AP Hogeschool Campus Spoor Noord - Antwerp

Description 

Design & Build of the new Spoor Noord campus for 3,500 students of the Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool. The new building—an architectural masterpiece—has nine auditoriums for 70 to 250 people, 118 classrooms with 12 to 70 seats, 8 lifts, a library of 900m², a cafeteria with 700 seats, administrative offices, and study areas. In order to realise the large overhang of the building, we devised a complex caisson construction in the roof volume of the building.

 

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.
