Société du Grand Paris has awarded a consortium of companies * bringing together several subsidiaries of VINCI Construction and VINCI Energies the first contract to design and build the Grand Paris Express. It covers the first section of line 15 West. This one, located in a very dense urban area, will connect the Pont de Sèvres station to La Défense (Hauts-de-Seine).
Representing an amount of 2.71 billion euros, 20% of which will be awarded to local SMEs, the contract covers the design and construction, all trades, of 14 km of tunnels, 5 stations (Saint-Cloud, Rueil -Suresnes Mont-Valérien, Nanterre La Boule, Nanterre La Folie and La Défense), a rear station at Nanterre La Folie and 16 service structures.
As an extension of the southern section of line 15, this first section of line 15 West will interconnect with lines L and U of the Transilien at Saint-Cloud and La Défense, with the RER E at Nanterre La Folie and with the lines A and E of the RER, line 1 of the metro, and line T2 of the Transilien tramway in La Défense. Its commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2031.
The project will employ more than 2,000 people at the peak of activity and 10% of the hours worked will be carried out in integration. Committed to the Société du Grand Paris in an ambitious approach to reducing its environmental footprint, the consortium will mainly use low-carbon and very low-carbon concrete.
In addition, VINCI will mobilize its Chantiers et Territoires Solidaires endowment fund, which supports community projects of general interest to promote access to employment and the creation of social ties in the municipalities crossed.
VINCI Construction and VINCI Energies companies are already involved in several parts of the Grand Paris Express, in particular on line 15 South between Pont de Sèvres and Noisy-Champs or line 18 between Orly and the university center of Saclay.
* The Intencités15 consortium is made up of both construction companies and architects: subsidiaries of VINCI Construction (VINCI Construction Grands Projets, agent / Chantiers Modernes Construction / Dodin Campenon Bernard / ETF), VINCI Energies (SDEL Infi), Razel -Bec, Fayat Energie Services, Ingerop, Artelia, JFS Architects, Grimshaw, AREP Architects, Archi 5 Prod and Philippe Gazeau Architect.
