Start construction office building, shooting range and catering point in Relegem

Commissioned by the Province of Flemish Brabant, Wyckaert builds a shooting range, an office building and a catering point for PIVO.

The Provincial Institute for Training & Education (PIVO) is responsible for practice-oriented education and training for public and private emergency services, public administrations and companies.

 

The siteĀ 

The project is being realized on the site of a former air force base in Relegem. It was purchased in 1997 by the province of Flemish Brabant and has been renovated and expanded since 2006. It is one of the first military domains in our country that has been decontaminated and almost completely reallocated. A few years ago, Wyckaert built a sports hall and classrooms on the same site for the students of the fire and police school.

 

From boiler room to catering point

The old boiler room, which dates from 1910, is being dismantled and redesigned as a catering facility. It will have an industrial kitchen that can serve 250 people. This mainly concerns students, staff members and partners of the PIVO. The exterior of the building is preserved as a heritage.

 

Sheds will be converted into shooting ranges

The two shooting ranges of 25 meters, totaling 7 lines, are housed in one of the abandoned sheds. These will be used by agents trained in the PIVO and by police zones from all over the province.

In order to preserve as much open space as possible and to preserve the existing buildings in a sustainable way, construction is carried out according to the principle of box-in-box. This involves building in the existing warehouses.

In addition, Wyckaert will provide an extra polyvalent office building.

The works include structural work, finishing, techniques. The province of Flemish Brabant invests more than 4 million euros. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2021.
