Eiffage, through Valens (Eiffage Construction’s Belgian subsidiary), in a consortium with BESIX and In Advance, won the contract to build the Wallonia-Brussels Federation public service broadcaster RTBF’s new headquarters in Schaerbeek, north-east of Brussels. The contract is worth almost €100 million, of which Eiffage’s share is 40%.
Named Media Square, the almost 40,000-square-metre future building will become the new base for RTBF’s employees. RTBF wanted a new building to meet its changing operational needs, work patterns and ensure improved energy performance.
The architects, MDW Architectures and V+, have designed a building with slightly curved facades giving it a singular identity. The focus will be made on expanses of glazing and Media Square will include a patio, indoor gardens and terraces.
This project forms part of the drive to completely overhaul a 20-hectare site where is located RTBF’s current headquarters. Media Square will have a central position in the Mediapark.brusells district.
Works are now under way, with delivery scheduled for 2024.
