9 November 2021, CET (UTC+1)

Organized by the CTBUH France Chapter



Event Overview

CTBUH France is pleased to offer delegates an extraordinary opportunity to engage in an exchange on three major concepts: ecodistricts, urban mass timber, and refurbishing existing high-rises. The day will begin with discussion and facility tours at the Docks de Saint-Ouen sur Seine district, a revitalized industrial zone that is now an essential part of Greater Paris. The focus will then shift to timber construction within the Quartier Bruneseau. This will include a discussion of a 180-meter wood tower under permit and a visit to the completed Opalia building, an eight-story timber building utilizing concrete and steel. Finally, the discussion will center on the refurbishment of some of the tallest buildings in France, as well as the reality of repurposing existing structures. The day’s events will cap off with a cocktail and a networking reception enjoying the panoramic vistas from the 24th floor of the Tour Zamansky in the center of the Jussieu Campus.

Sessions will be video recorded and feature international speakers, including presenters from the United Kingdom, to foster a broader, international perspective on these important issues.
