The first tree of the rehabilitation of the building 6 rue Vandrezanne in the 13th arrondissement of Paris was symbolically laid on January 22. Overlooking the shopping centre Italy 2, the building is being transformed from offices into a higher education institution to host the future Paris campus of NEOMA Business School.
Last March, Eiffage Immobilier sold this building in R+5, formerly owned by the Mutuelle Générale, to the business school NEOMA Business School, an innovative challenger of the largest international business schools.
The heavy rehabilitation work, led by Eiffage Construction, began at the end of March 2019. It includes:
- cleaning and removing asbestos from the building,
- replacement of all exterior joinery,
- the refurbishment of the sealing complex and the renovation of the facade,
- the creation of additional elevators and stairs
- the renewal of all technical equipment in the building: HVAC, smoke control, electricity, elevators, etc.
This rehabilitation will increase the energy performance of the building in order to aim the certification HQE sustainable building.
Designed by the consortium of architectural firms Philippe Meurice Architecture and DEGW, the venue is forward-looking to adapt to future teaching methods: co-working spaces, flexible classrooms, creative spaces etc.
Nearly 1,500 students will be able to discover this new 7,000 m² campus in 2021.
