Ecological school building and sports complex

VTI school campus in Hasselt

Cordeel constructed a new education complex with a large sports hall, which directly adjoins the existing school buildings on the site of the Heilig Hart Technical Institute in Hasselt. Aside from the structural work, finishing, technical systems and layout of the surroundings, we are also taking care of the long-term maintenance.

Striking spatial design

The new school building consists of four parallel blocks, ranging from two to six storeys. In addition to classrooms, study areas and a large canteen, these blocks also contain a hairdressing salon, wood and construction workshops, offices and relaxation areas. Between the new complex and the older buildings, we have laid out an attractive green strip with trees, flanked on one side by an elegant canopy structure.

Ecological building


Sustainability was a key consideration in the design. The prefab concrete structural elements have a load-bearing function and also act as a thermal buffer. Combined with maximum daylight, shading and sun blinds, this ensures minimum energy use. Rainwater recovery also contributes to a significantly lower consumption of drinking water.
