Façade panel in fibre-reinforced concrete UHPC

Students’ hall of residenceParis porte de vanves

Architect: Jacques Ripault Architecture

The façade (1000 sq. m.) is clad with 175 cladding panels in white UHPC with a smooth texture, placed one on top of the other in different dimensions. Water-repellent protection has been applied to safeguard the appearance of the façade over time, in an urban setting with plenty of traffic.
The High Environmental Quality approach used has enabled the building to secure the Qualitel sustainable building mark. Good thermal performance of walls is achieved by an external wall insulation system: the protection offered by the UHPC cladding makes the whole more durable over time.
