This renovation is part of the Flemish government's objective to be an example in terms of low-energy office buildings.

The starting point for this assignment is maximum conservation. The study carried out in this context was integrated into the new use of the building.

Avant la lettre, the circular sustainability principles were applied here.

We advise and support officeKGDVS from initial preliminary design to delivery with a multidisciplinary approach:

  • Integral sustainable design approach and management using the sustainability meter GRO
  • Design advice within the framework of EPB regulations
  • Facade study with impact analyses of different design options using daylight study, dynamic simulation of heat balance in the context of summer comfort, etc.
  • Structural engineering advice to turn the architectural concept into a feasible design
  • Advice on specifications
  • Budget management
