Turnover Department can follow up on that.
SAFETY STARTS WITH "S" BUT IT BEGINS "YOU"!
Safety as a mindset - At work and at Home
"SHARING KNOWLEDGE IS SHARING WEALTH"
I am still extremely gratefull for the help I received in my Early days in Plant Construction. For new-comers it can be very difficult to get to learn all the ins and outs from EPCM Projects.
Therefore I am eager to share that knowledge to anyone interested in this exiting world!
