Engineering consulting mission for the demolition of Voltaire and Alembert Tower

Challenge

Because of the rehousing obligation of our promoter, the study had to take into account the deconstruction without caving with division of main structures to realise the building area in two work phases.

Facilities are still running next to the first work part.

This situation wasn’t planned in the initial budget fixed by our promoter.

Solution

Antea Group proposed a solution (mechanic demolition by blanking with a high mechanical shovel) that made many demolition compagnies proposing their services. For the project, that led to a technical feasability into two phases, allowing close facilities to keep on running.

Results

The project is what the client was looking for (technically and financially): the works are starting in 2011 for 22 months of works construction.
