On Wednesday 15 June, the construction site of the King Albert II Institute was inaugurated in the presence of King Albert II himself, former King of the Belgians and father of the current King Philippe, Queen Paola, the Minister for Education, Scientific Research and University Hospitals, Valérie Glatigny, and the Mayor of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Olivier Maingain.
The Albert II Institute of the Saint-Luc University Clinics in Brussels is a reference in Europe and a leader in French-speaking Belgium for the treatment of adult and child cancers. In addition to clinical care, the institute stands out for its cutting-edge research and teaching activities.
The construction of the Institute's new building was awarded to Wust, a BESIX Group subsidiary, and Moury. It will enable the oncology and haematology activities to be grouped together in a single building of approximately 20,000 m².
Work began in January, with completion of the structural work scheduled for 2023 and opening in 2024.
