The Gare Maritime, consisting of seven interconnected historic railway station halls, was converted into a large office, shopping, gastronomy and event complex. ZÜBLIN Timber erected four or five-storey buildings in the halls 12 in pure wood construction, consisting of large ribbed ceilings (LENO Cross Laminated Timber board on glulam rib) on a support structure. In a twelve-month construction period, 9,000 m³ of timber was used, of which 6,000 m³ was LENO Cross Laminated Timber and 3,000 m³ glued laminated timber, 200 m³ veneer laminated timber and 80 m³ beech.
