The contract, worth 100 million euros, includes works to develop the station, covering a total area of 34,000 m² spread across nine levels – four of these below ground. Work will take 53 months, and will be finished in time for the 2024 Olympic Games. The station will serve the main Olympic venues.
Works comprise the main glass façades, the road and other networks, and the architectural and technical trades (finishing works; HVAC, smoke extraction and electrics).
The contract also includes four separate underground constructions 800 m apart, three service infrastructures dedicated to passenger safety, ventilation and smoke extraction of the tunnels (Ouvrage Cachin, Ouvrage des Etoiles and Ouvrage des Acrobates), and a system to reverse the direction of the trains (Ouvrage Finot).
The contract to develop the station is the result of the work carried out by the BESIX Engineering department throughout the tender process. This involved coming up with cutting-edge solutions to optimise the project in line with the client’s objectives.
