The challenges in the renovation of social housing, and in the expansion of the entire housing stock in Flanders, are countless. That is why Ecoren aims to develop universally applicable BEN renovation concepts for single-family homes and apartment buildings.
On behalf of Cordium, Democo renovated four homes in a construction team in 20 days. It is a unique renovation in which continuous occupancy is possible through piping and modifications to the building envelope.
Flip Blockx, consultant sustainable buildings of Democo explains: "Not only for the residents, but also for the implementers it was a learning process.The more knowledge in the preliminary research, the faster the construction is going.In a renovation there are always hidden defects. A well-composed construction team and daily consultations help to solve these as quickly as possible, so that we can map both the positive points and the pitfalls of the construction process, so that we can deliver another project even faster with higher quality and lower cost. "
