New main building a milestone in the development of Research Campus Hasselt
Today the works for the new main building (RCH3) started. The realization of this new main building is a milestone in the expansion of the Research Campus.
RCH3 will be the home of the new reception area of the site, as well as a service centre with additional facilities for all of the existing companies. The new main building will be equipped with a state-of-the-art restaurant and catering facilities, a lounge bar, meeting rooms, a small supermarket, a bank and post distribution point and a distribution point for Internet purchases.
On 25 October the City of Hasselt granted the building permit and in the meantime RCH awarded the contract for the works to the Democo group, who also built RCH1 and RCH2. Democo group (Democo - general construction; AEW - electricity; Van Den Briele - HVAC & sanitary installations) foresees a period of 18 months for execution of the project.
The total investment amounts to 25 million euros for a total of 14.000 m² of new office space and 3.600 m² for the additional facilities. The inauguration is planned for April 2014.
