About the project

The assignment consisted of the design, construction, financing and operation of two private underground car parks and one public car park.
The underground car parks have a joint capacity of 792 spaces. The work also comprised the above-ground public infrastructure. This consisted of a tourist building, the reconstruction of the former lighthouse, a square and roads around the Lichttorenplein and the construction of a public park with the integration of engineering structures above the Ijzerparking.
The construction work was carried out as a joint venture in which Wyckaert had a 50 % share.  The project partnership Lighthouse Parkings, with Wyckaert having a 33% share, took responsibility for the acquisition of the land and commercialisation.
The works include structural work, finishing, technical facilities and landscaping.
