About us - The Bouwcarrousel company

Bouwcarrousel BV is a unique organisation offering a deconstruction-service, a labour-generating service (setting up repair and revision workshops) and a trading organisation of revised building materials. The company is specialised in demounting building products and materials as well as installation components which can be re-used. The components are shipped to the central warehouse, cleaned, revised and sold again.

All products originate from Dutch houses and most renowned brands are available, such as Bruynzeel (kitchens), Sphinx (ceramics), Fasto (gas heaters), Grohe (taps) and Axa (fastenings).

Bouwcarrousel distinguishes itself from deconstruction companies and traders in used building materials by:

  • cleaning and revising of the materials
  • quality standards
  • a full registration of stock
  • a thorough sorting of products

Bouwcarrousel also performs consultancy studies in the fields of durable construction, durable demolition, and recycling of waste, for national and regional governments, city councils, housing organisations and architects.

Bouwcarrousel also develops and designs ecological housing concepts that are cheap (capital extensive) and labour-intensive.
The activities of Bouwcarrousel generate several advantages:

  • Life time of building materials increases
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Cheap building materials (but of a good quality)
  • Less waste after demolition
  • Less need for raw materials
  • Less costs for demolition or waste processing
  • Employment generating (satisfying jobs for the low-educated)

Assortment. The main products offered by Bouwcarrousel are:

  • Doors
  • Window frames
  • Sanitary equipment, such as sinks, toilets, taps, showers, baths, cisterns, etcetera
  • Heating installations, such as radiators, gas heaters, warm water installations, boilers
  • Kitchens

  • Floor parts
