BelOrta - Sint Katelijne Waver

Description 

Cosimco has built the new headquarters of BelOrta (3,000 m² of office space) at the Mechelen horticultural auction centre in Sint-Katelijne-Waver.
The building was constructed on piles to a modular design using concrete load-bearing walls with brick facing. The façade is interrupted at regular intervals by modulated aluminium joinery with blinds. The intermediate floors consist of prestressed vaulting, and the cornice and plinth of the building are in aluminium cassettes. The new entrance is accented by a canopy structure. The project also included the complete interior finishing. Additionally, Cosimco coordinated the entire technical installation work.
BelOrta is not Cosimco's first building on the Mechelen Horticultural Auction site. Together with AR-TE and Stabo, it also built the new offices for E.P.S. and the operating buildings of, among other Aartsenfruit, Greenpartners, LC Packaging and METRO.

Since 2005, Cosimco has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.
