A passive kindergarten and primary school won the Precast in Building Award 2015 in Belgium, situated in Antwerp. The building was built with architectural concrete sandwich panels. The building displays an abstemious and regular façade that combines concrete with other materials such as wood.
The construction kept a tight deadline in order to be functional for the new school year for September 2015. Thanks to prefabrication, the construction of 8,400 m² lasted only six months.
