EPA Euratlantique has chosen the consortium constituted of Eiffage, Woodeum, 3F, Clairsienne and the architectural firm Jean-Paul Viguier & Associés, to build a CLT residential tower in solid wood, in the heart of Bordeaux, close to Gare Saint-Jean and the future high-speed train station.


The 57 m residential high tower is braced by a reinforced concrete core, and is composed of CLT floors, glued laminated timber perimeter beams, a wood-framed wall façade, and prefabricated, crane-laid metal balconies. The wood used for the entire project is a local softwood, Douglas fir, required by the client Eiffage Immobilier.





Eiffage Construction has entrusted setec tpi with the execution studies (calculations and drawings) for the structure (concrete, steel, wood and foundations). setec tpi produced a BIM model using Revit for the concrete, and Tekla for the wood and steel structure, from which the manufacturing drawings were produced.


In addition, setec tpi is a member of ADIVbois and manages the structures workshop within the Technical Commission.
