From shell to shopping centre

In 1909, the former post office building in Gent was located on a busy crossroads of access roads into the city. The first postilions and horse cars used to stop here. The richly decorated building has been turned into the ‘De Post’ shopping centre.

MVRO – in collaboration with M-to-Build – was responsible for making the shell ready for build. Work included the management and coordination of electricity and plumbing work, painting, signage, new sliding glass doors, air treatment installation and toilet facilities all for the public areas.

MVRO was also responsible for getting the required permits and negotiations with the city council.
