Handover of the Saint-Gobain tower
3 January 2020 - Events - France
On 10 December, Adim Paris Île-de-France and Bateg (both VINCI Construction France) handed over the Saint-Gobain tower in La Défense, by Paris.
Designed by architects Valode & Pistre for Generali Real Estate, the 165 metre-tall tower provides a total of 49,000 m² of usable floor space over 44 levels, plus 1,100 m² of totally accessible balconies and terraces. It will accommodate 2,200 workspaces, 300 m² of showroom space accessible to the public and 380 m² of retail space on the ground floor.
Comprised of three rhombohedrons, this high-rise building is characterised by the prism erected at its summit, accommodating the meeting, communication and function areas, and a hanging garden extending down over more than eight levels.
The digital model was integrated as of the structure’s design stage in order to meet this technical challenge within a particularly densely-built environment.
The Saint-Gobain tower aims to gain the following environmental certification: LEED, BREEAM and NF HQE associated with EFFINERGIE+ certification.
