Montpellier Polyclinic

"Sparkling like a ruby"

After 70 years in the historic centre of Montpellier, Polyclinique Saint-Roch relocated to a brand-new building in February 2016.

Two years elapsed between laying the foundation stone and completion. This extensive project is now operational after two years and it is described as the architectural billboard for the Montpellier metropolis.

Authors of the project:

  • Architects: Agence Blézat

  • Construction: Landragin

In addition to the specific colour, the leading aesthetic effect was achieved by the use of cassettes.

The Boréas ruby-red cassette has a wide range of possible applications and can be adapted to any building façade. This means there are few limitations on installation.

This prestigious project makes the best possible use of the steel product range.
Below you will find a summary of the products used for this project.
