This summer, Aertssen Terrassements vigorously went to work in Tertre, near Mons. We demolished the former business premises at a coal-mining site in the Borinage. An impressive assignment that was executed quickly and safely!

A little bit less history

Until a few weeks ago, you could see the old Tertre coal mine in Hainaut. Charcoal was mined here until 1971. After it closed down, Zircor took over the buildings and produced fireproof materials for glass ovens. When Zircor was taken over in 2012 by the SGI group (Societe de Gestion Industrielle), the buildings became vacant once more. There were no new plans for them, so they were mercilessly demolished. Fortunately, a new chapter is dawning for the 7 hectares of land. Aertssen Terrassements is ensuring that a fresh start can be made here. We demolished 16 buildings, including all the asbestos present and cleared up the concrete paving and the railway tracks.

Race against time

For this demolition work, we kept to a strict planning. In only three months’ time, we finished the job within the proposed budget. We have the necessary people and power to turn this challenge into a great success. A new piece of history may be written starting from September 2016.
