During the summer of 2020, we were responsible for the renovation works on runway 07L/25R at Brussels Airport. For six weeks, work was carried out around the clock 7 days a week to limit the duration of the runway closure and the impact of these works. In total, more than 100,000 hours of work were performed in 6 weeks by around 400 people per day. About 1000 people have worked on this project. In 2015 and 2016, we also renovated the two other runways at our national airport.


    The challenge for the Vlaamse Waterweg is to raise the 62 bridges over the Albert Canal to a clearance height of 9.10 m by 2022. The most complex bridges—15 in total—have been bundled into two separate PPP projects, in which the bridges will be rebuilt based on a DBFM formula. Both PPP files were awarded to a consortium around our group. We will also be responsible for the maintenance of the bridges over the next 30 years. 


    We were responsible for the construction—from start to finish—of a container terminal with a quay length of 1.2 km and all the associated buildings on a 60-ha site in the port of Tangier. Twelve of the world’s largest double trolley, remote-controlled STS cranes are used to load and unload ships with no less than 22,000 containers on-board. APM Terminals MedPort Tangier is also one of the most technically advanced terminals in the world. 


    At the end of May 2021 the exclusive holiday park Terhills Resort by Center Parcs opened its doors at the foot of the Hoge Kempen National Park for an unforgettable holiday in Belgium. Terhills Resort is the result of a clever piece of teamwork within our group: Willemen Construct built among others the 250 holiday villas, the swimming pool and the catering facilities, while Willemen Infra took care of the sewers, roads, utilities and waterways.


    Who isn’t familiar with the Queen Elisabeth Hall? Big stars like Jacques Brel and Bruce Springsteen performed there. We built a new hall in precisely the same location with even more international allure as part of the Elisabeth Center Antwerp, a concert and congress centre for (inter)national performances and conventions. The new Elisabeth Hall has a maximum capacity of 2,000 seats and is narrower, deeper, and taller than the old one. Wavy, wooden wall cladding contributes to the acoustics of the world’s best performers.
