The permit application for the project of the new headquarters of the Belgian National Railway Company (SNCB) at the “Gare du Midi” Midi railway station (Brussels) has been submitted. This headquarters will bring together all the railway company’s divisions (currently dispersed in different buildings) as well as HR Rail’s staff – a total of more than 4,000 people.
The project involves the renovation of three existing buildings and the construction of a new modern but sober rectangular block on the “Avenue Fonsny side” of the municipality of Saint-Gilles. This new headquarters extends the existing 30,000 m² to a total area of 75,000 m².
The bureau greisch participates in this magnificent and ambitious project, which will favour sustainable development and circular economy, by carrying out a complete mission of stability. The new building will be built entirely in metallic structure, allowing a perfect coherence with the architecture while respecting the particular conditions of the site.
