Eiffage wins the contract for the construction of the metal framework and the facade of Le Monde’s new headquarters in Paris for more than €43 million

Its facade will consist of a two-layered envelope. Goyer will build the first, watertight section, while Eiffage Métal will make the second, which is mainly decorative.

Through its Eiffage Métal (consortium leader), Eiffage Génie Civil and Goyer subsidiaries, Eiffage has been selected by the Le Monde press group to build the metal framework and the facade of its new headquarters of nearly 23,000 sq m. in Paris’ 13th district, in the Paris Rive-Gauche commercial development zone, for a total amount of €43 million overall.

This eight-storey bridge building will stand on two piles and be supported by a metal structure built partly in Lauterbourg (Alsace), in one of Eiffage Métal’s plants. Its facade will consist of a two-layered envelope. Goyer will build the first, watertight section, while Eiffage Métal will make the second, which is mainly decorative.

The project, developed by Redman on behalf of the Le Monde group, was designed by the architectural firms Snohetta (Norway) and Sra-Architectes (France) following an international tender. The building will stand on a slab reinforced by Eiffage Génie Civil, over the railway tracks near the Gare d’Austerlitz.
When work is complete in 2019, the building will house the publications of the Le Monde (Le Monde, Télérama, Courrier International, La Vie) and the Nouvel Observateur (L’Obs, Rue 89) groups.
