Ingenium Group is unique, because of a combination of factors, each of them valuable in itself. They are the common thread in our sustainable collaboration with clients, construction partners and employees.
Our employees are extraordinary in many areas, but the term ‘extraordinary’ certainly applies to the projects they participate in. 'Copy-paste engineering and advice' is not for us. We like to sink our teeth into complex projects that challenge us to reinvent ourselves over and over again and give the best of ourselves. And we are equally as happy to take our clients outside their comfort zones, already providing answers to questions that they would otherwise only ask themselves at a later date.
Sustainability is the D in the DNA of Ingenium Group. We are possessed by and passionate about it. Not because we want to surf the hype, but because we have long been convinced of it, working towards a sustainable planet that also offers a bright future for our future generations. We ignore short-term solutions and patchwork and focus fully on the entire life cycle of a building or site. We are transparent about the cost of sustainable technologies, with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which, in addition to the initial investment, also factors in the operating costs for the coming decades.
As pioneers in sustainability, innovation is as natural to us as breathing, eating and drinking. At home and abroad, we keep our finger on the pulse, to discover innovative technologies and applications, to make them even better by adding our own expertise, and to formulate them as answers to our customers’ questions and needs. In the same way, we are fully committed to digital tools that render our own work processes more efficient, making maximum use of digitization, artificial intelligence and machine learning to fine-tune building techniques and to monitor and adjust better (and remotely), with a view to maximum comfort and minimum energy costs.
Innovation as a way of life
Despite its long history of strong growth, Ingenium Group remains clearly a family business. No short-term policy with quick profits and an immense workload, but a well-considered long-term vision and permanent attention to sustainable relationships with all stakeholders and employees. Engineering is people work, which is why we devote a lot of time and resources to make every employee feel good about himself or herself. With a tailor-made approach – and two at-home working days for everyone – we ensure a good balance between working time and other life areas. And should you face with difficult moments in your personal or family life, we will not leave you out in the cold, but we will look for a solution together. And yes, it may seem like a detail, but here we address everyone by their first name, from cleaning lady to CEO.
Employees with a sense of entrepreneurship are the driving force of our companies. We encourage them to develop self-leadership, to model their own jobs in line with their interests and passions, and to take responsibility for further shaping and growing Ingenium Group together with their colleagues. Self-managing teams ensure a flat hierarchy with short decision lines and a division of roles tailored to each employee.
Intra- en entrepreneurs
At Ingenium Group, we are happy to invent hot water when it comes to real innovations, but we avoid having to reheat that water every time. Our more than fifty years of accumulated knowledge and expertise are not stored just in the heads of individual employees. They are 'secured' in a structured, efficient way throughout the organization, making them easy to consult and re-use again and again by new employees and for new projects and applications. In this way we ensure the continuity and permanent growth of our expertise.
In all our activities we show respect for each other as human beings.
We provide independent advice and are reliable partners.
We show respect for society and the natural environment in which we live.
We inspire our clients and partners by developing ground-breaking ideas.
We seek inspiring examples.

We learn from each other and believe that co-creation offers opportunities to perform better.
We share our knowledge with organizations that also want to improve the world in their own way.
We undertake exceptional projects with exceptional people.
We are inquisitive and open to change.
'Work hard, play hard' is our motto, we also excel in relaxing.

“At Ingenium we don't just work on 'a' building. These are really cool projects. When I speak to friends or family about cable ducts or transformers, it means little to them.” (laughs) “But if I can tell them I‘m working on projects at the Brussels Conservatory or the Ghent Fire Station, it certainly speaks to their imagination.”Discover more
"Every day is full of opportunities. Everyone can make the choices that allow them to be happy. It’s hard work. Sometimes you have setbacks. You have to get over them. And It’s important to celebrate the successes. I myself am glad when I see people grow and blossom out. I work every day to make things as pleasant as possible for everyone at Ingenium, so that people can do what they love to do and also make their own dreams come true.”Discover more
“What I like about my job is that I master certain tasks well and do them very efficiently because I've been at them for so long. But I’m also open to new tasks and challenges, because then you stay 'fresh'. What gives me even more satisfaction is teamwork: interacting with colleagues and completing an assignment together.”Discover more
