On September 23, the second visit will take place for individuals and professionals wishing to recover materials and items before major rehabilitation work at the Dauphine center. A reuse operation, before the start of heavier work.
Before the start of the renovation of the Center Dauphine in Dijon, a “participatory deposit” materials will be possible for interested individuals and professionals. One way to be able to reuse elements and materials to facilitate work before the other phases of the site.
Reuse in construction
The construction sector is the largest generator of waste in France and the ja Lyon-based company created in March 2020, Bobi Réemploi, is maneuvering for this operation.
What can we reuse? The answer is “almost everything!” According to Sophie Lambert, manager of Bobi Réemploi. At the Dauphine center, the premises were occupied by shops and offices. All furniture items such as doors, partitions, cupboards will be dismantled by professionals and individuals.
But also the equipment in the shops, such as hairdressing chairs, counters, lighting … even the trash cans of the Dauphine center have been reserved!
Bobi Réemploi is in a process of supporting the client, the Lyon-based company Demathieu Bard Immobilier, which has undertaken to reuse materials from the Dauphine center. For example, the paving of the Dauphine center in Burgundy stone will be reused.
But it goes longer: “during a first visit, professionals and individuals were able to identify the materials and elements they wanted to re-use. We took care to only offer things that were not in contact with asbestos or ban those that contained it. “
Individuals and professionals registered on a list of applicants, which was quickly complete. “30 people signed up to reserve materials. Priority was given first to professionals, then to larger volumes, and finally a drawing of lots made it possible to decide on the last.
About twenty people will begin to dismantle the items that interest them on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 September. The day of October 1 makes it possible to settle the last details. ” explains Sophie Lambert.
For professionals, reuse is “a common practice, on a site, reuse materials related to its activity is a frequent choice.”. But the operation is also open to individuals: “They are residents, residents of Dijon, rather preferring to take a souvenir of the Dauphine center. For example, the trash cans in the center with their metal strapping have been reserved!”
To avoid any mess on the days of dismantling, the Bobi Réemploi company will be present to guide professionals, but especially individuals. “less expert in dismantling than craftsmen”
Reuse facing the cost of raw materials
The shortage of raw materials in the construction sector, is accompanied by the soaring prices, for example in the wood industry, where many trades are impacted: carpenters-roofers, joiners. Sophie Lambert notes that “This shortage has created an opportunity for re-used materials. The advantages are numerous: we know where the material is located, and its cost of reuse is only linked to labor. But there is also a limit. , in structural materials, where we want to know the resistance of what is used, we have to go through diagnostics. Often we prefer new materials. “
On the construction design side, we also take up the challenge. Sophie Lambert works with the architecture firm Architecture Sauvage, and note that “reuse is gaining interest among architects: this certainly imposes new constraints, such as recovering glazing with specific dimensions, but requires adaptation.”
A long-term project
These dismantling operations in September are preliminary to the removal of asbestos from the building (built in the 1970s) and then to complete cleaning. Deconstruction operations will then take place, for an estimated opening in the second half of 2023.
