Our safety coordinators have the necessary qualifications to take on the statutory function of safety coordination on the biggest building sites. Macobo has been covering this discipline since the law on Temporary and Mobile Construction Sites came into force. Our approach is both innovative and forward-looking. Supported by our proprietary online tool for planning and monitoring, we ensure the efficient safety coordination of your site.

The City of Genk has chosen to give mining site Zwartberg a meaning new function: an artistic natural park. It will be an artistic-tourism site that combines heritage, contemporary art, and biocultural diversity in a unique manner.
It will also include a park pavilion, designed by Van Belle & Medina. This pavilion will also include a location for animal care, besides sanitation facilities and a workshop space. Macobo is responsible for the studies on special techniques, EPB reporting, and the safety coordination.
The building is designed to serve the needed indoor and outdoor areas. The best possible exchange between interior and exterior will be an additional quality. The pavilion is considered a link in this landscape. The intervention affects both the site, infrastructure, landscape and accessibility.
The young and dynamic property developer, 3D Bouw, has started a new project in Ernest Claesstraat in Herentals; Sichem’s erf. The project consists of 28 apartments and a medical practice, spread over three buildings. The project is a good example of how we will try to create more compact town centres in the future.
Koen Dauwen, 3D Bouw manager: “I am convinced that Macobo, with its solid and professional foundations, will be able to guide and supervise all parties involved in today’s complex construction process in the very best way possible. The total package they provide as well as their personal approach creates a pleasant working relationship and undoubtedly represents added value for the realisation of our project. Since we want the BEN project to be profitable, it is important that we can rely on their expertise. Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of implementing energy-saving technologies is crucial for success."
km-architecten was appointed to take care of the architectural aspects of the project. Macobo is responsible for coordinating the construction process; from guiding the developper through the design phase and coordinating between architect and all involved engineers, to monitoring the technical engineering of the project and waterproofing. It also supports and guides the architect throughout the entire construction project. In addition to construction coordination, Macobo is also conducting the studies special techniques and infrastructure and is responsible for safety coordination.Read more
'Schools of Tomorrow' is a PPP (public private partnership) between AG Real Estate, BNP Paribas Fortis and the Flemish government. The programme comprises the design, construction, financing and 30-year maintenance of 200 school buildings. It is a cross-network building programme, and the relevant educational umbrella organisations GO!, Katholiek Onderwijs Vlaanderen (Catholic Education Foundation in Flanders), OVSG (Educational Network for Cities and Municipalities) and POV (Provincial Education in Flanders) provide valuable input throughout the implementation of the projects. In August 2011, Macobo was commissioned to organise the safety coordination for and implementation of projects at locations in the provinces of Antwerp and Flemish Brabant.

The contract is part of an attempt to eliminate black spots and dangerous stretches of road in Flanders and includes the renovation of the Kempen Steenweg in Zonhoven from the link with the Hasseltse Beverzakstraat to the intersection with the Heuveneindeweg. Significant changes relative to the previous situation include the extension of the bus lane in the direction of Hasselt and the slip road from Hasselt towards Beringen. A service road is constructed for the traders across the Beringersteenweg and the cycle path is separate and raised. While the road is being modified, a separate sewer system is also being installed. Macobo is responsible for the safety coordination within the framework contract for AWV Limburg.Read more
The new building meets the stringent requirements for almost energy-neutral (AEN) construction and is equipped with solar panels and geothermal energy. The additional investment in energy-saving measures and renewable energy are paying for themselves through low energy bills. Macobo took care of the feasibility studies, EPBD reporting, special systems studies and safety coordination. LED lighting, solar panels and geometry, among others, were used in this project. Passive cooling was specifically chosen to obtain a very low E-level. Not only were the systems chosen carefully, the materials, too, were thoroughly discussed and calculated.Read more
