NedZink – as part of the Koramic Investment Group – is extremely proud to have contributed to this impressive project by delivering the titanium zinc for the building. The roof is the largest zinc roof in Europe.

The eight wings, each 200 metres long and 18 metres wide, and the seven connecting parts are covered with an astonishing 35,000 m2 of sleek NedZink NOVA Pro-Tec standing seam bays. These zinc bays (each 26 metres long), were profiled directly on site. It took three years to complete the construction of this enormous roof –   a perfect example of the craftsmanship of the Dutch company Ridder/Skins for Buildings.

The BAM Alliance consortium was responsible for the construction of the 250,000m2 new NATO headquarters, based on a design by SOM and the Belgian ASSAR Architects. The intertwined wings symbolise the unity and collaboration of the alliance joining forces for a better future.

At NedZink, quality and service take centre stage. In this project, very high standards were set for the quality and processing of the products used. As a result, NedZink is extremely honoured and proud to have contributed to the construction of this new NATO headquarters in Brussels.
