The French construction group Eiffage has won a contract worth 30 million euros to renovate a building of the Ministry of Finance located in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris to make a police station.
Three weeks ago, the Parisians chose the new name of the boroughs of the center (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th): it will be Paris Center. They also voted in favor of the 3rd to represent these four boroughs, following the citizen vote that took place last October. It is therefore logical that the third was chosen to host one of the main police stations in the capital.

In 2017, the Ministry of the Interior issued a call for tenders to rehabilitate the building Ilôt Perrée which belonged to the Ministry of Finance (see photo below), according to the official bulletin of public procurement announcements. Built in 1908, this "Warranty Service" building was used to ensure compliance and then to mark the warranty mark if they are legal precious metals and products from the industry and craftsmanship of goldsmithery .
Eiffage won the contract for 30 million euros. A sum slightly lower than the estimate of 35 million euros made by the Ministry. The French construction group has entrusted Pradeau Morin, a subsidiary of Eiffage Construction, with the construction and renovation works. They will concern about 80% of the useful surface delivered (4474 m ² on 5626 m ²) of this building located close to the town hall of IIIe arrondissement (see below).

The project will begin in December 2019 and is expected to be completed in November 2021, when the new office will be delivered.
