Campus Spoor Noord and Newton SME Park nominated for Real Estate Project of the Year

On March 18th, the non-profit association SME Promotions (KMO Promoties) organizes the annual “The Night of the SME” to promote managers, industrialists, professionals and SME’s. As usual, awards will be handed out to meritorious companies and persons. This includes an award for the Best Real Estate Project of the Year. Nominated this year are Campus Spoor Noord in Antwerpen (arch. POLO architecten and Jaspers-Eyers) and the Newton SME-park in Brussels (arch. DDS partners and BAEB). VK took charge of the engineering studies of both projects: M&E engineering for Campus Spoor Noord and structural engineering for the Newton SME-park.

Campus Spoor Noord, with a striking architectural design by POLO architects and Jaspers-Eyers, is an iconic addition to Park Spoor Noord, a revitalized city district. It joins a number of recent developments in this area, such as the North Light office tower and the renovated WDT hangars, both engineering references for VK. In the future, the new city hospital ZNA will become another beacon in this district.

The Newton SME-park already received international acclaim last year. The colorful and expressive design by DDS Partners and Bureau d’Architecture Emmanuel Bouffioux (BAEB) was nominated for a MIPIM-award in the category “Best Industrial & Logistics Development”.
