This day center welcomes 64 people. The current buildings were acquired by the Asbl as its activities developed and the center capacity increased.
They were, at the time of their construction, not built to accommodate disabled people or people with reduced mobility. Moreover, the energy efficiency of these buildings is very poor.
The Asbl has received the agreement in principle of the Cocof https://phare.irisnet.be/ for its project
which should allow the construction of a new space. The total budget was estimated at €4.500.000.
We have received a very large amount from an important foundation. A significant help from Cap 48 is already acquired and we have already found all of our 300 000€ contribution.
The preliminary project file has just been approved by the administration of Cocof and by the Minister-President, and we have just filed the urban planning as of mid- April, which is very good news.
The less good news is that the total cost of the project, which was estimated at €4,500,000, has just risen to €5.530,000 in the context of a 25% increase in construction costs. We will therefore have to find additional resources.
