To reinforce its innovation power and to speed up placing of new tyres on the market, the mulitnational company Michelin started this project of full modernisation of its world Research, Development and Innovation Centre. In this complex, where 3,300 people are working, a completly new and modern building will emerge in 2017.
Established in this location, near Clermont-Ferrand, for 45 years, this modernisation will provide research teams with optimum work conditions and a pleasant environment.
In a 80,000m² facility there will be:
- Conference rooms ;
- Meeting rooms ;
- Open plan and cellular offices ;
- And ancillary spaces.
The 300m long hall provides a circulation between the buildings and living spaces as restaurants and cafes.
