BruCity presents construction challenges

The BruCity project, being created on the site of the former ‘Parking 58’ just a short distance from the Stock Exchange and the Place de Brouckère, has not been much in the news lately. However, the works are progressing on this AG Real Estate (for the City of Brussels) project, and CIT Blaton have given details of what is being done and of the challenges of a city centre construction project. Speaking of this, David Laterre, Project Manager at CIT Blaton (main contractor with BAM Interbuild), states: “The challenge is the organization of the logistics, given the urban density and the traffic. There is in fact no free zone to stock the materials”. In view of this, 8 to 10 truck-loads of materials are having to be delivered every day.

The BruCity project, it will be recalled, is designated to accommodate 1,700 civil servant of the City of Brussels. It has been designed to provide an ergonomic working environment, both where the ground floor reception counters are concerned, and the offices and meeting rooms. Two large central lifts set within a glass cylinder, along with a panoramic roof and the almost entirely glazed façade, add to the experience for the public. A public car park of 450 spaces and a further 109 spaces for the use of the City’s personnel, are also included.
