In 2010, the Brussels government asked the regional public bodycitydev.brussels to revitalize the Cureghem site in Anderlecht, Belgium.
This large-scale urban program, renamed CityGate, divided into three complementary mixed phases, will change the face of this district over a total area of more than 90,000 m².
The first works began in 2017 with the first phase of the project, CityGate I, which aims to meet the needs of the district in housing, economic activities and equipment.
This fantastic new construction project is located in a green setting, on the outskirts of Brussels.
The CEMEXA / CHRYSO teams participated in the creation of 3000m2 of fluid cement screed on this set of buildings.
- Sreed: CHRYSO®Mobicem C20
- Evaporation Reducing Agent: CHRYSO®Screed Finish EBA 50
Project technical challenges
For the pouring of this liquid cement screed, the technical challenge was to pour the screed when the site is not completely “weathertight”.
This configuration requires the selection of a high-tech screed solution.
The technical teams and the applicator combined the robustness of the CHRYSO®Mobicem C20 screed with the high protection of the CHRYSO®Screed Finish EBA 50 curing and fixing agent, to ensure good surface cohesion and obtain a robustness screed with a beautiful surface finishing .

In November 2020 started the construction in South Africa of the Vlakfontein reservoir in Benoni, Gauteng. The circular post-tensioned reservoir, which will store 213.4 million litres of potable water, is the country’s largest cylindrical post-tensioned concrete reservoir, one of the biggest in the world. Due to its enormous size, it may also be classified as a dam.
