In the home base of Reynaers Aluminium in Duffel, the head office was extended with a new prestigious building, designed by Jaspers-Eyers. In addition to its architectural appearance, the BEN new building is characterised by sustainability and technological innovation over four storeys. The building achieves an E-level of 40 thanks to a thorough facade study: after all, the intention was to achieve maximum glazing with minimal solar gains.

Progressive technology and design are central to a pleasant and sustainable working environment. The new building houses a high-tech showroom for an optimal experience of the systems, as well as a space for virtual simulations, an auditorium, meeting rooms and offices.

In addition to these facilities, the substantial expansion of the Reynaers Institute occupies an important part of the building. In this way Reynaers Aluminium increases its R&D capacity and the latest digital applications are used for the development of new systems. The digital technology can be used for validation and testing as well as for the development of architectural and high-tech window, door, wall and facade concepts.

The starting point in the office part of the new building is to create an environment that meets the requirements of current and future generations of employees, in search of a challenging, fascinating, innovative and interactive working environment.
