All the activities carried out by high-tech company Barco in Belgium are centralised at its One Campus, in Kennedypark in Kortrijk. ENGIE Fabricom helped create warm, pleasant spaces in the modern complex, where employees, customers and partners feel welcome and inspired.
We’ve built a sustainable partnership with Barco. During the renovation and new build projects on the One Campus, we resorted to a wide range of our in-house expertise.
ENGIE Fabricom’s role
The One Campus consists of several interconnected buildings:
- ‘The Circle’ is the round central main building, which appears to consist entirely of glass. It is connected to the old factory area, which also received a facelift. In this building, our team was responsible for the electrical work in a 22,000 m² area consisting of offices, a multifunctional auditorium, a training centre, a meeting deck spread over three floors, and an atrium with a company restaurant. The flagship in the Circle is the Barco Experience Centre, which is equipped with the company’s most advanced visualisation solutions. ENGIE Fabricom also executed the LV, MV and HV installations in the entire building, as well as the data cabling, access control, fire detection with BEAM detectors, burglary protection, and video network, among other things.
- The site also houses ‘The Lab’, where the R&D department is found. ENGIE Fabricom again provided the electrical installations, power supplies, lighting, data cabling, and security systems in this area. ENGIE also carried out similar work in ‘The Pulse’, an additional office building.
- The last building in the complex is ‘The Engine’, which houses offices, part of the production, and a cleanroom. ENGIE Fabricom’s teams were operational on the site while the buildings were being erected, and are now responsible for the maintenance of the technical equipment. Our responsibility covers standard electrical facilities such as distribution boards, cabling, power rails, lighting, access control, burglary detection, fire detection, the public address system, and CCTV.
- We also took care of the outdoor lighting on the roads around the building, the barriers, and the number plate recognition system in the visitor car park.
