architectesassoc. IN THE NEWS

Greenbizz (finished end 2015) and Elia (finished end 2013) have at least one thing in common:  close-knit teams led by invested clients. On Greenbizz, citydev is represented by Stéphane Stevelinck (Project Developer), and Michel Nederlandt (Manager Methods and Support) served for Elia. Both are key actors making a difference from design stage on through site work, pragmatically getting the job done. It’s day-to-day work, but not short-term: both serve a bigger long-term picture focusing on positive impact on the lives of the people living or working in and around their buildings, today and tomorrow. This is responsible action. Greenbizz aims at creating up to 200 jobs, designed to become a dynamic motor stimulating Brussels’ local economy. The first article by D.Dekeyser explains this.

D.Hainaut presents this exemplary aspect in the second article.articles from Bruxelles métropole

Façade cladding is coming to an end, be it the Kerto panels in pressure-treated timber meticulously crafted by Roses’s Natural Homes, the top-floor Kalzip panels in natural aluminium, or the agora’s structural glazing installed by a fantastic team led by Cei-DeMeyer (Jonckheere, Ney&Partners, and Groven+). Interior finishes and technical installations are en route, including the Building Management System fine-tuned for the project. Best news are up on the roof : the photovoltaic canopy covering the whole of the top-floor incubator and patios is on its way, upgrading the project from passive to nzeb. Neighbors and passer-bys are getting curious, which is just what we hoped for … the buzz audible from all the way over the pond.
