Visit to Exemplary Buildings in the Brussels-Capital Region
In 2007, the Brussels-Capital Region launched a major stimulus programme for the renovation and construction of buildings meeting high energy and environmental standards: the ‘Exemplary Buildings’ call for projects.
After six calls, the Brussels-Capital Region gave grants to 243 projects for a total of 620 000m² of sustainable buildings, 64 % of which are passive buildings and many of these use renewables. The Brussels Nearly Zero Energy Building Policy, with its exemplary buildings, has been granted the EUSEW Award 2012 in the ‘Living’ category.
On 16 June, a guided tour (bilingual English-French) will visit two exemplary buildings in Brussels (see more information here) , one being the new passive office building of Brussels Environment in Tour & Taxis, the other being an exemplary renovation.
