Lecture - 'Transitwonen als tijdelijke oplossing' - 14.10.2022

11 Oct 2022

Matthias Brusselmans, architect-partner at A2D architecture 2 design, is invited to be one of the speakers at the webinar 'Heavy (energetic) renovation of occupied residential buildings' that is taking place next Friday 14th October (9.30 - 12.00) as part of the FEDER project 'Living Labs Brussels Retrofit'.

The goal of the FEDER project 'Living Labs Brussels Retrofit' is to promote the renovation of Brussels housing by creating privileged spaces destined for experimentation and innovation: the living labs. During four years, these pilot projects will allow the development of know-how and an improvement of the cooperation with the construction sector, resulting in the arrival of a volume market for eco-energetic renovations.

As part of the long-term objectives of the Brussels Renovation Strategy, it is certain that many residential buildings will have to undergo major works while their occupants remain on site. This specific approach to construction sites is already used in other sectors such as the tertiary sector, but it is also increasingly common in residential projects.
This webinar is intended primarily for building managers in the Brussels-Capital Region (public real estate companies, social rental offices, co-ownership managers, etc.) but also for anyone interested in the subject. Through practical testimonials, it aims to shed light on the main opportunities and challenges in renovations with sitting occupants (technical aspects, organizational aspects, communication with occupants and nuisance reduction) and the tools available to facilitate this process.

Based on case studies - in particular the pilot transit housing project in which A2D architecture 2 design designed sustainable, affordable and relocatable small-scale housing units - Matthias Brusselmans illustrates how transit housing can be a practical, sustainable and feasible solution during the course of these renovations.
