Overview
Extension and transformation of a nursing home including in particular the construction of 2 buildings (ground floor + 4 and ground floor + 3) with an underground level (appr. 200 beds) as well as 2 footbridges and a tunnel linking the new buildings with the existing ones. The building called Charles Galland located on the area of the new buildings has been demolished.

completion in stages
During all the works, the nursing home remains fully operational and for this reason the buildings are completed in stages. Moreover, full access has to be guaranteed at all times.

Landscaping
The transformation of this site also requires the redevelopment of the traffic lanes, the car park zones and outside facilities.

Environment
Our office was also in charge of the asbestos diagnosis and monitoring of treatment works of the old nursing home building.
