Aannemingsbedrijf Aertssen has completed the final phase for the demolition of the buildings that formerly housed the newspaper, Gazet Van Antwerpen.

The newspaper’s offices and printing works were put into use in 1973. The editorial and business departments moved in October 2009 to the adjacent new building in the Katwilgweg on the Left Bank. The first step was to sort by hand the furniture and a mountain made up of different waste streams and then recycle the lot. That made room for our demolition equipment. The old buildings are being demolished because they no longer fit with the new Land Use Plan and because the high standards for insulation that must be met these days. Starting from mid-2014 there will be space for a new, modern, SME-zone.
