This week the Flemish political responsibles inaugurated a new building on the Brussels site of ‘Tour et Taxis’. The Flemish government decided to concentrate its employees in the capital and the provincial capitals in new sustainable Flemish administrative centres. The Herman Teirlinck building is the new building for about 2600 Flemish-Government employees, who were formerly employed in four different location.
By the high-tech techniques for HVAC, lighting, energy-and heat recovery, but also by the full accessibility, the sustainable use of materials and comfort for employees the Herman Teirlinck building is very high rated in terms of sustainability. With its approximately 45,000 m² above ground surface, it is the largest passive office building in our country.
