Cordeel entered into a public-private partnership with the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK-CEN) and the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) and is responsible for the project. The initiative is supported by the Flemish Department of Environment and the Flanders Heritage Agency. Some 190 housing units will be thoroughly renovated in the first phase.

In addition to renewing the local infrastructure and surroundings as well as mains pipes, a new heat network will be constructed. Under the DBFM contract concluded with SCK and VITO, Cordeel will also be responsible for maintenance of the public domain and several important buildings for a period of 25 years.
