Vinci begins construction on mixed-use project in Paris

WCN Editorial Team 25 Apr 2018 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Vinci Construction France has begun construction on the Origine complex in Nanterre, Paris, on behalf of customer ICADE, a real estate investment company.

The project is located at the heart of the Quartier des Terrasses, opposite the future Quartier des Groues.

Vinci Construction France will execute the works and Vinci Energies will be in charge of the implementation of environmental certificates and labels for the office component.
The project will be completed in 2020.

Under the new contract, three buildings will be constructed, which will be designed as a window onto the city by Maud Caubet Architectes and Quadrifiore Architecture.

The Origine complex is located near the U Arena and new Nanterre-La Folie station (Line E of the RER regional express system and Line 15 of the Grand Paris Express system).

The complex is expected to contribute to the development of Nanterre’s Quartier des Terrasses and Quartier des Groues, which will become the links between the city and the La Défense business district.

The first two buildings will have nine storeys each and a total surface area of 70,000m² of office space and will be connected via three underground levels, including two parking levels.

The ground floor will feature a restaurant, which will be shared by all companies, as well as an auditorium, gym and other facilities.

Cantilevered storeys above the entrance will be supported by a part that is also suspended.

A 220-tonne metal load-bearing frame will be installed, which will make the architectural and technical challenge possible.

Eight storeys of the concrete-wood structure can be seen from the interior garden. The office complex will feature loggias, which will make it very light and open to the exterior.

The third building, with 10 storeys and a surface area of 10,000m², will consist of 145 housing units, a crèche and retail outlets.

Vinci Construction France and Vinci Energies teams will execute the Origine project in full BIM (building information modelling), which will give the participants access to all site information in real time.

Origine aims to achieve high environmental performance combining four certifications (HQE 2016 with an Excellent rating; BREEAM with an Excellent rating; LEED with a Gold rating; and WELL with a Silver rating)for the first time in France, as well as two quality labels (Biodiversity and E+C-), also a first in France.

As part of the project, 2,800 solar panels will be installed for lighting and geothermal boreholes for heating.
