Sofics moves into new building


On June 7th Sofics moved to its newly built office in Aalter. The building was carefully designed and built applying and importing the most modern techniques to enable our engineers to deliver top quality advanced technology solutions to Sofics customers in a stimulating environment.
The lab space was tripled in floor space. More meeting and break-out rooms, equipped with high-tech smart boards are available. A large lunch room – we call it “Bistro 32” – offers space and opportunity for relaxation, breaks and casual conversations.
The workplace comfort is maximized. The office design pre-qualified as an ‘almost-energy-neutral building’ and the first qualification tests indicate that we actually may have built an energy passive office. A green environment completes with flowers, fruit trees and bushes the welcoming atmosphere at our new address: Sint-Godelievestraat 32, 9880 Aalter.
