ENGIE Solutions x Rennes Métropole
Transform a historical convent into a 21st-century conference centre
Rennes’ most ambitious heritage project in 20 years
ENGIE Solutions supported the architects with this ambitious project. That meant combining the building's historical heritage with decidedly modern components in order to give it a new cultural dimension. For a project such as this one, the quality of the artificial lighting used is crucially important. In total, around a hundred or so different products were used, with around 5000 lighting units being installed, many of which are architectural components. And since accommodating the general public is the building's main purpose, low voltages were essential. Particular attention had to be paid to the fire safety system, the sound systems in the committee rooms and auditoriums and the building’s centralised technical management system. ENGIE Solutions tasked dedicated teams of specialists with each of these systems, with stunning results.
