Belgium Gazet van Antwerpen - Belgium (visited June 2013)

Recommended Posts

Very short explore, as the building was almost completely empty. 

I ended up with just a few close-ups/details...

 

Used to be a building from the local Antwerp newspaper. It looked like they actually used to press/print the papers there as well, long time ago. Now all remained was a large, very empty machine hall and some offices and remains of the archive.

I think the building has shortly been occupied by a local Bank, after the newspaper left. (Based on the 'Bank Antwerp' stickers, all over the place..)

Not much more to tell, so on with the picas...

      This was an odd explore, from the front of the building it looked like a standard office block but the inside told a different story.
      First off, some fairly standard looking CNC machines - but the further in we ventured the clearer it became. There was an entire production line left in situ for making alloy wheels!
      Each stage of the build process had its own machining area and the wheels were transported from one area to the next on a huge conveyor system - everything from milling, shot blasting, heat treatment, lacquering and pressure testing. Many of the machines had lot numbers attached and it was my guess that it wouldn't be long before everything including an immaculate rack of machine tools were auctioned off.
      We gradually made our way to the front of the building, where the only notable room was a small laboratory - still half equipped. An enjoyable explore and a good end to the day.
      Visited with Jaff Fox and thanks to H for his info.














      This sign, roughly translated means: food and drink are strictly prohibited in the lacquer plant.

      After trying to see as much of Belgium as we could in four days, we all decided that im power station would be high on the list . The size of this place is immense and i found myself putting my tripod down wondering round and absorbing as much of the place as possible ive been back twice to this site and shots are from all three trips my apologies for not being able to find any history ...
      on with the pics ...
