Construction and Development

We manage the building.


I hope you'll fix it quickly.

Such a new lift.

I'd like to help, but the air

conditioning seems to work well.

Don't you know four people lost


They couldn't breathe.

-Look for yourself.

Strange, but four people ended

up in hospital.

There must be a reason.

I'll check all the electric


They could well be the source of the


Show Mr Adelaar the way.

I have a meeting.

If you need me, our office is

at the 6th floor.



Are you alright, Mr Kraayevanger?

Yes, I shouldn't be running

like that.

A psychiatrist. He has his

office here.

He'd better have a rest on his

own divan.

What else do you have in

the building?

All kinds, offices, companies...

a restaurant, a real estate


But half of it's empty.

-Not surprising considering the rent.

I'm not complaining. Less work

for me.

Here we are.

This is only the 14th floor.

I must have pressed the wrong button.

Happens often lately.

I must be getting old.

Look at that.

Two broken window panes.

As if I don't have enough work.

I'll clean up later.

Nothing unusual.

Lightning definitely didn't strike


That looks way too complicated

for me.

Do you understand this?

-It's my job. I studied it.

Is that part of it too?

The microprocessor's in there.

The operating unit.

Chips and stuff.

It's pretty complicated.

Terrible about your colleague.


He was very friendly and he worked

on the lift for so long.

That time when he serviced it.

And now it's stuck again.

But it could be anything.

I'll let you work. Will the

lift be out of order?

No, there's no need.

Good, I won't have to walk

Come to me when you want a coffee.

Ok, I will.
