The consortium led by Dodin Campenon Bernard (VINCI Construction) and including GTM Ouest and Botte Fondations, both subsidiaries of VINCI Construction France, as well as Spie Batignolles TPCI, Spie Fondations and Legendre Génie Civil, has been awarded the contract to execute the underground works (works package 1) for Line B of the Rennes metro in France. The contract, worth almost €320M, includes the construction of 8km of tunnel, 9 stations and 4 associated emergency shafts.
The TBM will start up at the end of 2014; delivery is scheduled for February 2018. Some 500 people will work on the site, including about 60% from the Rennes area, employed by the consortium’s local companies, suppliers and subcontractors or hired particularly through social integration programmes.
VINCI companies worked earlier on Line A of the Rennes metro and recently won the contract for the southern Red Line of the metro in Doha, Qatar.
