The expansion project of the Jean Brito high school in Bain-de-Bretagne, France has been under study since 2012. Delivered in August 2018, the restructuring concerns the extension of the educational buildings, the catering and living areas school and entrance hall. Thanks to the project of the oriental architecture firm DDL Architects, the school has gone from an initial capacity of 600 pupils to a capacity of 1,200 pupils. Its useful surface has doubled after two years of work.
To meet the aesthetic and practical objectives of the architects, and the constraints of compliance with fire regulations, more than 2,000 sqm of Ignipli® panels (3 solid plies of spruce and fire-retardant poplar plywood) were chosen to adorn the walls and interior ceilings in classrooms, refectory and office buildings.
