The Paris region’s oldest shopping centre is growing. The glass canopy of the Vélizy 2 Shopping Centre (Yvelines) has been built by our teams at Viry, a member of the Fayat Metal division, in their workshops. This transparent, double-glazed “bubble” lets daylight in.
The new entrance is self-supporting, 18m high, 25m long and fashioned from glass and steel. The glass panel fastening system was developed and optimised using 3D printing. After two years of work, the shopping centre re-opened in March 2019.
