French aerospace company Dassault Aviation has selected Eiffage Construction to build a hangar and an accompanying silo car park, expanding its activity at the Mérignac factory in the country.

Dassault designs and builds military aircraft, business jets, and space systems. 

The new building will cover a total area of 26,500m² and is designed to optimise space utilisation with its V-shaped architecture. 

The design also aims to support the needs of Dassault’s Falcon and Rafale aircraft. 

The hangar will feature two production halls, each with the capacity to house five aircraft from the Falcon range.  

It will also include a central R+1 section for tertiary, logistics, and storage workspaces.

Adjacent to the hangar, the new S2 car park will be constructed to the north of the existing Silo n°1 car park.  

S2 is expected to offer 770 light vehicle parking spaces, with 154 spaces for electric vehicle charging.  

Additionally, there will be 34 motorcycle spaces and a dedicated bicycle storage area. 

The parking structure will feature photovoltaic panels on its shade structures, expected to generate approximately 250kWp of power.  

The facility is set to be delivered in the first quarter (Q1) of 2025.  

Dassault is overseeing project management while Patriarche is serving as the architect. 

Earlier this month, Eiffage, in partnership with Archigroup, secured a design-construction contract for the Digital Region Campus renovation project in France. 

Eiffage will serve as the general contractor while Archigroup will be the architect for the project.
