Elevators installation, 2020-in progress

In 2020 we have started a new project in another iconic building in Paris. Famous architect Jean Nouvel designed innovative twin-towers in the Bruneseau-Masséna district of Paris. Simplex is installing 15 elevators from 10 to 18 floors with a capacity of 1000 to 1600 kilograms and speed from 4 m/s to 6 m/s. The project is located in the Paris Rive Gauche development zone in the 13th arrondissement, consists of two high-rise blocks for office, retail and hotel use. DUO 1 will be 180 meters high and have 39 floors, and DUO 2 will be 122 meters with 29 floors with 9 underground levels intended for technical facilities and car parking areas.
