Harsco Infrastructure provided access solutions for the construction of the new Jean Nouvel-designed La Philharmonie de Paris music venue.

Harsco Infrastructure has supplied shoring, support and access equipment for the construction of the new Jean Nouvel-designed La Philharmonie de Paris music venue.

Harsco’s Project Services team in France carried out shoring works, supported the creation of the slab work and heavy lifting operations, and delivered associated technical studies for the €218 million project. Harsco also had its own engineering personnel on site for the duration of the construction work.

Harsco equipment brought in for the project included aluminium tower access systems, TENOR working platforms, and HP 21 heavy-duty props.

Harsco’s technical and construction teams worked closely with Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, which is leading the consortium responsible for the project.

When it opens in September 2014, the venue will be the largest auditorium in France dedicated to classical, jazz and world music. The 2400 capacity hall will feature a unique vessel-shaped design, constructed from a double shell of concrete and plaster that will provide outstanding acoustics inside the building.
