Phase 2: expanding the infrastructure with a new building

This new building includes a lab classroom that can be used in various ways. On the first floor, this new space provides silence and movement space.

As executive architects, we help the designing architects with all technical and financial issues so that they can fully focus on the design. We also monitor the implementation and ensure that the objectives and plan are always crystal clear for all partners, so that together we can realise our dreams.
