[CALL FOR PROJECT DESIGNER]
BETWEEN THE TWO BRIDGES: A BEACON TO OPEN UP THE AREA
In addition to the fact that the “Entre-Deux-Ponts” project is the flagship project of the Maelbeek Neighbourhood Contract in Ixelles, it is also strategically located within the perimeter. Indeed, this location, which is currently landlocked and unattractive, has a certain potential, due to its position between Flagey and Jourdan, along the Rue Gray (former Maelbeek valley) and in between the magnificent brick bridges of the Avenue de la Couronne and the railway line. The challenge is to reconvert the site by giving it its own identity and to create a new neighbourhood dynamic through the project.
This is an overall mission that includes three interventions:
– A multi-purpose collective facility offering a “productive environment” to the inhabitants of the district, a place favouring “do-it-yourself” (creation and recovery).
– An urban lift between Avenue de la Couronne and Rue Gray to connect two distinct neighbourhoods and create a multimodal link.
– The redevelopment of the public space around the building.
The client, Beliris, wants to set an example in terms of sustainability, with an emphasis on circular construction. To this end, the project developer will receive support from Brussels Environment.
Beliris is looking for a multidisciplinary team comprising at least an architect, a stability engineer, a special technical engineer, a landscape architect, a BIM advisor, a BIM coordinator and a GRO expert.
PARTICULARITY: In order to avoid having to spend a considerable amount of time establishing the full composition of the team at the time of application, Beliris allows to confirm the required full composition of the team later in the procedure.
BUDGET: 3,411,679 € incl. VAT, i.e. 2,819,569 € excl. VAT (building 1,408,999 € + public space 418,537 € + public lift 992,033 €).
FEES: 13% of the cost of the work for the building + 9% of the cost of the work for the public area + 12% of the cost of the work for the public lift.
GRANT: €7,500 awarded to each of the teams invited to tender that submitted a regular and qualitative bid. For the winning team, this amount is considered as an advance payment.
The bouwmeester maître architecte accompanies the procurement procedure and will take part in the selection committee and the advisory committee.
