Cond'Or

Belgium


Plasterboard Batilook

The architecture of this building has been developed from an existing building on to which three floors have been added The exterior of the old facade is now updated to an impressive façade in white stone of Marbella. The large bay windows and terraces have been updated with blue stone which provides a spectacular, timeless look. The Condor Residence has 78 modern and luxuriously finished apartments. Designed to integrate the technologies of tomorrow, these apartments have components of top quality and low energy consumption.

Key Achievements

  • Batilook offers a high standard of quality for a good price.
  • From the beginning, there was a good collaboration between Batilook, the Gyproc prescriber, the Gyproc regional manager and the Gyproc technical team.
  • Thanks to a good experience (and a good job!) with an earlier project, the acoustical engineer and architect were quickly convinced of the quality of the SoundBlock® System.
  • Thanks to the superior quality of the work of Batilook, the daily follow-up at the construction site and the quality of the Gyproc service, all partners in this project belong to a winning team.

Key Challenges

The Cond’Or apartments are among the most expensive apartments in Brussels on one of the most desired locations.

Therefore, one of the biggest challenges was to finish the work in a short time (9 months – about 80.000 m² of boards) at such a high level. Every partner in this project (architect, acoustical engineer and building owner) wanted the highest level of performance or finishing.

The SoundBlock® system is a very performant system on acoustics but it needs special attention when it’s being installed. The smallest mistake would result in a bad sound insulation. Concentrating attention, day after day, on details during the whole process, demanded a special effort and dedication of the team.
