Renovation works, in particular energy, begin at the Royal Palace of Brussels

This work should last about a year and a half and cost some 6 million euros.

According to the Secretary of State in charge of the Régie des Bâtiments, Mathieu Michel (MR), they will take place in two phases. The first will concern the facades on the left side of the palace – seen from the front – and of the central building. The work on the right side of the facade will be carried out during the second phase.

Started last Monday, the installation of the scaffolding will last between two and three weeks. A tarpaulin with a visual will be deployed to protect the site throughout the work. More broadly, the objective is to reduce CO₂ emissions and reduce the Royal Palace’s energy consumption by 20%.

In this context, renovation work on the heating installations is also planned.

In 2019-2020, the Régie des Bâtiments carried out various studies to determine the best measures to take. During the 2020-2021 heating seasons, it analyzed the energy meter readings so. In 2022, the trench heating pipes were replaced between the boiler room and the main building. In 2023, the Régie plans to begin asbestos removal in the basements and to fit out the gas cabin.

During the summers of 2024 and 2025, it will replace the main heating circuits, before the renovation of the boiler room and the substations (2025).
