Cemex helps re-build Paris, France

Cemex is supplying materials, as well as technical and logistical expertise to the Grand Paris, the largest infrastructure project currently under development in France.

One of Cemex’s main contributions was for foundations and civil engineering of a section of the Grand Paris Express: over 55,000m³ of specially formulated concrete to build the cast walls, technical and slab floors for the extension of lines 4 and 15 of the Paris underground.

Cemex also participated in several phases of the Zac Clichy Batignolles Development Area, a project that will reconfigure 54 hectares of inner Paris.

For two of the first stages of this project, Cemex provided beams and construction techniques for 30,000m² of area under construction, using just-in-time concrete pouring to ensure uninterrupted pumping inside a heavy-traffic, built-up area.

Cemex has also provided logistical support for the Grand Paris through its port operations. Cemex’s ships are handling much of the logistics associated with removing excavated soil from the construction areas, and Cemex’s ports will transport more than 300,000tonnes of soil and contaminated landfill, relieving an already traffic-congested area.

“We are proud to participate in monumental projects like the Grand Paris, which will not only reshape the iconic city of Paris, but also improve the quality of life for its inhabitants,” says Michel André, Director of Cemex France.

“Our participation in several stages of such a large-scale project demonstrates the technical, logistical, and professional capabilities of Cemex.”
