We are happy to inform you that the construction phase of the prison, that started in 2018, has come to an end and that the prison has been handed over to our client. The FOD Justitie will soon start using the building and by the end of the year the prison should be fully operational.

Despite all our efforts to minimize the impact of the construction site on the local residents and the broader area (permanent noise monitoring, regular cleanups of the surroundings, site traffic only via the Woluwelaan, etc.), you may have encountered some disruptions during the construction period. Therefore THV Cafasso Construction is truly appreciated your patience and cooperation during this period.

We always strive to minimize the impact that our work has on those living and working around our construction site . To improve our disruption management we are always open for feedback and suggestions. We would like to ask you, as a neighbor of ours, a few moments of your time, to complete the questionnaire below to help us improve how we operate.

From now on, we will also be working on Saturdays between 7:00 and 16:00. The work that will be carried out will not cause any additional nuisance to the environment. It goes without saying we will make sure that the disruption management plan for this project is also respected during[…]
