The Union Investment company, owner of the new “Grand Central” building near Saint-Lazare station, called upon Axione’s expertise to provide an indoor coverage solution in the Pernod-Ricard offices. A request that demonstrates our ability to provide a reliable, bespoke solution for multi-operator mobile connectivity. 

In 2019, Axione was entrusted with providing a multi-operator 3G and 4G mobile coverage solution for Union Investment in the new Pernod-Ricard offices, as well as in the building’s common areas. Our teams installed 83 radio antennas over 4 months, providing all French and international employees optimal connectivity throughout the whole premises. Employees have access to several common areas where they are also able to fully maintain their connections during breaks.

“Grand Central”: a modern, multi-service building for businesses and the general public

The offices are part of a new multi-use ecosystem that provides employees with a pleasant and stimulating work environment. This new “Grand Central” space, with a total surface area of around 23,600m² near Saint-Lazare station in Paris, accommodates businesses, food courts and service areas, and 2,000m² of terraces and gardens. 

Employees will therefore fully benefit from the modern architecture of the “Grand Central” space, as it provides both space and light to its users thanks to its numerous glass facades.

This project is among Axione’s major accomplishments in terms of mobile network coverage, as it demonstrates our ability to provide a reliable, bespoke solution based on a client’s needs. Axione’s teams brought the premises online in June 2020.  

We were able to meet the deadlines, ensuring the timely commissioning of the indoor infrastructure for the mobile operators. Our teams managed to successfully complete the project despite the unprecedented situation we have faced in 2020
