Safe and smooth shipping traffic to, from and in the Antwerp port area is of the utmost importance. In order to continue to guarantee this and continuously improve, proper coordination and collaboration between all partners in the nautical chain is crucial. The revamped ACC will act as a lever to achieve that.
With a total floor space of 8,000 m², the state-of-the-art ACC will replace the current coordination centre at the Zandvliet-Berendrecht lock and will aim to promote collaboration between all actors within the nautical chain. The future-proof common work floor with a surface area of no less than 1,000 m² will occupy an important position in this story.
The design of the building aims to create a spatial structure that is generous. Stacking functional elements on top of one another creates a compact volume with minimal impact on the surroundings. This will create a green, ecologically responsible meeting place with a surface area of about 10,000 m².
