The Van Laere group joined CFE in December 2017. This combination strengthens the position of CFE on the Belgian construction market and already proves fruitful in terms of new complementarities and opportunities for all the entities of the Contracting division.

Based in Zwijndrecht, the Van Laere group enjoys an excellent reputation on the Belgian construction market. Its history began in 1938, and over the years its activities have developed and became divided over three companies:
- Algemene Aannemingen Van Laere NV which constructs buildings as well as civil engineering projects in the public and private sectors; the firm operates primarily in Flanders and in Brussels, and sometimes also in the north of France and in the Netherlands.

- Groupe Thiran SA which puts up buildings mainly in the public sector and in the Walloon and Brussels regions of Belgium.

- Arthur Vandendorpe NV, which specializes in the restoration of buildings and is active in East and West Flanders, as well as in Antwerp and Brussels.
