Tervuren New Administrative Centre
Location: Tervuren, Belgium
Owner Builder: Tervuren Municipality
Contractor: Democo, Group Verbruggen / Jos Meeussen & Son
Problem / Solution
This project situated in the city of Tervuren was part of an ambitious renovation aimed at constructing a new administrative office, a modern leisure centre, and a subterranean parking for over 200 cars.
Expanded clay was used as a drainage layer beneath the substrate and was used due to its ability to retain water in the garden.
Why expanded clay?
The blowing of the granulates made it possible to place the expanded clay rapidly despite the space constraints.
