Special partnership for Dutch sports hall

In the Dutch town of Vaals, the foundation stone for a new sports hall was laid yesterday by the Mayor and a councillor of the council, together with the director of Heton.

Special partnership: operation, ownership and strategy
Vaals Council and Heton are in a special partnership for the project: Heton is the operator as well as the owner of the building and as such will be responsible for healthy operation including financing, maintenance, energy use and staff. The council remains responsible for the strategy and price levels for the users of the sports hall.

At the moment, masonry works are in full swing, and the complete steel structure is expected to be finished before the summer construction stop. By the end of the year, pupils from two schools and the local sports clubs will be using the sports hall, which can also be used as community hall
