Altarea Cogedim wins the Grand Prix SIMI 2011 for the restructuring of the First tower

2 December 2011
Altarea Cogedim was awarded the Grand Prix SIMI 2011 in the “Renovated Building” category at the 10th edition of SIMI for their restructuring of the First tower in La Défense. This prize is our recompense for the renovation of this 5,000 m² office block located in France and completed between the 30th of September 2010 and the 1st of October 2011.

Constructed in 1974, the Axa Tower was designed by Pierre Dufau and was one of the tallest and most visible buildings in la Défense. Thirty years later the building needed to be completely restructured. Having been selected for the project by Axa Real Estate and Beacon Capital Partners, Altarea Cogedim oversaw the restructuring of the building: feasibility studies, scheduling, choosing the architects and project managers, support management and defining the environmental approach.

After 37 months of work the First Tower was signed off by Kohn Pederson Fox and SRA Architects and has become the new icon of the business district.
