The Occitanie region has entrusted Eiffage Construction, a representative of the group comprising SPIE mission, Ghezzi Menuiserie, Caizergues and Pertuis froid, with the construction of an 11,300 m² internship in the heart of Uzes.
This establishment will create a link between the two technical schools Gide and Guynemer in order to strengthen their national and international influence.
Extended on 3 levels, it will consist of 288 beds, a gym, a medico-social pole and a school restaurant that can accommodate 850 rationnaires common to the two schools.
