Research profile

Dave Havermans recently joined the REM&D Group after receiving his MSc in Real Estate Management from the TU/e. His thesis concentrated on queality of life as one of the performance fields of Dutch housing associations. Specifically the thesis dealt with the development of a decision support system for the choice in Quality of Life interventions of housing associations.

While finishing this thesis Dave Havermans worked as a researcher at Research Institute Interface. Furthermore he coached master students on research methodology.



His PhD research focuses on the application of a branding process in the revitalisation of existing urban neighbourhoods. Specifically it seeks to gain more insight in the relations between the identity of place of existing urban neighbourhoods (imago, brand), the place attachment of individuals and groups and functional, physical, spatial and morphological characteristics of the neighbourhood. Also, the research seeks to enhance the understanding of the key process elements, in order to obtain a theoretical model that accounts for the interrelations of these concepts, the key strategic factors in the process and the possible consequences of alternatives. In the end the research seeks to describe procedures and tools to promote a successful outcome of this type of branding and Real Estate Redevelopment.



At Research Institute Interface, Dave Havermans conducts research on the satisfaction of tenants with the housing quality and services of housing associations. Other research seeks more insight in processes and implementation of performance tracking by housing associations. Performance tracking is a form of onymous research which focuses on the satisfaction of a tenant with one event, transaction or service.
