France’s Vinci to build Trinity Tower
By Joe Malone21 December 2015
French-based Vinci will build the new 140m Trinity Tower in the heart of the La Défense business district, Paris.
The project will begin in 2016 and is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2018. The tower will be built by three Vinci subsidiaries − Bateg, GTM Bâtiment and Sogea TPI. Vinci Energies will also handle a number of technical work packages.
The tower has been designed by Paris-based architect Crochon Brullmann + Associés, and will offer 52,000m² of floor area over 32-storeys, including 3,000m² of new public and service areas.
The Trinity Tower will be made up of two offset blades and will have balconies and gardens on every level on its Eastern and Western facades to channel a maximum amount of fresh air into the building. It will also aim for the highest environmental certifications − HQE Passeport Bâtiment Durable Exceptional Level and BREEAM Excellent.
The Trinity tower will be completed in a record 33 months – 16 months for the esplanade and 17 months for the building, according to Vinci.
