Our story

Why was Infranea founded?

In 2004 Infranea was founded by Johan Kuppens and Lut Van Os.

By that time, Johan was already busy with bettering the processes of the infrastructure for many years. In the Mid-80’s the first 3D-design software came on the market and Johan immediately played an essential part in it at the software company Infrasoft. Like no other, he understood what impact 3D-modelling would have on the very traditional way of the design- and building processes(long before the term disruptive technology got acknowledged). As founder and CEO of Infranea, his ambition was to collect 3D-experts so together they can use these tools and methods on leading infrastructure-projects with passion.

For Lut – as manager of HR and Operations at Infranea – the emphasis was on the company culture and the family feeling. The person behind the employee always came first for her. She created Infranea into a close-knit team that worked together respectfully. Not a single technological innovation was allowed to intervene with the team spirit.

After an extensive growth in numbers, Lut and Johan carried over “their Infranea” to the VK family. They stayed on board Infranea until the end of 2020 to carryover the torch to the new management. At VK Architects and Engineers, Johan will still be taking the role of Digital Director.
