Eiffage Construction completes work on the impressive energy renovation of the Cité Perrache in Lyon

Construction Division

Begun in 2015, the renovation work on the 265 housing units of the Cité Perrache in Lyon has just been completed. Designed by SCP Marin, the architectural firm of the grandsons of the original architect of the Cité in 1930, the buildings can once again accommodate their tenants, after an operation carried out "in drawers".

Carried out for Grand Lyon Habitat, this major rehabilitation project for all trades consists of the complete interior renovation of all the housing and common areas, as well as the energy renovation of the eight buildings, including the renovation of the façades, waterproofing and exterior joinery. These works enable the nearly 25,000sqm operation to meet the requirements of the Effinergie rénovation label (BBC Effinergie rénovation equivalent for pre-1948 buildings).
These buildings, initially designed by Mr Marin in 1930, were imagined by 2 of his grandsons, Jean-François Marin and Pierre Marin. A family history for this emblematic city of Lyon, whose exterior architecture is notable for the symmetry of its façades, H-shaped modules and the rounded corners of its balconies.
An industrial district at the time of the initial project in the 1920s-30s, the Cité Perrache is today undergoing architectural and urban change and is part of the Confluence global project, which encourages mixed use through the installation of buildings comprising housing, offices and shops and the installation of administrative and corporate headquarters.
Congratulations to our teams for the delivery of this outstanding operation and thanks to our partners: SCD ingénieurs and Matté (BET structures and fluids), Soubeyran.
