THE GRAND PALAIS, PARIS, FRANCE
The Grand Palais is a magnificent site in the heart of Paris. Built for the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1900, thanks to the most advanced construction techniques of the time, it is renowned worldwide for its magnificent nave and glass roof. More than 6,000 tonnes of steel were needed to build the nave. The Grand Palais, which had never previously benefited from a full restoration, is currently undergoing work and will reopen in 2024 to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games, where it will host the fencing and taekwondo events. Simplex Team will carry out the modernization and installation of two elevators, with capacity of 6t, 4 sops and 23m high.
