Foundations completed for Parisian apartments

Franki Fondation has completed foundations work for a major new residential development in Paris’ La Défense district despite the challenges of working close to an RER rail line.

The 18 storey building, which is being built by Bouygues, will house a new school and station, as well as apartments.

Franki used a newly acquired Liebherr LB 24 piling rig to install the 1,500mm diameter piles to 30m below ground level.
