The new campus ‘Parkschool’ located in park “Oude God” in Mortsel accommodates three existing schools. The new school complex is a sustainable, energy efficient building.
The competition for the design contract was won by Crepain Binst Architecture in 2005. Two years later the city council decided to upgrade the design to a passive building. Since 2011 the project has joined the DBFM program “Scholen van Morgen”.
The planned phase 1 (primary school and sports complex) takes place spring 2015. Phase 2 (preschool) is planned summer 2016.
The new school will accommodate 650 students: 18 classrooms for the primary school and 12 for the preschool. The construction program comprises in total 6345m² of which 5287m² for the school and 1058m³ sports complex.
