Tractebel embarks on four-year building mission for the European Parliament

10 Nov 2022

Tractebel’s Urban-Buildings experts are leading a consortium to assist the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, in implementing architectural and engineering projects through 2026.

The European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, is known across the globe as the centre of European democracy. The setting for debating, voting and decision making that shapes the lives of millions across the European Union. As a dynamic and evolving institution, the European Parliament (EP) continues to develop. Tractebel and partners will contribute to this growth over the next four years.

New framework contract for four years of architectural and building projects
Following an open call to tender (ref. 06D20/2021/M059), Tractebel officially renewed its four-year framework contract with the European Parliament (EP) on September 29, 2022, for the provision of services related to assistance in the implementation of architecture and engineering projects. Our Urban-Buildings experts are leading the consortium, composed of our Infrastructures teams and Brussels architects Altiplan and B2Ai.

Tractebel will assist its prestigious client in project management, architecture, building stability, structural work, all technical systems and fire safety technology, but also acoustics, accessibility, environment and energy efficiency. These services will apply to two ongoing projects within the EP, as well as the realization of new buildings. Tractebel will be responsible for all engineering missions. Together with our partners, we began our second four-year mandate on November 1, 2022.

European Parliament to lead by example in sustainable architecture
This project provides a unique opportunity to highlight Tractebel’s expertise in the field of energy efficiency and decarbonization. Building sustainably is high on the European political agenda, and therefore the Parliament has the opportunity to assume an exemplary role.

Among the largest transnational parliaments in the world
The European Parliament is known worldwide for its remarkable buildings in the European capital, comprising the largest group of administrative structures in Brussels: 17 buildings for a total area of over 600,000 m2. Around half a million people from Europe and beyond visit the plenary chamber, or “Hemicycle” of the EP each year.

“The renewal of our contract underscores the European Parliament’s trust in our multidisciplinary team of experts and our partners. Together, we will continue to provide top-quality advice to ensure the best possible architectural, functional and technical quality in these prestigious buildings. We look forward to contributing to the sustainable development of the Parliament in Brussels over the next four years.”
