Cordeel HQ – a bridge to the future

Over the past few years, the former shipyard of Boelwerf on the De Zaat industrial site in Temse has been transformed into the new company site for Cordeel’s Temse base. The move has been a gradual transition, with a few departmental buildings being the first to be built on the 20 hectare site and the new head office putting the final piece in place. The beam-shaped building spans the former dry dock, which is strategically located on a side arm of the Scheldt. Steel, glass, reflective facade panels and boundless ambition are the ingredients making up this constructive gem. The main 11 m high building – a 108 m long structure in S355 steel consisting of two 10 m high trusses supplemented by crossbeams with cantilevers made of H-sections – rests on four steel legs around which concrete cores have been erected. The underside of the building is 14 m above ground level, so Cordeel employees can enjoy a panoramic 360° view from wherever they happen to be.
