Master Building LPA
On the former site of Post X in Antwerp, the new Master Building for the Local Police Antwerp (LPA) is being built. It is a very prestigious and complex building with 2 towers of 9 floors each, connected to one another by a 4-storey central core. The complex accommodates about 14,000 m² of office space, 400 parking spaces, bicycle sheds for 500 bicycles and 2,200 work stations. A project of this size requires a solid foundation ... and who could deliver this better than Soetaert.
An impressive diaphragm wall site was the result: 61 diaphragm wall panels were placed up to maximum 33 metres deep. Apart from this, we also installed two rows of anchors during the excavation of the building pit (up to - 17m). By no means an easy task! Particularly considering the numerous obstacles (old foundations and brick walls from the 19th century) that we faced and the fact that we were working close to existing buildings and buildings under construction.
