Police station - Ostend


The new police station in Ostend is nearly energy neutral and equipped with the latest security and communication gadgets. During the construction of the police station, Willemen Construct extensively applied BIM and LEAN. The BIM cell integrated the different BIM models of the designers into one model from which the necessary information for the execution was extracted. In this way, the model was concretely used to generate measurement statements, progress statements and work plans. The police station is the new workplace for 270 police officers. In addition to the construction, we were also responsible for the design and financing of the project (DBF).

Willemen Construct came into being on 1 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Willemen General Contractor and the construction department of Kumpen.
