Construction of 4 residential buildings; reinforced concrete structure, precast sandwich facades, all resting on a general slab. These buildings with an area of 800 m2 each have 5, 6, 7 and 8 floors respectively. Commercial spaces are also provided in 2 of the buildings.

The buildings, which include interior patios also being used as passageways, meet Minergie label criteria and have peripheral insulation in the precast facades but also around the patios and under the slab.

This project is located on a plot called La Chapelle - Les Sciers where there are going to be built eventually around 1,300 flats, shops, a school, a nursery and offices. Our company is also engaged on the second stage on this site.
