The Port Authority will put up a new building for the Inland Navigation Department on Rigakaai. This building will be at a highly strategic location in the harbour, along Vliegtuiglaan, one of the most important routes to the harbour, and near Grootdok, close to the moorings of the Port Authority boats (harbour yacht, water boat, police boat, etc.) and where the cruise ships moor. The building has a floor area of about 300 sq. m.
Because of its location, the Port Authority has chosen to give this building a certain allure. It should represent the port of Ghent: innovative, dynamic and sustainable.
In addition to the design of the building, a proposal should be made for upgrading the public space on Rigakaai, where the cruise ships and harbour yacht moor.
The building must be sustainable. A conscious choice has been made for a low-energy building.
overall fee between 10% and 12%
