Sum @ Virunga National Park

The Virunga National Park, located in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, is the continent’s most biologically diverse protected area. A local team of over 600 rangers safeguard the Park’s exceptional wildlife, including the last of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas. Our IT-support Yaska has been working with Virunga National Park for the past year and a half in order to improve their IT-infrastructure and internet access. SumProject + SumResearcht is happy to donate 15 desktop computers to the park's dedicated team. A small contribution to the amazing work they do day and night.

The Brussels Low Line: works around ‘Bourse’ will start

The refurbishment of the Central Lanes arrived at the Bourse. We will start with the 'rue Jules Van Praet straat', 'rue Paul Devauxstrat' and the 'Boulevard Anspachlaan' between the 'rue des Pierres / Steenstraat' and the 'rue du Marché aux Poulets / Kiekenmarkt'. In the central strip of the 'boulevard Anspachlaan' a waterproofing will reinforce the roof of metro station Bourse. Subsequently, the side strips along the facades of the buildings will be refurbished. These works should be completed by the end of the summer of 2019, subject to favourable weather conditions. Afterwards, work will be done on the 'Place de la Bourse / Beursplein' and in the 'rue Ortsstraat'.

Second phase of the tramline 9 project starts!

The works on the extension of tramline 9, designed by SumProject, will start on February 18. The first phase was inaugurated in September by our King Philippe. The new extension connects the current terminus 'Arbre Ballon / Dikke Beuk' with the metro station 'Roi Baudouin / Koning Boudewijn'. The extension is 1.5 kilometres long and will be completely separated from the car traffic. More than 100 new trees will be added along the green trajectory. The construction of this phase will take about two years. © Quentin Jo
