A warm welcome on the website of the BetonBrouwers!

Since 2007 the BetonBrouwers form the Concrete Canoe Team of Study Association ConcepT of the school of Civil Engineering at the University of Twente. Only the real diehard Civil Engineering students with a heart of concrete, loads of motivation and a lot of persistence can become a BetonBrouwer! Together the BetonBrouwers form a group of students who are not afraid to make our hands dirty and within our committee creativity and innovation with concrete are combined with a lot of pleasure/fun. On this website you are able to find background information about our committee, the applied ConcepTs and pictures & movies of the past years.

Have fun!

As we hoped and might expected the success of the past years continued in season 2013. The BetonBrouwers attended two events, the Dutch Concrete Canoe Challenge in Utrecht and the BetonKanu-Regatta in Nürnberg. In both events a lot of prizes were won, but the most important were the 5 first prizes and the sustainability award in Utrecht, and winning in both men and women categories in Nürnberg.

In the weekend of 21 and 22 April the BetonBrouwers competed in the Challenge Canoë Béton in Saint-Laurent-Blangy (Northern France). It had been quite a while since the last concrete canoe challenge in France, therefore it was the first time in the history of the BetonBrouwers that we competed on French soil. In the challenge four teams competed, being Mines de Douai (FR), Bochum (DU), Dresden (DU) and the BetonBrouwers (NL).

A new season, new concrete canoes Print E-mail

The new concrete canoeing season has started! That means that new canoes have to be developed and build. This year we have chosen to construct total black canoes with a red so called “Twentse ros” build into the stern of the canoes. During the winter period Chiel and Anna did a lot of testing and have developed a new concrete mixture in cooperation with ENCI. They came up with a new mixture of concrete, which performed in test even better than any mixture we have developed before.  By spring we were ready to construct the 2012 canoes! Meaning that currently we are spending our spare time in constructing the canoes for the Concrete Canoe Challenge in France on April 21st en 22nd. Pictures of the construction process can be found in the photo gallery.




Season 2013 came to an end.
