The third edition of the BUILDING GOLF TROPHY took place on September 14th 2015 at the beautiful domain of the Naxhelet Golf Club in Wanze (Huy) with a “shot gun” program for golfers and an initiation program for beginners.
This event brought together the actors of the construction and building professionals: architects, consulting firms, promoters, developers,… A lovely occasion to meet up.
Technum emphasized her presence once again with a great bottle of Spa water decorated by Technum ‘s colours to bring happiness among the thirsty ones despite the bad weather conditions. They who played golf during this Building Event could discover the Marketing stand of Technum situated on the golf course.
Our Sales Director, Yves Kerremans of the product line Building & Industrial Sites, participated at the golf tournament and contributed this way to social networking with team members. The event ended in style with a wine degustation, a walking dinner and an award ceremony (where he unfortunately could not take any price home .. J)
A Successful day. We look forward to next year’s edition!
The 7th edition of IMMORUN™ took place on September 17, 2015 on the Droh!me (ex- Boisfort Hippodrome in Uccle). For three years in a row our Technum employees have proven that work and sports on high level are perfectly combinable and so they succeeded once again to conquer a place on the podium. The silver medal was well earned by our colleagues Frédéric van Durme, Bertrand Pairon and Maxime Kinet.
This Year for the first time Technum was part of Immorun as SILVER PARTNER to gain even more visibility as a dynamic actor of The Real Estate Sector in Belgium.
IMMORUN™ is a Business Run of 9 km which combines Sports & Well-being, Team-Building, and Business Networking within the Real Estate Sector in Belgium. It brings together architects, promoters, financial institutions, agencies, builders, experts, consultants, lawyers, public institutions, and their partners… A natural and healthy way to relieve stress and face the challenges in life and at work.
Yves Kerremans, Sales Director and Jan Lecompte, Product Director of the product line Building & Industrial Sites as well as Hein Dirix, General Manager SSI were present to encourage our runners.
We congratulate our Technum-Teams for this beautiful achievement!
Saturday, 20 June, the Technum project team members involved in the A11 project paid a visit to the site. We were shown around by our site supervisor David De Ridder. Work at the site has now been under way for a good year, with some of the important constructions in the project starting to take shape. Technum produced the reference design and the specifications for this DBFM project, which comprises a stretch of motorway of around 12 km, with a diamond interchange, a movable bridge, a 15-metre high viaduct and various tunnels and bridges. Staff from various departments, including Rail, Road & Spatial design, and the Structures Competence Center are regularly consulted as technical advisers.
The project will be fully completed in three years.
When it comes to railway accessibility in Belgium, this is closely linked to the issue of the main North-South connection and to the local connections which use it (north-south and west-east). The North-South connection’s capacity is currently restricted to around 90 trains per hour, offering an operating level of fairly mediocre quality.
This study must enable significant progress to be made in the debate on the future of the railway network in terms of travelling to, from and in Brussels. The considerations on this issue have actually only been partially outlined at the moment, and have not been developed sufficiently to allow a decision to be made on this strategic matter.
This debate cannot be restricted to considering infrastructural solutions, but should also, in the view of the team of the consultants, touch on every aspect of mobility. The main points for consideration are:
Consideration must be given to the problems experienced so far in creating a clear strategic vision for developing the railway service in the greater Brussels area for political, technical and economic reasons.
This situation needs to evolve. The increased use of public transport, development of a multipolar conurbation and leveraging of existing infrastructures are among the factors which require a greater use of the railway network.
With this in mind, the following 3 phases are planned in this study:
- Phase 1: Current situation and arrangement of development scenarios
- Phase 2: Multi-actor multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA)
- Phase 3: Detailed description of scenarios selected
Anyone who has to spend their life in a wheelchair misses out on some aspects of their social life. In cities, obstacles appear everywhere in the form of doorsteps, doors being too small, or not enough space for a wheelchair to turn round. This is a situation that the company On Wheels, which operates in the non-profit sector, wants to do something about. It has developed an app of the same name – On Wheels – to enable wheelchair users to find accessible locations (stores, restaurants, toilets etc.). There are volunteers in Flanders who are going to measure doors and doorsteps in 12,000 locations. The app will look for accessible buildings in the vicinity, based on the wheelchair’s dimensions and the ability of the wheelchair user to negotiate doorsteps. SSI supports and sponsors this initiative in various ways, including through providing expertise and staff. On Wheels and Technum want to launch the app globally.
At the same time, the Rail, Road & Spatial Design department is involved in developing a methodology for screening infrastructure accessibility in cities more widely. Sponsoring and collaborating with On Wheels are part of this.
Anyone wishing to find out more about accessibility or participate as a volunteer in this project, and who wants, for instance,
