They will do this in consortium with the French Pranlas-Descours architect et urbaniste (PDAA) for urban development, the Dutch engineering office Valstar-Simonis, the French engineering office EVP Ingénierie and the Spanish Boma Inpasa. Furthermore French Philippe Talbot et Associés, Cicad Consultants, TN+ and Peutz et associés are in the team.
