Along the beltway of Geel, the office building of Belcotec and Clevr is found as the first office building of the new innovation park of Thomas More. The building has an exemplary function to serve.
The warehouse and the offices are finished with the same façade material in exposed concrete. This way, the building presents itself as a single entity. The offices are largely glazed from floor to ceiling, creating a pleasant, light work environment with maximum contact with the surroundings. The roof terrace on the first floor provides the necessary qualitative outdoor space and light well into the building volume. The floors and wall coverings are finished in wood, creating a warm, pleasant working environment.
The offices on the ground floor are mainly landscape offices, with individual office spaces finished in glass only at the level of the façade, so that transparency is maintained throughout the space. The management offices are located on the first floor and a multi-purpose room is planned at the level of the façade, connecting to the roof terrace. This space serves as a meeting room, flexi-workspace, dining area and relaxation area. The boundaries of the new way of working are explored here.
Office building The ‘Willis Building’ is equipped with Zero Emission Technology. The building doesn’t use fossil fuel for heating and cooling. It includes daylight-controlled LED lighting, ventilation with heat recovery and low-energy climate-controle ceilings. The required energy is extracted from the ground using a KWO system, combined with a geothermal heat pump powered by electricity from the PV panels, resulting in zero emission.
