Since June 2018, GA Entreprise has been involved in the renovation of an 1860 Haussmann building that will house Givenchy's new 6,000 m2 head office.
How do we adapt to these constraints?
C.M. : We had to put in place a draconian logistics plan. Make a delivery schedule with a single entrance and a single exit, manage a daily cleaning of the road, communicate well with the neighbours every week… There are many constraints on this type of work site, and it takes time. The construction site schedules had to be adapted. Meetings with the ABFs were held every three or four months to check compliance with urban planning rules.
Why did you choose agap2 to support you on this project?
C.M. : GA had already worked with agap2 on the Europe Tower at La Défense. We needed an additional resource on this project, and I found at agap2 a technical, reactive contact person, close to the site and who was able to offer me a relevant profile. Amine was supposed to stay 5 months on this project, he finally stayed for a year. And I plan to have him work on another site of the group.
After having done several projects at Vinci Construction in new housing, Amine, an agapian since the end of October 2017, is working as a works manager on this heavy rehabilitation project.
Depending on the progress of the work, I had several missions. I started by preparing and studying the architectural trades (analysis of the various execution plans, subcontractors’ meetings, project management…) I also took care, at the beginning of the construction site, of the presentation of the first series (office, sanitary…) and the validation of the different materials.
In the piloting phase, my mission was to manage and monitor the work of all trades (structural, architectural, technical and covered enclosure) from the 1st to the 4th floor. The building has been received, I am still on the process to process the lifting of reserves until the end of December and coordination between our subcontractors and Givenchy companies.
