ZIN on TerZake (Canvas)

23 November 2020

On Tuesday 17 November Canvas aired a story about circularity in the construction industry during their news broadcast on Terzake.

Our colleague Werner Joris was interviewed about the ZIN construction site in Brussels.

Circularity as a basic principle
Circularity is a key aspect of the ZIN project. The existing building will be preserved as much as possible. The underground floors and circulation cores are being retained. The elements that will be demolished will be given new life. Overall, more than 95% of all existing materials and equipment will be preserved, recovered or recycled. The circular philosophy is not only based on recovery and certification, it also involves a very future-oriented outlook in a long-term vision for the building. The basic structure of the building will be identical for the different functions and will offer a great flexibility. ZIN does not only focus on today’s needs, it can also be adapted to tomorrow's requirements.
