Project feedback: roof covering over the Rennes, France train station
An unusual structure, covering an area of 5,000 m² and 150 m in length, was installed by Arnholdt Echafaudages (part of Altrad Services France) in 2018, to make the Rennes railway station site watertight. A successful challenge thanks to the respect of three watchwords:
- Listening: being attentive to the clients, SNCF and AREP, to determine the exact needs, constraints and issues of this temporary structure.
- Speed: the estimate was drawn up on 1 June and work began on 15 June, and the first third of the structure was handed over on 15 July, with works finishing on 15 August. This is an exceptional timeline given the scale of the work!
- Adaptability: carried out at night, the assembly of the umbrella required constant adaptation to the context of the use of the site and the environment, in terms of the location, the working areas and times and the systems for stabilising the umbrella. As the installation progressed, the team demonstrated a flawless agility agility.
