Update construction phase 2A: first part of the building at half its maximum height!

30 June 2022

The construction of phase 2A is reaching serious proportions. At the office wing's , the columns have been placed on the second floor. With this, the first part of the building is over half way to the final height of approximately 21 metres! On the other parts of the building, Heijmans is busy pouring the second floor. 

With the placing of the double-high columns at the entrance, the outlines of the vide are becoming visible. In the meantime, the props of the floors have been removed and you can see the first rooms appearing. This is the start of the next phase: the installation of sand-lime brick walls and the infrastructure of the installations.
