DCB – SuReal – GML Estate – HUB – POLO
SuReal writes sustainability guidelines for the development of the project “Lageweg, Hoboken”, a brownfield development of 12,5ha of residences, school, commerce and offices.
Electromobility – policy support
Departement Omgeving – 3E (main contractor)- SuReal – Stroohm – Volta
Last year the EC published the amended Directive on the energy performance of buildings and energy efficiency in which article 8 deals with electromobility. Departement Omgeving – the Flemish Department of Environment and Spatial Development – aims to gather the necessary insights and technical specifications to fully transpose the obligations of the Directive to a revised decree. Combining expertise, analysis and stakeholder input, SuReal defines a technical proposition for the charging infrastructure for EVs in and around buildings in that regard.
BREEAM Outstanding certification
Barry Callebaut – SuReal – WDP – AAVO- Alheembouw – Istema
WDP needed support to achieve an energy-neutral and sustainable new distribution center with offices for Barry Callebaut. For this building of 60.000m² BREEAM is used as a roadmap through the design of the project. SuReal is assisting the design team with detailed studies and guides the team in achieving a BREEAM Outstanding certification.

Indoor air quality
Group Van Vooren (soil pollution & air quality measurement) – SuReal
In the South of Antwerp, critical levels of VOC are reached in certain dwellings due to soil pollution. As a result, the indoor air quality in the concerned buildings is severely reduced and there’s an increased risk of health issues. SuReal investigates and proposes a set of technical measures to improve indoor air quality.

Jury member for a design contest
Aquafin – SuReal
The labs, offices and storage rooms of the Aquafin plant in Alost need a thorough update. Therefore Aquafin organised a design contest. SuReal is a member of the jury with a special focus on topics such as the circular economy, the energy efficiency and financial feasibility of the different designs.
Optimisation on EPB/PEB and renewable energy
Confidential client – SuReal
SuReal performed technical due diligence for a residential project in Alost and a mixed project (offices&residential) in Knokke. The designs were improved by optimising the self-consumption of PV-panels and by adapting window specs (glazing type and glazing-percentage).
