It will also build a hospital wing for Universitatsklinikum Jena at Rosenthaler Strasse. Designed by Munich’s WTR Architekten, the six-storey building will include radiotherapy and an intensive care unit. The €35m project is due to be completed in March 2021.
GalÃ¨re, BAM’s Belgian operating company, has been awarded a contract by the Walloon government for the first phase of the refurbishment of the Monsin dam, which crosses the Meuse river. It will work in a joint venture with Luxembourg firm Jan De Nul, with the €20m contract split evenly between them.
The 1930s dam connects the right bank of the Meuse with the island of Monsin, located between the Meuse and the Albert Canal.
