We are building a new home as part of the residential service of La Maisonnée in Ittre, Brussels. This house will accommodate ten of the most vulnerable people (double diagnosis - combination of mental disability and mental illness).
Our project was selected by the Walloon Region, meaning that we will receive funding for all operating costs. (https://www.aviq.be/)
Construction began in December 2019.After the pandemic initial phase,construction work resumed in mid-May.The roof installation was completed.
Unfortunately ,we had to face the bankruptcy of the general contractor due to the Covid crisis.
We managed to break the contract before the bankruptcy was declared, which avoided any financial impact.
Good news started to arrive again at the beginning of 2021. First of all, we received the agreement of the AViQ to resume the urgent work, which was done at the end of March.
Then the new call for tenders that was imposed on us for the end of the work enabled us to select a company for the interior work.
The exterior work was completed in the Autumn with the installation of facade cladding and window frames - see photo.
The priority is now the interior work.
The contracting company is at work and started with the installation of the false ceilings and the ceilings. The floors are insulated.
This phase of the work is now followed by the installation of the underfloor heating pipes. The floor screeds should start at the end of January 2022.
The end of the work is planned for June 2022. An opening date of September 22 appears to be the most likely date.
