‘De Vlaamse Waterweg’ (management agency for Flemish waterways) has appointed Via T Albert to rebuild eight bridges over the Albert Canal in order to increase the passage height. OMGEVING is part of this partnership and will take care of the infrastructure design and the landscaping.
During the ‘DBFM-procedure’ OMGEVING, led by Franki Construct and in close collaboration with team partner Greisch, has elaborated the landscape and ecological integration of the bridges. In the implementation phase OMGEVING will act as aesthetic supervisor for the works or art and will be involved in drawing up the implementation plans.
This assignment follows a previous, similar project in the context of upgrading the Albert Canal where the team was responsible for the reconstruction of seven bridges at the end of 2017.
