PROJECT DESCRIPTION

An emblematic site, isolated points of tourist interest, a rugged landscape and highly constrained area. These are the reasons why the cable transport was an evidence to connect two strategic points of the territory together with public facilities and points of interest. Sophia Antipolis Urban Community had this objective : to have fewer cars in transit, easy access to various attractions and a vastly improved visitors experience.

OUR APPROACH

The mission started with a market study and a comprehensive diagnosis of the territory. Once identified the constraints, several alternatives were proposed, analyzed and compared, as well as all associated facilities (parking lots, corridors, access). The final draft was then subject to a precise characterization including longitudinal profile, proposal of technology, development plans, costing, analysis of operating costs, estimated planning of studies, etc. Due to the natural and historic interest of the site, the issue of landscape integration was crucial: minimizing co-visions, especially from the hilltop village of Gourdon, play with the natural movements of terrain and existing technologies to offer the most integrated line possible. Local stakeholders and government bodies were associated to design an ambitious but realistic and federative project.
