The Cité Internationale Universitaire is expanding with the construction of the 9-floor, 200-unit Habib Bourguiba Pavilion apartment building (floor area: 5,100m²). This unique architectural feat is located very close to the Paris Périphérique ring road and Porte d’Orléans.
Viry installed the glass canopy covering the lobby and the designer dual-layer aluminium frontage, reminiscent of Arab-Muslim calligraphy and the tradition of the mashrabiya.
On site, the 5-month assembly operations followed a strict methodology and involved a 5-person team. The perforated sheet aluminium letters were manoeuvred into place using suspended scaffolds. They were then mechanically fixed to anchor points to form multi-panel modules before being joined together with crossbars.
An aerial inspection with the Viry drone was used to check the hard-to-reach sections, to the client’s great satisfaction. Students will move in from early March 2020..
