Interbuild wins additional contracts for apartments and offices ‘New South’ in Antwerp
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 5 December 2014 - Interbuild nv – an operating company of Royal BAM Group nv, active in Flanders and Brussels on non-residential and residential projects – has been awarded contracts for two apartment buildings Zuidertuin and Zuiderpromenade and for the Green Desk office building. The total value of the contracts is more than €20 million.
The apartments and offices are part of the New South (Nieuw Zuid) project, which is located south of Antwerp's city centre, right next to the Scheldt River and behind the distinctive courthouse. Interbuild is already working with the project developer Triple Living on building Quay New South with 77 apartments (over 15,000 m2) and commercial premises. Interbuild has also recently started New South Campus, comprising 123 student rooms and 24 studios.
In April 2015 Interbuild will start construction works for three additional buildings. Residence Zuidertuin (South Garden) has two underground and six above-ground floors with 45 apartments, four duplex apartments, and two retail units. Zuiderpromenade (South Promenade) has an underground floor and six storeys above ground and comprises 29 apartments and three retail units. Green Desk comprises four office floors with a total area of 4,023 m2 and two underground parking levels.
All buildings in New South will be heated by a collective heating network. The energy consumption for the entire project meets the EPB regulations for new construction projects. Most of the apartments will achieve better scores than the minimum criteria for passive construction.
