When Egis combines global expertise and local presence.
A pool of experts, in France and Cameroon
Egis mobilised many of the Group's experts and specialists at different stages of the project: acoustics, BIM, specific sports-related regulations, steel structure, etc.
To supervise the work, our teams in France worked closely with Egis' local teams, who have been well established in Cameroon for many years. In addition, we made several visits to Italy to check that the prefabricated elements matched the contractor drawings.
Support from digital
By using a collaborative EDM platform (Electronic Document Management), in coordination with the design-and-build contractor, our teams met the deadlines for analysing the deliverables and significantly reduced the time needed to transfer the various documents (plans, product sheets, working methods, etc.).
The EDM solution also enabled all the project's players to work according to the same method, share information more easily, strengthened project supervision and ensured the systematic verification of information through continuous quality controls.
A project bearing the dual hallmark of innovation and sustainability
This project deployed a range of innovative solutions and processes, which proved all the more exceptional given the local context: a construction method using prefabricated parts, creation of high columns using climbing formwork, installation of a metal framework with a compression ring and tension cables, centralised air conditioning using a water loop, etc.
In addition, each of our technical choices was guided by a strong sustainability focus.
In terms of on-site Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) aspects, our experts used a set of dashboards to assess the Piccini group’s risk mitigation measures.
In addition to the environmental and social impact study carried out before the project began, our initiatives included erecting fences to reduce the risk of the complex’s building site causing disturbance to the surrounding neighbourhood, strictly controlling the waste generated by the site and taking measures to prevent air, water and soil pollution.
We also controlled the site's energy demand by promoting the use of energy-efficient equipment (light bulbs, air conditioners, freezers, printers, etc.), optimised the artificial lighting in the stadium's halls and rooms to reduce electricity consumption, while also taking into account the hygrothermal and acoustic comfort conditions necessary for this type of building.
Finally, green spaces were created within the sports complex grounds to create cool islands and enhance the venue.
