Les Groues

The future headquarters of VINCI, an emblematic program of the Groups

From mid-2021, nearly 4,000 VINCI employees will move to the archipelago, the Group's future headquarters.
All the business lines will thus be grouped together on the fringe of Les Groues, in order to encourage the development of synergies and multiple connections within the archipelago but also with the local ecosystem.

The two architects, Jean-Paul Viguier and Marc Mimram, have endeavoured to create an architectural ensemble that is both plural and homogeneous, reflecting the Group's DNA, to "make the city". In this way, the archipelago will express both VINCI's diversity and collective spirit, and will illustrate its openness to the city. A special feature - and added value - of the project lies in its mixed logic, since it combines a private building for tertiary use with a public transport facility (the RER E station).
This project also demonstrates the Group's strong ambition in terms of development, that of building the city on the city. The aim is to recreate urban intensity in this former railway wasteland in order to make the best use of land resources and limit urban sprawl.
Lastly, the archipelago will be a demonstration of the Group's know-how and innovations, setting an example in terms of quality of working life for its inhabitants and energy performance of buildings.
