FIND OUT MORE PHOTO GALLERY PROJECT INFORMATION Originally constructed in the 1970s, the surgical unit of the Central Hospital of Brive-la-Gaillarde (19) has been given a new skin. At the heart of this major project is the energy-specific updating of façades facing the south-west and south-east. Under the leadership of the Espagno Milani Architects agency in conjunction with Approved Aluminium Frame-makers Meniere et Mas, the project is distinguished by the design of a double skin, curtain walls and a ventilated and custom-made façade involving 5,700 m² of GEODE curtain walls, with a horizontal layout grid and SUNEAL canopy. Initiated in November 2012, the project will be completed in October 2014.
