A brand new police station in the French town of Saint-Chamond (near Saint-Etienne), features a unique façade realised by France Résille and made of stainless steel provided by ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions.
Unique façade for the new police station
Following the building collapse in 2010, the town of Saint-Chamond inaugurated its new police station at the end of 2015. Designed by the architect Frédérik RILL, the building features a façade with a metallic mesh aspect. The façade was realised by France Résille and required 40 tonnes of polished stainless steel grain 220 (size 1500x3000x3), provided by Distribution Solutions in Clermont Ferrand, and around 200 hours of cutting.
