Jan-Hendrik Beckx takes a seat in Architecctura's talking chair

In the past, Bureau Bouwtechniek has built up a strong portfolio as a study and advice bureau, including Casino Middelkerke, Kunstcampus deSingel and Mediagebouw VRT. The team of experts is therefore not unfamiliar with large, ambitious projects, but also with smaller-scale projects such as a water silo. That they are not afraid of a challenge and are always pioneering is proven with Gare Maritime. Now that, together with Neutelings Riedijk Architects, they have received the award for that project in the Utility Building category of the Belgian Building Awards 2021, Jan-Hendrik Beckx, engineer-architect at Bureau Bouwtechniek, talks to us in our Praatstoel.
