Project to extend and completely renovate the day and accommodation centres of CREB Woluwe (Children's Rehabilitation Centre in Brussels)
After the opening of the CREB Anderlecht, there will be 45 children in Woluwe in the day centre (we will gradually increase to 55 children) and 27 in the residential centre at the opening. This is the second CREB project.
The CREB Woluwe welcomes children and young teenagers with severe mental and associated disabilities.
To-day's buildings have become unfit(asbestos) and too small to meet updated norms.We need to rebuild completely or have to close. Specifically ,the ground floor needs rebuilding. A first-floor needs be added. The living surfaces will need to be increased by +/- 1 000 m² and will allow the upgrading of the rooms, the sanitary equipment … The works will be phased in time since it is impossible to close.
This will be the most ambitious project Constellations has ever managed. The cost is indeed estimated at 5.000.000 €. 55 children are concerned after the opening and 82 places at stake. More than 120 people work in this center. It is also their jobs that are at stake.
The preliminary project has been approved by the College of Ministers, which means that the project is going to go ahead because we are going to find the money necessary to carry out the project. In fact we have already found €4,850,000 of the estimated €5.000,000 cost of the project including the equipment. Our own contribution is €650,000 and we have also found €1,400,000 from several foundations. Constellations' contribution of €650,000 played a major role in obtaining the agreement of these foundations.
These foundations are the Lokumo Foundation, the M.M Delacroix Foundation, Cap 48, the Roger de Spoelberch Foundation , the NIF Foundation and the Michelham Foundation.we are counting on the help of the Rotary Clubs of Brussels.Cocof's contribution is estimated at €2,800,000.Thus we are only missing 150.000€
We obtained the agreement of our long leaseholder in December. We have therefore submitted the final plans to the administration, which will allow us to launch the planning permission procedure as soon as the administration's agreement has been obtained. This is excellent news and brings months of discussions to a positive conclusion.
