Renovation and rehabilitation of the Albert 1er Refuge
The Albert-1er refuge is located in France in Chamonix Mont-Blanc in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
Inaugurated in 1930 by King Albert 1er of Belgium. this refuge underwent a renovation five years later, then an extension completed in 1959.
At the end of the 20th century, due to the increase in the number of visitors to the site and its high accessibility, a new expansion project was launched.
In 2011, the renovation and rehabilitation project began with our architect’s design firm. Delivery took place in July 2014.
The shelter now has a renovated, raised roof and an additional floor. The janitor’s kitchens and apartments have also been renovated.

Cost of the works: 2,700,000 € TTC
