[CALL FOR PROJECT DESIGNERS]
A NEW PLACE FOR THE POLICE
The police of Brussels-Capital Ixelles is now scattered throughout the territory of Brussels-City, in old buildings with poor energy performance and obsolete technologies. The objective is therefore to bring them together in one place, and not the least: the de Ligne building. Indeed, benefiting from a very central location on a site delimited by the streets of the Ligne, de la Banque et Montagne de l’Oratoire, this former bank headquarters was built at the end of the 1970s and benefits from a very particular design and architecture.
The challenge will be to transform thoroughly the existing site, which includes an auditorium, a vaulted hall and a large underground car park. In the future, the building will combine a wide range of functions: administrative and training functions, but also a crisis center, a cell complex, interrogation rooms, a restaurant, sports facilities and areas accessible to visitors. Parking spaces must be provided for priority vehicles and some functions must be operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
To carry out this ambitious project, the City of Brussels is looking for a multidisciplinary team. The latter will have to pay particular attention to intelligent adaptive reuse of the existing building in its context, while giving it a new identity reflecting the ambitions and spirit of the police and shaping this project in a sustainable way.
BUDGET: € 65.500.000 (building) + € 1.000.000 (outside design) + € 4.000.000 (inside design)
FEES : A range of fees between a minimum of 10% and a maximum of 15% of the amount of the work has been set.
GRANT : € 50.000 awarded to each teams invited and submitting a regular bid. This amount is considered a fee advance for the winner.
The bouwmeester maître architecte accompanies the procedure of the project and will take part in the selection committee and the advisory committee.
