Revaison, a wood-built secondary school made off-site in less than a year!

Saint Priest / France

Constructed by: Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est
Project manager and project owner: Métropole de Lyon
Industrial partner: Ossabois

To construct the buildings of France’s second wood-built secondary school manufactured “off-site”, Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est joined forces with modular wood construction specialist Ossabois. The 100 wooden modules and the 4,300 m² of walls and floors in wood from managed forests were manufactured in workshops close to the city of Lyon, before being assembled on site. This innovative construction process presents a number of advantages, such as a 50% reduction in carbon emissions compared to concrete construction, a halving of production times, optimum working conditions in workshops and improved energy efficiency.

“The Collège Revaison project in Saint-Priest is an amazing opportunity for Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est to showcase the many advantages of modular wooden construction. For our customers, this method allows us to complete projects more quickly, with higher quality and environmental standards."
Julien Duret
project sales manager
