BESIX: building a new private hospital in the Paris region

27 November 2018

Construction of a private hospital in the Paris region that is already seen, through the three institutions that compose it, as one of the best in France.

BESIX France [BESIX] is to build the new private hospital serving the Ambroise Paré, Pierre Cherest and Hartmann medical and surgery centres (CMC) in the Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine. The private hospital will be the largest hospital complex in Neuilly-sur-Seine. The project reflects the desire of the Ambroise Paré, Pierre Cherest & Hartmann private hospitals group to combine the three institutions' hospital services on one site.

Andres Penaloza, Director, BESIX France: "We are very proud to participate in the construction of a private hospital that is already seen, through the three institutions that compose it, as one of the best in France. The signing of this contract is the result of intense technical and economic development work in close partnership with our client, its delegated contracting authority and its design and engineering team. Our teams made the difference by their ability to listen and make valuable proposals."
René Jordens, Commercial Director, adds: "With the Proton Therapy Centre of the Institut Curie in Orsay, the public hospital and private health care institute that now form the Melun health centre, and this new private hospital project in Neuilly, BESIX is continuing to expand in France’s hospital construction sector."

The Neuilly-sur-Seine construction site involves two new buildings totalling 28,000 m², with ground and five upper floors, and 2 basement levels with 451 parking spaces. The facility will provide 387 beds and outpatient armchairs, 34 operating theatres and 7 radiology rooms. It will also cover a broad spectrum of medical and surgical specialties.

The project's geographical location in the municipalities of Neuilly-sur-Seine and Levallois-Perret will require BESIX to organize its building methods and site supply system to reflect the constraints of a very residential environment.

The contract was signed by BESIX and Immobilière Paré-Cherest SARL on 18 October 2018. Work will last 3 years.

Iconic projects in France include, in addition to the Melun Health Center, the Dexia (CBX) and Carpe Diem towers in the La Défense district of Paris, the new EDF Research and Development Center at Paris-Saclay, as well as Structural work at Terminal 2E of Charles De Gaulle Airport.

Outside Europe, BESIX owes its reputation to, among others, its construction of Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower, the Grand Egyptian Museum on the Giza Pyramid Plateau, and the Al Wakrah Stadium, built to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
