Basketball, badminton and Taekwondo: Bouygues-led alliance to build stadium for 2024 Paris Olympics

The City of Paris has awarded a €125m contract to build the Porte de la Chapelle Arena to a consortium led by Bouygues Bâtiment 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.

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.


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.
