• Developing a major hub in Paris's new metro system
• A €82 million contract
Société du Grand Paris has awarded the contract to upgrade the future Noisy-Champs station and ancillary facilities to VINCI Construction via its subsidiaries Chantiers Modernes Construction (lead) and CBI.
This landmark in the Grand Paris Express will be the station connecting future Line 15 South and Line 16 with RER Line A. Straddling Noisy-le-Grand (in Seine-Saint-Denis) and Champs-sur-Marne (in Seine-et- Marne), it will will feature two monumental timber helixes, one emerging from each city, converging into a spiral at the top.
The works will amount to €82 million, begin in June 2022. They involve comprehensive development of the part of Noisy-Champs station serving the future lines 15 South and 16 (structure, masonry, technical and architectural trades, roads, utilities and landscaping).
This project, employing up to 200 people, follows on from the civil engineering works carried out for construction of the station and forward station, which were entrusted to a consortium led by VINCI Construction in 2017.
5% of the hours worked will be allocated to workers on social integration programmes. VINCI will also involve its endowment fund, Chantiers & Territoires Solidaires, which supports non-profits working on public-interest projects revolving around employment and social ties in the areas around Grand Paris Express construction projects.
Furthermore, VINCI is active on several other Grand Paris Express works packages, where it is also combining and synergising its subsidiaries' expertise in underground projects, urban development, rail works, information technologies, data science and electrical engineering.
