15696857_10211608689363141_2120356260_oThe Expert Day about renovation of high-rise buildings is approached from different angles. The event is composed of four sections.

During the kick-off section about VISION several bold statements came up. Ir. Arch. Filip Canfyn dropped the “HipHipHooray-phenomena” and Flemish Government Architect Leo Van Broeck told a story about installing chicory- and mushroom plantations in underground garages if our mobility policy will change in a bad way.

During the TECHNICS section, prof. Nathan Van Den Bossche took the public in a nutshell along the story of the Etrimo residential towers. In particular, prof. Nathan Van Den Bossche told about  the different aspects of research necessary for renovation of these buildings.

Dominique Krickovic made sure all participants were given a better understanding of the role and duties of a syndic. Henceforth everyone who was present at this presentation, will be more respectful for the crucial role of the syndic.
