how to reconcile the joint needs of a training centre & a kennel unit for an urban police department
In February 2018, the governing committee of the City of Brussels gave its green light to the construction of a training centre for the Brussels Capital Ixelles police service, the largest in the country. Located on the Mercator site (Neder-Over-Heembeek) this new infrastructure will respond to the practical and theoretical training needs of the personnel (GPI 48 circular) and will be equipped, among others, with a firing range and a kennel unit.
Mandated to the consortium of CIT Blaton, assar architects and VK engineering, this development is undertaken with the collaboration of the police zone and citydev.brussels (regional city development body).
