As part of its modernisation/restructuring, CASH will free up over 2 hectares which will be redeveloped to open the hospital to its neighbourhood. Designed in close collaboration with the inhabitants of Nanterre, and forming a link with the Petit Nanterre sector, this site will combine neighbourhood solidarity, nature-related joint activities and places of meeting and sharing.
The historical building will be kept, restored, and surrounded by 29,000 sq.m. of housing space (259 evolving housing units of various kinds), shared housing (Cohab residence), a student residence (for students of the Institute for nursing training on the CASH site), a mobility residence, a participatory café and a bilingual Montessori school.
The programme is defined by its energy performance, its optimised management of rainwater and its low-carbon strategy. The materials taken from the demolished buildings will be reused on-site, and Zinc-air batteries - and EDF innovation - will store the energy produced by photovoltaic panels.
Icade will act as the leader of the consortium and will coordinate all stages of the project.
