 Project management mission for the renovation of the Palais des Congrès du Grand Large with preliminary audit, drafting of specifications and implementation.

The operation includes:

- renovation of the reception areas,

- compliance, security and disable access standard of the establishment,

- the increase of the capacity of the great hall from 700 to 1100 seats,

- adaptation of natural acoustics for concert use,

- the layout of the technical and functional premises related to the intervention,

- the complete repair of all fluid and aeraulic networks.

The architectural part brought a significant increase in volume, the creation of side boxes and the addition of a third balcony. A large use of LED lighting allows general control under DMX protocol. 

The project was carried out according to a limited and site-based operating schedule over a period of 8 months. The hall is now recognized for its exceptional acoustic qualities.
