The cafeteria in the K2 Building has an adjoining office. The 2 cafeterias are self-service; 3) the running of a modular executive dining room (lunches, dinners, receptions) located on the 6th floor of the K3 Building. This dining room can be divided and cater for a maximum of 3 lunches and 1 cocktail party simultaneously, i.e. 170 people (standing) to attend a cocktail party or buffet and 120 people for lunch or dinner.

The contract for lot 1 is a mixed contract under which the Court entrusts the contractor with managing various services as a concession ('concession part' for the services under 1, 2 and 4, point (iii)). The contract also lays down the conditions for specific contracts to provide catering services that can be allocated by the Court to the contractor, by means of purchase orders, for the duration of the contract ('framework service contract part', services under 3 and 4, points (i), (ii) and (iv)).
