INASUS CONSOLIDATES IN FRENCH MARKET WITH TRIGONE PROJECT
Inasus has already started a new job outside the Spanish borders: the construction of a new project in France, the Trigone building facade in Paris. Designed by the French architect Christian de Portzamparc, whose architecture studio carried out, among others, the unique Dior Flagship Store in Seoul, the Cidade das Artes in Rio de Janeiro, the Prism Tower in New York, the Tour Granite in Paris, or the Philharmonie in Luxembourg. The project is in the engineering phase. Works are scheduled to start in February 2017 and finish in December 2017. However, the structural elements manufacture will begin in December 2016 at Inasus facilities in Lalín (Spain). This is the fourth project that Inasus has developed in the French market, which consolidates Inasus as a leading company in France’s unique facades.
The contract has been awarded to the Galician company by Bouygues, one of the most influential groups in the construction sector worldwide. Inasus already worked with Bouygues executing the facades of the Municipal Services Building in Bordeaux (France), as well as other projects in Switzerland (Sagrave Building in Lausanne) through its Swiss-based subsidiary Losinger Marazzi. This shows the trust placed in the Galician facade constructor by the French construction company after these projects’ success.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY AT THE SERVICE OF DESIGN
The 11,700 square metres of the building’s facades will be covered by a decorative double skin formed by laminated glass designed by Inasus professionals. This double skin will be tested in a demanding ATEX test at the prestigious French laboratory CSTB before its installation.
Once the team at Inasus has designed the facade and manufactured the structural elements at the company’s facilities in Lalín, a group of professionals will travel to Paris to perform assembly, logistics, quality, or occupational risk prevention tasks. Inasus thus remains committed to internationalisation, which has led the company to open a new technical-commercial office in Madrid, in addition to those in Lalín and London.
