Rénovation De L’immeuble Remplacement Des Ouvrants/ Replacement and Renovation of Windows

  • Solicitation Number: IFB 17-0462
  • Issue Date: Jun 20,2017
  • Closing Date: Jul 20,2017



La Banque Mondiale, dans son site parisien situé 66, avenue d’Iéna à Paris souhaite remplacer des vitrages pour tout ou partie des niveaux en superstructure. Les travaux se dérouleront en horaire normal de 8h00 à 18h00 pour certains niveaux, et pendant les weekends pour d’autres. Certaines interventions de modifications seront réalisées de nuit à partir de 22h00 jusqu’à 6h00.

La réalisation des travaux nécessitera le départ des occupants de la zone en travaux ; il conviendra donc de travailler niveau par niveau et zone par zone (une zone étant environ 8 fenêtres), une organisation des travaux par demi-niveau semblant très difficile à réaliser, du fait de l’organisation de la distribution primaire dans l’immeuble. Cette méthode permettra l’exécution des travaux dans de bonnes conditions, tant pour l’entreprise que pour les occupants de l’immeuble.

L’organisation générale des travaux devra débuter par une phase d’étude et de relevés par l’entreprise, notamment pour des prises de côtes, la mise en fabrication des fenêtres ou l’approvisionnement des équipements spécifiques.

Une fois les études terminées et les approvisionnements réalisés, les travaux in situ pourront alors démarrer ; nous prévoyons alors, pour chaque zone d’intervention, les étapes successives suivantes :

-      Installation de chantier et de sécurité,

-      Protection des installations à conserver,

-      Dépose des fenêtres et des coffrages des convecteurs qui sont conservés,

-      Pose des nouveaux vitrages, de l’isolation thermique, remise en place des coffrages existants et adaptation des ouvrages,

Cette organisation envisagée sera confirmée dans le cadre de la réponse de l’entreprise dans son mémoire. Tous les matériels utilisés devront être conformes aux normes françaises (AFNOR).


The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (The World Bank) invites qualified firms to submit sealed bids to provide services associated with the World Bank’s requirement for the replacement and renovation of the windows located at the WBG Office 66 Avenue d’Iéna

75016 PARIS, Paris, France. Works will be done from 8:00 AM till 6:00 PM on weekdays for part of the floors, and on weekends for other floors. Some modification works will need to be done at night between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM.

Works will require that no occupant is in the area under construction. It will be necessary to work level by level and zone by zone (a zone being approximately 8 windows). A work planning by half-level seems very difficult to be achieved, due to the organization of the primary distribution in the building. This method will allow the execution of the works in good conditions, for both the contractor and the occupants of the building.

The planning of the works should begin with a study and survey phase done by the contractor, in particular for taking dimensions, manufacturing the windows or supplying specific equipment.

Once the studies have been completed and the equipment supplied, the site works can begin. It is foreseen, for each work zone, the following successive steps:

-     Site and safety installation,

-     Protection of existing equipment,

-     Removal of windows and fan coil covers that will be reused,

-     Installation of new glazing, thermal insulation, existing fan coil covers and adaptation of structures.

This planned phasing will be confirmed as part of the company's response in its submission.

All equipment used should be conform to the French norm (AFNOR).

Sample Mandatory Criteria:

1.      Evidence of minimum related sales revenue equivalent to €3 million per year, averaged over the last three (3) years, while performing as a General Contractor.
