Samenvatting

Fireproof mill construction had been developed in England at the end of the 18th century. In Brussels, the first large fireproof building was constructed in 1844–1847. All at once, the backlog of 50 years was eliminated. Moreover, for Brussels, the experimental period just started. Not bound by traditions, new techniques and materials were soon adopted. The evolution of the construction history of fireproof building in Brussels is discussed by going more deeply into the construction of six buildings, erected between 1844 and 1870.
