BVI.EU is launching a new project in Tubize for none other than Hakron Belgium. The well-known supplier and manufacturer of accessories for residential and concrete construction, formwork and prefabricated elements was looking for a new location for its Belgian headquarters. Together, the two companies set out to find a suitable site to construct a customised building. BVI.EU was tasked with accompanying the entire process and finding a suitable site, and so it happened in Tubize. An industrial building with 1,200 m² of office space and 4,500 m² of storage space will rise on in BW’s Tubize II business park early next year. The construction work started recently.
Michel Meers, founder of BVI.EU: “We are honoured that Hakron came to us in search of a building that better meets the needs of a growing company in terms of office and logistics space. Together we set out to find a suitable location and finally landed at Tubize Green Business Park. Along Rue François Englert, a strategic location, we will now develop a tailor-made building for Hakron on an 11,000 m² site.”
Nicolas Brams, Director of Hakron: “BVI.EU assisted and relieved us from A to Z in the search for a new location for our headquarters in Belgium. The BVI.EU team took care of all the coordination. The search for land, the approval procedure and even the commissioning of a high-performance construction company therefore went smoothly. When drawing up the plans, we then combined corporate identity and our focus on sustainability. We couldn’t have asked for better partners and can’t wait to move into Tubize.”
The building is completely tailored to Hakron’s needs. BVI.EU’s years of experience in sustainability are reflected in all facets of the building. Solar panels, a heat pump and the complete absence of gas are just a few examples that underline the building’s energy efficiency. BVI.EU also takes care of the interior finishing of the hall and the offices, where Hakron products are visibly integrated into the interior.
The combination of 1,152 m² of office space on the ground floor and the two upper floors, as well as a storage area of 4,536 m², results in an operational area of 5,688 m². The hybrid building made of concrete and steel is scheduled to be put into operation in the first quarter of 2024.
Hakron’s new built-to-suit building is strategically located along the E429 motorway between Brussels and Lille, at the crossroads of the major capitals of Brussels, Paris, London and Amsterdam.
