The CNCS in Moulins, major French tangible heritage conservation facility for theatrical costumes, has expanded.  The CNCS was inaugurated in the Quartier Villars in 2006 and moved into its newly renovated left wing in autumn 2022. All the electrical work (HV, LV and fire protection system) was carried out by our Terceo experts in the Allier region. 

The rehabilitation of a former stable located in the Quartier Villarsleft wing has enabled the CNCS to develop its costume conservation activities and offer the public new exhibition spaces. This wing was built in 1848, then abandoned by the "military delegation". It offers the CNCS an additional 2,000 m2, now used for stage design exhibitions.  
 

"The Quartier Villars is a former 18th century cavalry barracks and a listed building. Our team's work consisted of cable routing and electrical distribution for the rehabilitated wing from the principal LV switchboard installed in the main building. We also installed indoor and outdoor lighting, telephone and Voice-Data-Imaging networks, an anti-intrusion system, video surveillance, access control and security lighting for this listed site," said Allier sector business manager Fabien Harrault 
 

The CNCS is a genuine "dressing room" of outstanding quality, where over 20,000 theatre, opera and ballet costumes are conserved, and also painted sets belonging to the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Comédie Française and the Paris National Opera. The development of these collections represents a major challenge, successfully met by the CNCS, with the help of our local specialists!
