Five Divisions working on Line 14 South

Once extended to Saint-Denis - Pleyel and all the way to Orly airport, Line 14 will become an essential north-south axis for traffic in the capital and its three adjoining departments - Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, and Val-de-Marne. It is estimated that future traffic will hit 750,000 passengers a day (and up to a million including extension to Saint-Ouen Town Hall). At the end of 2020, Claire, the tunnel boring machine managed by Razel-Bec, completed its 4.3km drive between the Pont de Rungis stations and its exit structure, the Jean Prouvé shaft, before making way for the Group’s three Divisions – Civil Works, Energy Services, and Metal - to work on the stations, tunnel and ancillary works.

Semeru will equip L14 South for the RATP (i.e. Paris public transport authority)

This is a memorable victory for Semeru Transport, which, as part of a consortium with SPIE City Networks, has won the deal to deploy high- and low-voltage systems on the southward extension of Line 14 (€32 million). The services to be provided for all five future stations, twelve ancillary works, and the fourteen kilometres of extension tunnels include: interfaces with traction logic, video surveillance, access control, PA systems, networks, telephones / intercoms, toll and sales systems, anti-intrusion controls, easements and miscellaneous in-station equipment (heating - ventilation - air-conditioning, lifts and escalators, etc.). The current design phase will make way for three years of works at the end of 2021 and commissioning is scheduled for the 2024 Olympics. This is an exciting project for Semeru Transport, enabling it to bolster its visibility on Paris’s regional transport sector deals.

Two deals and five stations awarded to Razel-Bec and Fayat Metal

The first deal covers the construction of the superstructure and fitting out of three stations (M.I.N. Porte de Thiais, Chevilly Trois-Communes, and Kremlin-Bicêtre-Hôpital): fitting out four underground levels of each station with a floor area of 120 x 20 linear metres (masonry, heating, ventilation, hardware, glazing, tiling, painting) and construction of emerging superstructure and steel, glazed or wooden frameworks. Razel-Bec (lead contractor) awarded the design and construction of the steel structures of two of them to ACML and Viry. Porte de Thiais station (municipality of Chevilly-Larue) features two north and south buildings complete with a vertically-beaded glazed frontage, supported by a steel load-bearing structure. Chevilly Trois-Communes station features a distinctive parallelepipedal volume with a double-glazed external frontage supported by intermediate bars and is equipped with a 18-frame shed roof to let light in. These two worksites, handled simultaneously and on a short deadline (i.e. in time for the 2024Olympics), are required to meet particularly exacting technical standards. The second deal concerns the stations of Port de Rungis, near Orly airport, and Maison-Blanche Paris XIII, located in the south of Paris - covering the fitting out of the station buildings, entrances/exits and corridors, and 12 ancillary works. On this deal, Razel-Bec is continuing to collaborate with Fayat Metal, and more specifically its subsidiary Fayat Metal Major Projects, which will handle more than 350 tonnes of steelworks, over 1,000m2 of glazed frontage and canopies, and 5,000m2 of metal suspended ceilings.

FCAI in action as part of a dedicated multi-division team

It should also be underlined that the two L14 South deals won by our subsidiaries were worked on by the all-Fayat team focusing on the design work to fit out the Greater Paris stations, ably assisted by FCAI’s building finishing teams: two purchasers joined the team from the moment the deal was signed; they work hand in hand with the works teams to deal with all the architectural trades, including calls for tenders, negotiations and appointment of sub-contractors. This is a perfect opportunity to remind you that FCAI is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, a decade during which it successfully became a leading partner on worksites won by the Group, endeavouring to ensure competitive, high-synergy positioning.
