The Rogier Tower: a successful partnership that keeps growing

23 December 2020

EQUANS is responsible for the technical maintenance and energy management of Belfius' head office in Brussels. This is a successful partnership that has existed for 15 years already and is continuing to grow.

The Rogier Tower in Brussels has 38 floors and is 135 metres high. The construction, which our sister entity ENGIE Tractebel contributed to, was completed in 2006. Our teams have taken care of maintaining the technical installations ever since. EQUANS was responsible for managing the installer’s guarantee to begin with. The services provided by EQUANS have grown in size over the years, and our teams now manage all the building technologies.

Technical maintenance and energy management

How do we recognise the Rogier Tower? This exceptional building has a sloped roof and is divided into three inclined sections. It is one of the few skyscrapers in the world with a fully glass roof. The building has 38 floors, 5400 windows, 12 lifts, numerous kitchens and technical installations that accommodate 4200 people. A team from EQUANS is permanently on site to maintain the HVAC, sanitary facilities, sprinklers, kitchens, electricity and lighting. EQUANS is also responsible for maintaining the LED lighting on the 4 façades, which immerses Brussels in a magical atmosphere with projected light animations in this winter period. We also maintain all the blinds which the light animations are projected onto. This task was not one of EQUANS’ core skills, but the customer is highly satisfied with the technical solutions proposed by our teams.

Smart equipment for optimal management

Predictive maintenance is carried out to prevent faults and interruptions. Intelligent equipment and performance indicators enable our teams to intervene before a fault occurs. This means we can limit the impact of maintenance interventions on the customer’s productivity. Energy consumption performance obligations must be met, and EQUANS has therefore implemented equipment such as the centralised technical management, which guarantees optimal energy management for all technical installations in the building.

Belfius Art Gallery

Another successful realisation in the Rogier Tower for the EQUANS teams is their participation in the implementation of the Belfius Art Gallery. In 2015, EQUANS was commissioned to integrate all the gallery’s special technologies in record time: electrical installations, HVAC and LED lighting. This exhibition space is located on the skyscraper’s 32nd floor and is home to one of the most beautiful private art collections in Belgium. The Belfius collection is comprised of over 4300 works of art covering almost five centuries. The art gallery uses the latest technology and can be visited virtually,  just like you were actually there in person!

Space optimisation

EQUANS also provides expertise is space optimisation for Belfius – a challenge that most office space managers now have to contend with. EQUANS has experience in Smart Buildings: intelligent and innovative applications that improve the working and living environments for users of office and parking spaces. This includes the use of data to optimise the management of buildings and make them profitable. The key to this successful partnership? The teams from EQUANS are proactive and constantly adapting the services provided to meet the customer’s needs.
