NOX won the competitive bid of the “Banque de France refondation” project

The NOX group, in partnership with Ataub Architects, has won the tender for the transfer of all the buildings of the Banque de France, from the current site of Chamalières to Vic-le-Comte.

The “Banque de France” has a group of buildings covering 75,000 m², located in Chamalières (63), which accommodate printing businesses for bank notes, transporting cash, sorting and storage. Built in 1915, the site is no longer suited to the business.

It plans to transfer its business activities to a Vic-le-comte site (63)  its subsidiary  for printing is already located in Europafi. The aim of the business transfer is to create a state of the art business tool, grouping together printing and a French Trust company. Within the highly secured buildings, this new division will be based on the most productive industrial and logistic standards whilst also encouraging improved working conditions.
