Project

Following to a European call for tender won by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, La Poste du Louvre will be entirely renovated by 2018.


Within the “1st arrondissement” of Paris, this highly oriented environmental program which begun in 2016, will take into account changes in uses, and respect the heritage and history of the French Post Office. The architect Dominique Perrault is in charge of the project. It aims at transforming this industrial spot into a mid-block site.

In this context of restructuring the Louvre post office, CAHORS provided two medium voltage delivery substations equipped with GRANY cells and 1000 kVA dry transformers.

This emblematic postal heritage building, formerly called "Hôtel des Postes", was designed by the architect Julien Guadet in the 19th century; It will host postal services 24 h/7 (post office, mail preparation and dispatch centre, Carré Pro and one urban logistics platform), services dedicated to neighbourhood activities (police station, childcare centre, co-working space ...) as well as commercial and tertiary activities (hotels, offices, shops with a wide range of opening hours), and social housings.
