History
Located between the Cornavin train station and the buildings of the square, the underground project (3 levels, shopping centre and car park) has an area of 160 m x 68 m. The project was originally built by our office in the 1980s and it is quite natural that we were again appointed to work in particular on strengthening the roof slab structures.
