Abbott’s challenge for Van Looy Group was initially to make a 2nd opinion analysis on an existing design of the new EDC. Soon after revealing the potential for significant CAPEX and OPEX reductions by an alternative, improved design, Van Looy Group was rewarded with the architectural design and the detailed engineering for the logistics, technical utilities and building.
