The laying of the first stone of the Collège de Chaumes-en-Retz marks the start of a site that is part of a virtuous global design in step with the values of the AIA Life Designers group.
Strong points: using low-carbon materials bio-sourced insulation made of hemp, flax and cotton.
Outside planting, especially in the recreation areas which will be far more than sports fields.
A significant place is given over to soft mobilities (developed cycle access and premises).
The six hundred pupils will start at their new school in September 2024 after the summer holidays.
