The City of Paris has awarded a €125m contract to build the Porte de la Chapelle Arena to a consortium led by Bouygues BÃ¢timent Ile-de-France.
In the 2024 Summer Olympics it will host the badminton, para badminton and para taekwondo events, but otherwise it will be home to the Paris Basketball professional team.
The 26,000-sq-m stadium complex was designed by architecture firms SCAU and NP2F, in collaboration with Franck Boutté Consultants.
It includes an 8,000-seat stadium for sporting events, concerts and conferences.
There will also be two gymnasiums for community sports and 2,600 sq m of commercial space for leisure and retail.
Bouygues Construction’s share for the design and construction of the whole project is €110m.
Bouygues Energies & Services FM France will also provide 10 years of service and maintenance, in collaboration with Dalkia for management of the energy mix.â€¨â€¨In a press release, Bouygues said: "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.
"â€¨â€¨Work starts this summer 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.â€¨â€¨The consortium led by Bouygues BÃ¢timent Ile-de-France consists of:
