What are LUMIBIRD's activities?

Philippe YVERNAULT: Put simply, LUMIBIRD specializes in laser sources. Its applications are extremely wide-ranging (for the defense, scientific and medical markets, among others). The group has several production centers in France and abroad, including QUANTEL - TECHNOLOGIES, which develops, designs and manufactures a range of solid-state lasers and laser diodes.

Why did you contact VÊPRES ?

PY: LUMIBIRD - QUANTEL used to be based in Les Ulis (Essonne), but we had to transfer our entire business to Villejust. The new building included existing offices as well as a technical area on which everything had to be built.

What were the special features of this project?

PY: One of the specifications included the construction of a cleanroom that could be reconfigured at a later date, should the need arise. A framework was therefore built to meet this requirement. This structure will enable partitions to be moved if necessary, without affecting the load-bearing elements, and was also used to remove the indoor air handling units.

Were there any special constraints on the site?

PY: The deadline itself... Eight months is a short timeframe for this type of project. To make it tenable, the first visits and the pre-study took place in February, so that VÊPRES could check the technical feasibility and position itself on a solution and costing. But there was no competitive bidding: we adjusted, negotiated and sometimes simplified the order, but the trust placed in us even before the contract was signed saved time and therefore money.

What do you think are the main advantages of VÊPRES ?

PY: I'm very satisfied with VÊPRES 's service, in terms of adherence to schedule, cost estimates, quality of work and choice of installation teams: everything is very professional and communication is perfect. The high level of co-activity with another site, which is never easy, was well managed. The team is very efficient, knows how to anticipate unforeseen events and also has a good after-sales service, very available, which is appreciated after delivery.
