Ageas, a multinational insurance company co-headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, recently announced that Ageas Real Estate, completed its 100th school infrastructure project. Remarkably, delivery of a brand new building for primary school De Horizon in West Flanders occurred just under four years after construction commenced on the very first "School of Tomorrow" in Belgium. The ambitious project is a public-private partnership between the AG Group and the Flemish government. Ageas is Belgium's largest insurer, employs over 40,000 people, and operates in 14 countries worldwide. While Ageas Real Estate is responsible for the operational side of the school construction projects, Ageas is covering the costs of design, including the building, financing, and maintenance of all school facilities for the first 30 years.
