The Tour Triangle construction in Paris has just started
The Tour Triangle will include office space, a conference centre, but also a health centre, a cultural centre, a crèche, a hotel and a restaurant.
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) has awarded BESIX the construction of the Tour Triangle in Paris, designed by the architects Herzog & De Meuron, winners of the prestigious Pritzker Prize.
The 180-metre high Tour Triangle has been designed to comply with the BREEAM Excellent (minimum) and HQE Exceptional environmental certifications, as well as the Effinergie label.
The solutions implemented include geothermal systems, a district heating network and energy and heat recovery systems, as well as a bioclimatic facade and 1,000sqm of photovoltaic panels.
The Tour Triangle will include office space, a conference centre, but also a health centre, a cultural centre, a crèche, a hotel and a restaurant. The building's carbon footprint will be controlled, in particular through the use of low-carbon materials, including a minimum of 50% concrete with reduced CO2 emissions, and recycled materials, in particular for the aluminium facades. The tower site will also offer 100,000 hours of social integration in partnership with EPEC, the Ensemble Paris Emploi Compétences association.
The planning, logistics and construction methods have been developed by BESIX Engineering, the in-house design office of BESIX, in order to optimally reduce the impact on local mobility, the neighbourhood and the operation of the Parc des Expositions. BESIX Engineering will also carry out the execution studies for the structure and will provide support for those dedicated to the façade.
