Group-IPS develops new filling line facility for Hoegaarden:
Creative solution from project management to architecture
In 2018, AB InBev, manufacturer of the world-famous Belgian beer Hoegaarden, approached Group-IPS with a request to come up with the best location and layout for a new can filling line. From masterplan, through project management, to architecture, and engineering, we had to find new ways to satisfy the business needs as well as meet specific requests from the municipal authorities and locals. Not only did we manage to meet the first sellable product deadline, but we also delivered a future-proof facility with aesthetic architecture reminiscent of the signature glass of Hoegaarden.
