Antwerpse Bouwwerken and Vuylsteke have started the construction of the O-Forty offices complex in Oostkamp near Bruges for Global Estate Group, a Dutch real estate developer.
The first phase of construction includes the bulk work of the first two buildings on a series of eight six-storey towers. In addition to the offices, there will also be common meeting rooms, a kitchen, a bar, patios and a reception room for about 100 people.
With this new ventilation system, 43 m3 of fresh air will soon circulate in O-Forty buildings, compared to only 30 m³ in traditional government buildings.
O-Forty will also be a near-zero energy project, generating at least 10 kWh/year/m² of renewable energy through a heat pump and 200 solar panels.
It is scheduled to open in summer 2019.
