DEMOLITION COMPLETED!

Since this morning, the VERITAS building is down. They're now going to clear the site and then carry on with the next phase, prep/foundations & so on.

Looks like they're about to start piling! Good to see this is going ahead as planned.

Great to see this progress is going well and i especially like the exterior design of this tower ( referring to post 22 ) looks similar to The Gherkin as well Merci!

It's really impressive to see this way the side of the concrete slab above the motorway and metro.

That slab is something like 20 meters high which is really high. We even see the inside corridors in open air on the last picture.

It makes us realize the infrastructure mess which is La Défense. As a matter of fact, On top right of the first picture I quoted, we can see the Aurore tower (with the orange windows and the air con at some of them). If I recall correctly, it should be torn down soon to build another building.

Actually Talisker, the piling work visible in the pics concern the construction of this platform:
http://www.defense-92.fr/photos/cinematique.gif

It will be completed next June & will be used to store plenty of materials/machines dedicated to the constructions of D2 & AIR2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clery, regarding Aurore, its demolition was confirmed yesterday by Philippe Chaix :

Quote:
Les travaux de déconstruction de la tour Aurore pour laisser place à la tour Aire 2, commenceront début 2012, commente Philippe Chaix en expliquant que les travaux de destruction d'Aurore prendront environ seize mois. La tour sera déconstruite étage par étage. Le chantier de Aire 2 pourra ainsi débuter en 2013. Le permis de construire de la tour Aire 2 fait pour l'heure l'objet de deux recours : un de SOGECAP (le constructeur de la tour D2) et l'autre de la tour Manhattan.
To sum up, the demolition will start early 2012, floor by floor, & will last 16 months. The AIR2's construction is expected from 2013.

Back to D2 now .
