During the technical visits, Buildwise will show two of its facilities. The first facility is the research station in Limelette. The second facility is its new headquarters located in Lozenberg.

Many research project are undertaken within the research facility in Limelette. The water tower, which is noticable from far away, is an experimental station where research is carried out on new water technics. This well equipped research station can be adapted according to the needs of the water laboratory. Experiments are carried out for research subjects such as domestic hot water, water drainage and water reuse are routinely carried out in the water tower.

The headquarters located in Lozenberg were opened to the public on the 14th November 2022. on that day, the Belgian Building Research Institution (BBRI) was renamed to Buildwise. The building is a large complex with an atrium in the middle as its main open space for gathering events.
