The new administrative building for the EC, the Jean Monnet 2, will be built in the large parking lot of the previous "Jean Monnet" complex. Developed from a joint project between JSWD Architects (Cologne), Chaix & Morel et Associés (Paris) and Bertrand Schmit (Luxembourg), the new building will replace an office building built in 1975.
The construction of the new European Commission building aims are:
- To be built with a low energy impact;
- Not disrupt the traffic around the site.
This site, which began in September 2019, will end in 2024 with the construction of a 22-storey tower as final phase.
HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THESE TASKS?
By implementing the use of energy-efficient techniques and limit the number of trucks in and out from the construction sites.
SO WHAT MEANS CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE?
An MB Crusher bucket BF120.4 and the MB-S18 screening bucket took duty.
The new Jean Monnet 2 foundation will be built from its own ground and the old Jean Monnet remains.
