Build for your business in Flanders

Various types of spaces, all affordable

When comparing the costs of building across countries, Belgium – and Flanders as a region – is less expensive than Germany, France, the Netherlands and the UK across the board. This is especially true for:

  • heated offices in city center;
  • air conditioned offices in city center;
  • out-of-town business parks.

In terms of residential and retail building prices, Belgium is very reasonably-priced compared to its neighbors for:

  • high-rise apartments;
  • shopping centers;
  • high-quality capital city hotels.

Inexpensive building materials, productive workers

Building materials in Flanders are inexpensive compared to neighboring countries, but costs for all levels of labor are on the high side. However, Flanders has the world’s 4th-most productive workforce per hour worked (source: US Conference Board, 2016). In other words: workers in the region will accomplish more in an hour than lower-paid workers in other countries, and you can rest assured that your investment will pay off in time and quality.
