The Urban Development Corporation (SAU) has received 59 proposals in response to the European public procurement notice that it published in early November with a view to appointing the multidisciplinary team responsible for designing and overseeing the construction of a new fire station together with a sports facility open for use by local residents.

The Brussels Region plans to construct the building at 409 Chaussée de Mons, between the Canal and Chaussée de Mons in Anderlecht. The SAU has scheduled its opening for 2024.

The selection procedure will be conducted in two phases. In the selection phase, the SAU will shortlist no more than three to five candidates, who will be asked to submit a preliminary draft design. In the award phase, in collaboration with SIAMU-DBDMH (the fire and emergency medical service) and the municipal authorities in particular, it will pick the successful candidate on the basis of the preliminary drafts.
