Water tower - Ghlin

Description 

Franki carried out a unique architectural project in Ghlin: a 52.5 m high water tower with a 2,000 m³ storage capacity. The project was designed by the "Vers plus de bien-être" (V+) architectural firm. Stability and special technology consultants also collaborated in the project. With a height of 52.5 m, this architectural structure is an unmissable landmark. Day and night, thanks to an LED lighting system, it provides an incredible view over the Ghlin-Baudour industrial park.

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