The Winners

EVS Broadcast Equipment - Office Space of the Year 2018

On top of gathering all employees under one single roof, the new headquarter had to answer to a lot of specific needs, including large amount of technology equipment, an assembling line, R&D open cells or training rooms. Most of the employees have a direct view on the wooden environment of Sart-Tilman. All the touches of colors in the building reflect the passionate side of the company and its employees. People have been put at the center of the project, with facilities to promote sports, a nap room, a nice restaurant with fresh fruits available and a great terrace for summertime or a central coffee corner to foster informal discussions, all those around the central atrium and illuminated by its large skylight. A special attention to limit the impact on the environment was obvious, with many energy-saving methods, such as “free cooling” to cool premises, low-energy lighting and recuperation of the heat generated by the servers (for heating).

"It's a great reward for a company like ours where our employees are the main value." says Muriel De Lathouwer, CEO EVS Broadcast Equipment. "Our new building brings a certain sense of well-being to our employees. It is in line with our corporate culture. We developed a new way of working which includes exchanges between collaborators. Finally, beyond the salary package and the working environment, we also offer concert tickets, profit share or a whole series of promotional activities to our employees."
