Restructuring of the Crédit Agricole head office in Toulouse. This building has eight storeys built above 3 parking levels, with diaphragm walls, and a floor slab in basement level 3. The floors are of the beam-slab or prestressed prefabricated ribbed floor type, on reinforced concrete columns and beams. The whole is divided into two blocks by an expansion joint; the uppermost block is braced by a reinforced concrete core incorporating the staircase and the lift shafts; the facades are not loadbearing.
