GAZO - Sint-Truiden


GAZO is the redevelopment of the Gazometer site in the neighbourhood of the station. We built a new welfare campus on the wasteland that had been left fallow for many years. This multifunctional complex is entirely dedicated to the child and includes a primary school with a sports hall, a youth centre with a party room, rehearsal rooms, a youth centre with a multipurpose hall, offices for Kind & Gezin (Child & Family) and other services for child welfare, 15 apartments, and an underground car park. We have built the 26,000m² complex with particular attention to nuisance reduction in the busy neighbourhood.

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.
