The Departmental Council 54 entrusted Eiffage Construction Lorraine with the demolition of the nursery of the Bel Air site and the reconstruction of the enclosed and covered lot of this social children’s home.
Designed by the architectural firm ABC Studio, the 2700 m² nursery will be demolished and rebuilt into 3 wings of buildings including a semi-buried one.
Multiple accesses are separated because of the site’s relief. The 3 building wings are clean volumes of white brick, limiting the openings on the street and promoting the opening on the gardens.
Named “Cocoon”, this calm and serene space will welcome fragile audiences such as children born under secrecy who will be directed towards adoption or placed in administrative and/or judicial capacity following problems family. These children from a few days to 6 years of age are supported by the Social Aid for Children.
The operation requires extensive asbestos removal before destruction.
With a complex phasing, this operation is also very technical due to the configurations of the premises and the protection of young children during the first phase of work.
Eiffage Construction teams will begin work on the site in May 2019 following asbestos removal. The planned delivery of the operation is expected during 2021.
