Tram depot Marconi - Brussels

Description 

The Marconi tram depot has 22 tracks and offers space for 75 trams in the storage area and a further ten in the maintenance hall. A new building houses the administrative services. During construction, particular attention was paid to the harmonious integration of the building into its green surroundings and the ecological aspect. For example, the depot has a basin that collects rainwater for the sanitary facilities and tram washing, as well as a heat pump, 600 solar panels, smart LED lighting, etc. Marconi has a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating.

 

Willemen Infra is a leading, Belgian road construction company with a regional presence in both Flanders and Wallonia. An important asset is that we have all aspects of the construction process under our own management and thus fully control the execution. Moreover, our team of 1,000 well-trained and experienced employees are willing to work at night and over the weekend to make sure they get everything done in time. In addition, thanks to our own COPRO-certified production and recycling sites, we are one of the leading producers for asphalt and road concrete.

Since 1998 Franki Construct has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.

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.
