The Municipality of Willebroek owns a great deal of infrastructure for sport and culture, as do many others. This includes things like football fields and club canteens, sports halls, meeting centres, cultural centres, etc. The majority of these premises were in need of extensive renovation, but the municipality was facing an investment backlog. There was also a lack of a concrete vision owing to a long-standing ad hoc approach and the municipality was struggling with management issues.
In a rapidly changing social context, whereby the membership numbers at sports clubs are rising sharply and the parochial club life is more likely to fall away and be replaced by activities that are more aimed at personal experience and quality time with the family, it makes more sense to abandon a number of buildings and rebuild via concepts adapted for the current functional requirements, at locations that are better suited to this. The municipality had noticed shortages in other places.
The municipality also wished to optimise the management and encourage joint use so as to get the greatest social benefit from all the accommodations.
