Dilbeek fire station

Together with Studio SNCDA, we are realising a new fire station in Dilbeek.
Shortlisted EU Mies Award 2024
  • Architect: Studio SNCDA

  • Client: Commune of Dilbeek

  • Surface: 4.900 m²

  • Budget: € 8.800.00

  • Timing: 2014 - 2022

  • Status: Executed

  • Photographer: Sarah Blee

  • Advisors: Bollinger & Grohmann (stability), Boydens Study Bureau (techniques, EPB), Macobo Engineering (safety coordination)

Three new programmes are planned on the plot of the former town hall: the fire station forecourt, multipurpose rooms and town houses.

  • The fire station is attached to a forecourt that serves as a practice square for the firefighters.
  • The plaza is polyvalent and covers the full width of the public plot.
  • The dwellings are arranged around a collective courtyard that is an extension of the existing gardens.

Durable structure

The barracks are built in a double concrete structure. In the underground car park, a first structure in the form of a concrete table is provided. Thanks to this structure, the large span of the fire station's garage remains intact without additional columns.

  • the integration of stability and techniques in a project where a lot of structural work remains visible
  • the detailing of precast concrete elements
  • the integration into the masonry walls
  • the carcass is treated as finishing

We modelled the BIM model together with Bollinger + Grohmann. Apart from the aspect model architecture, we also took care of the coordination and integration between the different models.

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.
