Our office and factory in Wijnegem have housed 180 employees since 1966. After the complete renovation, the office is now a state-of-the-art facility, thanks to ROCKWOOL Group's innovative solutions for both the interior and exterior of the building. Highly innovative acoustic solutions are used across the office space. Moreover, by utilising ROCKWOOL insulation, we can reduce energy consumption by more than 76%. Last Friday, the new office was opened by Flemish Minister-President Jan Jambon and Odd Sinding, Ambassador of Denmark, together with Parik Chopra, Managing Director of Rockfon Europe and Asia.
Older buildings can be a challenge for several reasons, both for the occupants and the environment. The Rockfon office in Wijnegem was no exception. The outdated building was no longer suitable for a modern office space and the energy consumption was too high. In order to minimise the environmental impact, we decided to renovate instead of building a new office. This decision is perfectly in line with the ROCKWOOL Group's goal of reducing the overall’s energy consumption in offices worldwide by 75% by 2030.
