Multi-purpose centre Uyttenhove was completed last month. Corona has an impact in many areas, including the festive opening of Uyttenhove. The municipality is proud of its new sports and culture complex, but unfortunately cannot demonstrate this with bells and whistles for the time being. That is why they organize a short tour of the complex on Thursday 15 October, 7.30 pm. Interested parties can confirm their presence via firstname.lastname@example.org and this by Monday 12 October.

District heating Schrijverswijk
BULK architects, OVERZICHT and Woonpunt Schelde-Rupel have been selected for the Regional project call "sustainable materials and energy use"! Social housing companies can play a pioneering role in making residential areas more sustainable, because they are often the only ones with a patrimony of some scale. During the feasibility study, we outline a path to a climate-proof sustainable Schrijverswijk in Zwijndrecht - with heat network, geothermal energy and other renewable energy sources. We involve experts, look for stakeholders and investigate thresholds, choices and solutions. The financial support of the FDME for this study allows us to conduct thorough research that falls outside the usual design budgets. The knowledge gained will be shared with other social housing companies to maximize the impact.
