In the Prijkels industrial zone, between Kruisem and Nazareth, construction work started on Renson’s brand new Outdoor Experience Center in 2019. The ‘outdoor living’ flagship must become the international reference for total experience in the garden. The fire protection of the project was from A to Z in the hands of Lybover.
With a dedicated team and one dedicated point of contact, communication and planning went smoothly throughout.
The new Renson complex along the E17 motorway houses both production, offices, test and training centres and a showroom for ‘outdoor living’, the youngest and at the same time fastest growing division of the Renson group.
Dieter Heyman (Business Unit Manager Outdoor Renson): “The entire ‘Outdoor Living’ business of Renson moves to thePrijkels. That means terrace roofs, carports, wall cladding, garden walls, … But also garden lighting and other designer garden elements will roll off the production line here.
A job for specialists who are not afraid of anything
But there is also space for a test centre, training facilities, offices and a showroom of no less than 10,000 m², which we fill in together with other top-outdoor producers of garden furniture, jacuzzis, outdoor kitchens, garden lighting, … We want to immerse our visitors in a dream world where all the elements in the garden are perfectly attuned to each other.”
With a total area of 10 hectares, including 65,000 m² of built-up area and 10,000 m² of showroom, the fire compartmentation was a job for specialists who are not afraid of anything.
After an extensive consultation round Lybover turned out to be the partner for Renson with the knowledge and know-how and the ability to keep an overview.
And so Lybover was involved in the fire compartmentalisation of all production buildings from the very beginning.
Renson was spared a great deal of headaches by contracting all aspects of fire compartmentalisation to a single party. Production and installation could be planned perfectly and then realised in record time. Even service and maintenance after delivery were in the scope of Lybover. For projects of this scale, the one-stop-shopping that Lybover can offer is indeed a unique and worry-free package.
Proactively identify, discuss and resolve bottlenecks
Moreover, with its various centres of expertise in engineering and fire safety Lybover can offer a true 360-degree approach. This way we can proactively identify, discuss and solve potential bottlenecks. For this project, too, we provided a total solution in terms of fire compartmentalisation, in accordance with current Belgian legislation and taking Renson’s wishes into account.
