FAUBOURG IMMOBILIER, a developer of residential properties and SEQUABAT, the designer-builder, both part of the IDEC GROUP worked together to deliver ahead of schedule a housing programme and student accommodation in the Val de Marne.
In Villiers-sur-Marne, Villa Foch, a residence with elegant architectural lines
In the framework of the renovation of the town centre, the Town Council in Villiers-sur-Marne has been committed for many years to ensuring that new buildings fit in with the historic centre of the town. Heavily involved, they were reassured at each stage of the project working in close collaboration with the teams at FAUBOURG IMMOBILIER and the GP Architects.
This programme includes 29 single to 4-room room flats spread over three floors with a basement with the special feature of a motorised car park. The basic architectural style reflects that of the Ile-de-France in the 19th Century using high quality materials, such as millstones or tiled and zinc roofs. This standard of work means that there is the illusion that the building has always existed in this commune giving the impression that an old building has been renovated rather than being built from scratch.
The Villa Foch residence was built by SEQUABAT, another subsidiary of the IDEC Group, and was handed over to its new owners two months ahead of schedule.
Bernard, one of the investors and one of FAUBOURG IMMOBILIER’s clients tells us what he thinks: “I wanted to invest in property and take advantage of tax advantages… what surprises me is that not a square metre has been wasted with all the space easy to develop, promising a happy future for the tenants. I signed up for a 42 square metre home that fits in with the advantages of the Pinel arrangements. I then was able to see the construction and fitting out of the property in the pre-handover phase on 20th February 2017, almost two months ahead of schedule. That was good, as the pipe surroundings hiding the pipes around the gas boiler were missing. Apart from that everything was perfect. A very successful build. The only criticisms concerned a bit of paintwork around the pipes. We should add that they were very professional, and the two people in charge of the handover were always willing to listen. I got the keys on 20th March 2017, and on 21st a keen and delighted tenant took possession of the premises. What more could you ask for?”
In Nogent-sur-Marne, student accommodation for sandwich course trainees
INFA, a body that deals with professional training and adult education, wanted to make it easier for its students to find accommodation by building a student residence right alongside their training centre in Nogent-sur-Marne.
Before work began, FAUBOURG IMMOBILIER helped INFA find the public and private funding, as well as a partner to look after the students’ accommodation. Working with the COALLIA rental management firm, Faubourg Immobilier came up with a top quality programme with 160 furnished rooms with fitted kitchens and bathroom with toilet. Well suited to the requirements and lifestyle of students, the residence also offers a common room fitted out with coffee tables and armchairs, a sports room and a multi-functional room.
The building project was handed over to SEQUABAT, another subsidiary of the IDEC Group, which meant that COALLIA was able to hand over the project three months ahead of schedule on Tuesday 18th April 2017. We should add that the building project was run using a Regional Employment contract for 6% of the man hours to help the short term and long term unemployed and the building is currently being certified for its environmental qualities with the label “Habitat & Environnement & Qualitel”.
