CEFIC choix Daniel

The European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), the voice of the European chemical industry, will be moving in January 2019 to its new headquarters at Belliard 40, the flagship project of real estate company Cofinimmo.

CEFIC, which currently has more than 10,000 sq m of office space at the Serenitas building in Auderghem, has signed a long-term lease agreement for over 6,000 sq m which will be shared with PlasticsEurope and several other affiliates.

Business Space helped guide CEFIC through a study of needs and contract negotiations helping realise the opportunity to move from a 30-year-old building to a brand new project located in the heart of the Leopold Quarter. Belliard 40 is expected to achieve "BREEAM Excellent" certification, thanks to an eco-friendly design and construction equipment.

CEFIC represents large, medium and small chemical companies across Europe, which directly provide 1.2 million jobs.

‘We absolutely wanted to have a 100% independent advisor who would help us navigate the complex Brussels office space market and guide us through these sensitive negotiations.

Business Space took the challenge head on and quickly became a trusted partner in the process. The end result is a brand new building in a prime location for an exceptional budget. I particularly appreciated the direct and personal contact with Daniel Coltof.’
