After around 12 months of construction work, the shell of the new EMS in the Orée district of Crissier is nearing completion. Recycled concrete accounted for over 50% of the total volume of concrete used, mainly for the foundations, invert and walls.

To make possible the heterogeneous spaces between the different floors envisaged by the architect, load-bearing walls were used to transmit forces from one floor to another.

Another special feature of this building was the use of 18 m-long prestressed struts. They support two storeys and the green roof, freeing up the first floor for communal areas.
