Get fast access to car rental thanks to our steel

A new car park dedicated to car rental services in the city of Lyon (France), is going to make a difference in the lives of users and in the traffic of the neighbourhood. It was built with steel produced by our Construction and Long Products business units, under the coordination of the Steligence® team. This project is another result of the successful long-term partnership between ArcelorMittal and the company GAGNEPARK.

Fully dedicated to car rental services

Located on the Pompidou avenue, close to the Lyon Part-Dieu railway station, this new car park - owned by EFFIA and designed by AREP - gathers all car rental services in one unique dedicated site. It includes 721 parking spaces on 7 floors, equipment for preparation and maintenance, as well as the offices of the car rental agencies. This project will contribute to reduce the traffic flow of the district, while improving the level of service. 

Prefabrication for easy, fast and sustainable construction

The car park is a steel-concrete composite structure with a steel structure and concrete floors poured on steel floor decking.

Steligence® was the main coordinator of the project and provided to the customer the best-in-class products from different business units of ArcelorMittal:

  • 400 tonnes of 15-metre joists and beams, from ArcelorMittal Steligence® Fabrication Centre
  • 15,000 m² of Cofraplus® 60 composite floor decking from ArcelorMittal Construction as well as additional 1,200 m² steel tray for the roof including cold rolled profiles produced by Profil du Futur to build structure of the top floor

The particularity of this project was the very reduced construction space, as the car park is located between the railway station, office buildings and rail tracks on the North and on the South. However, the use of prefabricated elements facilitated the construction and shortened the construction planning. It was also a strong advantage sustainability-wise, as the prefabricated steel structures had a lesser impact on the city traffic.

Moreover, the long products supplied for the structure of the car park are made from 100% recycled steel. The galvanised beams are also fire-resistant (in case of fire of several vehicles) and this without any of the usual protections (flocking or intumescent paint).

A successful partnership

ArcelorMittal’s collaboration with GAGNEPARK started in 2007 and it is based on long-term vision, trust and efficiency in terms of deadlines and quality. Partners for more than 10 years, we are happy to work with GAGNEPARK for the construction of ever more efficient car parks.
