CA Immobilier to help Franche Comté Regional Bank renovate its headquarters

By 2020, customers and employees of Crédit Agricole Franche Comté will discover a completely transformed head office. As part of its approach of keeping close ties to the region, the mutual bank decided to keep its head office in the centre of Besancon. Crédit Agricole Immobilier is providing support to the Regional Bank's restructure of its 7,000 m² office space to provide a modern working environment and face the new challenges to the service industry. This will be a genuine architectural challenge: the renovation will need to take the city-centre restrictions into account. It will also aim to reduce the environmental impact and keep disturbances to the local community under control.
