INFOSTEEL – Steel Day
The 15th “Journée Construction Acier” (steel construction day) took place on 27th November in Zaventem and was a great success, with no fewer than 500 participants. The programme included a number of conferences about technical subjects and architectural projects and a ceremony to award the prizes for the Steel Construction Competition and the Student Steel Prize. During the day, speakers talked about new projects involving stations in urban development and the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. The day ended with the presentation of the new NATO headquarters with a particular focus on its steel structure, given by several representatives of the project team, including Colonel Lieven Vanheste from the Ministry of Defence (PMT), Renaud Chevalier from ASSAR ARCHITECTS and Nadia Molenstra from VK.
The prize-giving ceremony for the 2014 Steel Construction Competition also took place during the day. From the 164 projects submitted, the panel of judges picked 31 last July. 7 winners were revealed from the nominations. Find out more here
