Best car park in Europe built by our teams from De Graeve and Duchêne

The Interparking Confluence in Namur, built by our teams from De Graeve and Duchêne, was recently hailed ‘Best New Car Park’ in Europe at the Congress of the EPA (European Parking Association) thanks to the quality of its facilities.

Located at the confluence of the Sambre and Meuse rivers on the iconic Grognon site, the car park has 670 spaces and opened its doors on 30 June 2021.

The parking complex consists of four underground storeys each measuring 5,000 m², and was constructed down to 12 metres below ground level, with 9 metres of the car park located under the level of the Sambre and Meuse rivers. This meant the works were quite complex.

Clément Deveugle, managing director of De Graeve: “The construction of a four-storey underground car park fully enclosed between the rivers Sambre and the Meuse was a real challenge for our teams and partners. We were compelled to start with the building envelope including the roof, and then carry out the remaining activities and earthworks through an opening in the middle of the roofing. We are immensely proud to have brought these complex works to a successful end on this iconic site for the residents of Namur.”

Congratulations to our teams at De Graeve and Duchêne for successfully completing this challenging project and contributing to the fine recognition of the site.
