Innovation Stations - Tour First, Paris

Innovation Stations - Tour First, Paris

16th January 2018

A while ago we published a fascinating article on the world’s tallest building to date following a trip to Dubai by one of our team members.  We found the article so interesting that we decided to look for some more tall or unusual buildings to entertain our readers.  Thus we now include a regular Innovation Station article on our blogroll for our readers to enjoy.  While most of us probably work on more mundane projects, it’s always fun (to say nothing of an educational experience) to take a look at some of the cutting edge projects around the world.  Today’s stop is at Tour First in the business district of Paris.

Tour First is an office skyscraper in Courbevoie in the business district of the Paris metropolitan area and was originally built in 1974 by Bougues, an industrial group headquartered in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.  The group specialises in construction, real estate development, media and telecommunications.  The Bougues group is currently involved in High Speed 2 (HS2), the new high speed railway in the UK which is planned to become the new backbone of the national rail network to link London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester.
