On Monday 14 September, a start was made on the construction of 29 social and life-cycle proof rental homes on the site of the former Gerardusschool in Oude Wetering. The flats will be built on behalf of housing corporation MeerWonen. The municipality of Kaag and Braassem is responsible for making the plan area ready for building and living and will soon hand over the land to be built on to MeerWonen.
Bébouw Midreth, part of VolkerWessels, was commissioned by MeerWonen to design the residential building with DE Architekten and is taking care of the construction. The homes will be life-cycle-proof, gas-free and as self-sufficient in terms of energy as possible.
