The signature of a contract with the City of Paris on June 24 ratified the award of the Porte de la Chapelle Arena project, a sports facility in the new district that will be a key infrastructure for the games which will happen in 2024 in Paris, to the consortium led by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France in association with Bouygues Energies & Services, two subsidiaries of Bouygues Construction. The facility will include a large 8,000-seat sports hall which will host national and international competitions as soon as it opens, with Paris Basketball installed as the resident team, along with concerts, shows and conferences, two gymnasiums that will be used for community sports as well as serving as an amenity for local residents and an additional 2,600 square meter property development programme, providing a range of leisure activities and shops.

The design and construction budget for the Arena is EUR 98 million, to which are added EUR 20 million for the two gymnasiums and EUR 7 million for the additional property development programme. Bouygues Construction’s share for the design and construction of the whole project is EUR 110 million. Bouygues Energies & Services FM France will also provide 10 years of service and maintenance, in collaboration with Dalkia for management of the energy mix.

Designed by the architecture firms SCAU and NP2F, in collaboration with Franck Boutté Consultants for environmental and energy-related aspects, this facility of more than 26,000 square meter makes maximum use of recycled, biosourced and carbon-free materials. It will enable the development of elite sport in Paris and in particular will host badminton, para badminton and para taekwondo events during the games which will happen in 2024 in Paris.

As a catalyst in an urban regeneration programme that includes the Gare des Mines-Fillettes mixed development zone, the Arena will be an attractive and integrated addition, giving the district a new impetus by doubling as a focal point for the local population and a venue for major events.

The works, to be performed by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, will begin in summer 2020 and delivery is scheduled for July 2023. Bouygues Energies & Services will carry out the technical packages, with Mathis handling the timber structural elements of the project.
