DCM Head Office, Grobbendonk (Belgium)

European market leader De Ceuster Meststoffen (DCM) produces organic fertilisers linked to waste flows from the food industry. This sustainable approach is reflected in their new energy-efficient head office in Grobbendonk. All modern sustainable construction technologies are integrated: concrete core activation, solar panels, extensive insulation and architectural solar shading.

This project not only accommodates the central departments but also serves as a conference centre. An assignment architect Reginald Schellen (Schellen Architecten) looks back on with pleasure: ‘The ideal symbiosis between the building and its environment makes this project genuinely unique. The building nestles into its natural surroundings and as such reflects the green philosophy of the company.’

For interior and exterior flooring the tiles from Ceramica Magica’s Marstood collection were chosen: Marstood Stone02 surrounds the premises and welcomes visitors and employees inside.
