DESCRIPTION

The project consisted of the construction of a 60-bed seniors' residence of category B2 and an area of 3,000 m² on 5 floors.

The particularity of this project was its realization in winter conditions. The total construction period was between December 1 and July 1. The "total concept" construction system consisted only of precast concrete bearing panels, white colored concrete balconies, and its insulated precast concrete envelope that incorporated the brick.

Costs for winter conditions were limited and very low, since this system does not necessarily require heating during construction in cold weather.

Moreover, this building has been published in the INNO magazine for its innovation in the context of concrete constructions.
