Tenant and landlord fully support 100% partnership

Frank Geets, Administrator-General of the Facility Management Agency
The Hendrik Conscience building at Koning Albert II laan, Brussels, belongs to AXA Belgium and houses the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training. The lease on the building did not expire until 2023, but in March 2015, owner AXA Belgium put forward a proposal for a thorough renovation of the building with a view to improving its sustainability and introducing the new way of working.

In practical terms, the aim of this far-reaching renovation was to bring the building up to date. “The building no longer met our current expectations in terms of sustainability, but as the Flemish Government, we prefer the North District of Brussels because of the excellent access by virtually all forms of public transport. No fewer than 90% of the users in the Hendrik Conscience building come by train!” says Frank Geets, Administrator-General of the Facility Management Agency.

Focusing on BREEAM Excellent

The Flemish Ministry for Education and Training is to remain in the Hendrik Conscience building until 2032 while AXA Belgium will bear the cost of the major conversion work. The Flemish Government gave the go-ahead for this at the end of 2015 and the contract was signed at the end of January 2016. An open communication procedure with owner AXA Belgium was set up and this ultimately led to a 100% partnership and a win/win situation for both parties.
