The renovated building ‘The Source’ will meet all requirements regarding accessibility, sustainability, circularity, reduction of energy consumption and comfort.
“By bringing together the three Brussels buildings of our Group in the same building, we want to further increase the synergy and dynamism in our teams. ‘The Source’ will provide a workplace that promotes co-creation, innovation and innovation. Moreover, to increase our mobility modes and our CO2 within the plan,” says Christophe Van Ophem, Managing Director of Eiffage Benelux.
“Our DNA as a builder-project developer is fully expressed through ‘The Source’. The architectural design that has not been developed, low-carbon solutions and technical innovations will make it urban, economic and environmental,” adds Thierry Collard, Managing Director of Eiffage Development.
