On the same Saint Perdon site, in the heart of the Landes forest in Gascogne, discover the facilities of the Scieries Lesbats d’Aquitaine (sawmill and solid, finger-jointed wood production unit). Close to its supply sites, the mill encourages a short supply chain, for cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. After the visit, you will gather for a lunch in the village of Arjuzanx, to discover its natural protected habitat and 2 buildings made from locally sourced wood. After lunch, you will stop by the Thébault facility, France’s first plywood manufacturer producing 80,000 m3, for a visit of the 15,000 m3-production unit specializing in the production of Solférino maritime pine plywood.

Seismic trial at Institut technologique FCBA

 

Through a partnership with Kaufman & Broad, a seismic trial of a 1/3-scale model of the building systems in Silva tower will be held at FCBA mechanics laboratory. The workshop aims at showing how the laws of similarity allow to go from a 1/3-scale model to the full-size building. The trial will also be an opportunity to showcase the latest advances in tall building design and dimensioning with respect to seismic restrictions.
