The core title Ik ga Bouwen en Renoveren, supplemented by various directories, guides and events, goes to the heart of building and renovating, with various communication platforms informing builders and converters of each key moment in the building and renovation process.
The monthly magazine Ik ga Bouwen en Renoveren (circulation: 30,000 copies Du/Fr) is an inspiring, practical monthly magazine for anyone considering building or renovating: technical tips, legal advice, architects’ recent work, kitchens, sanitary equipment, interest rates. Ik ga Bouwen en Renoveren offers a broad range of interesting building information for all amateurs and professionals.
Annual directories and guides like the special edition, published as a supplement to the Knack/Weekend Knack and Le Vif/L’Express/ Le Vif-Weekend packages, with a circulation 265,000 copies, the Renovatiegids (12,000 copies Dutch / 12,000 French), the Nieuwbouwgids (12,000 copies Dutch/8000 copies French) and the Gids Duurzaam bouwen en energie (sustainable building and energy – 20,000 copies) gather all relevant information about specific items.
The official Batibouw building exhibition catalogue (24,000 Dutch copies / 16,000 French copies) can today boast a community of 370,000 interested readers. The catalogue Mijn Huis Mijn Architect is published in 17,700 copies (9,600 Dutch / 8,100 French).
Events like the Nieuwbouwdag (new building day) (35,000 visitors) and De Vlaamse Renovatiedag (30,000 visitors) are backed every time by a specific thematic edition/guide for builders and converters. The two-day event ‘My House, my Architect’, held in collaboration with the Orde van de Architecten NAV and FISA nv welcomed a record 30,000 visitors in 2007. These enthusiastic builders and converters visited almost 220 opened apartments.
Expertise in the market has led to a number of tailor-made magazines and cooperation agreements with various federations and organizations. EPB and Belgian Building Magazines (BBM) have since been extended within Custom Media, a division of Roularta Media Group.
Needless to say, all content is also available on the specialized www.ikgabouwen.be website. On this brand-new website potential builders and converters can find a host of information on building, renovating, gardens, terraces and internal decoration. The same passion for building and converting can also be found on the new ‘Ik ga Bouwen & Renoveren’ website.
