Covid, export and consultation
This last semester 2020 Richez_Associés newsletter obviously includes the lockdown, round 2. A technical sideline - our home working methods setup during round 1, running even more smoothly with a dose of recently authorised face-to-face contacts, have of course helped and the prospects of a vaccine now shines at the end of the tunnel. Worry perhaps, weariness certainly crossed our minds when everything seemed to start again and, for no reason to stop abruptly from one day to the next - but the whole team is doing well and the daily Covid newsletter from Jean, our crisis editor, is there to maintain our spirits high! His frontpages are eagerly awaited - you will discover some of them at the end of this newsletter ...
Meanwhile some recently announced results in France as well as abroad, you will see that riverbank and coastline projects are predominant - a twofold invitation to travel afar, or within a radius of 20 km are once again possible.
And somewhat surprisingly, public consultation became part our work and studies. A common practice today to better understand local expectations and ensure that projects will be accepted. Acquired during operations in Mauguio, La Défense, Aulnay-sous-Bois, Le Havre and Choisy-le-Roi, Richez_Associés now has an expertise in public involvement in the making of the city.
Devised as a dialogue with the AHTTEP/AUSSER laboratory in Paris La Villette, the “La ville en partage” exhibition at the Val de Bièvre eco-museum illustrates the Richez_Associés project undertaken by Vincent Cottet on the 1970s Navigateurs estate in Choisy - to be discovered in January… Covid permitting !
