UPDATE FROM PASCAL ASSELIN ON RESTORATION NOTRE DAME PARIS

In the early evening on the 15th of April 2019, the historic cathedral Notre Dame de Paris caught fire. In the ensuing fifteen-hour blazing inferno, most of the roof and timber roof trusses disappeared in the flames. Eighteen months later, what is the current situation?

Emergency work including securing the building and clearing the rubble has been completed. The full diagnosis for the restoration will be completed by December 2020 and during 2021 calls for tenders will be launched for the reconstruction of the wood trusses and roofs. The reopening of the cathedral is scheduled for April 2024 and the full restoration work should be completed by 2035.

The health constraints due to the onsite presence of lead and the possible contamination by COVID 19 are very strict. To enter the work site, you must first totally strip down, put on disposable undergarments and coveralls. Then before leaving, a shower is obligatory. This protocol is the same for all the people who are working on the site.

Currently, the budget being spent on emergency and clearing works amounts to € 165 million. The overall cost for the restoration is estimated to be between 500 and 700M € (damage caused by the fire plus the overall restoration). My job is to monitor and advise the French state for the budgets that will be necessary for the overall restoration of the building.

CIQS AND CEEC STRENGTHEN THEIR TIES

For more than ten years CEEC and the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS) have been meeting eachother at various meetings around the world. During this years a strong bond developed and a delegation of the board of CIQS have been coming regularly to the meetings of CEEC. So at the PAQS-meeting in Malaysia in August 2019 it was further investigated how both parties could strengthen their bond. This resulted in a proposal for affiliate membership of CIQS that was ratified during the virtual General Assembly of CEEC in May 2020. CIQS is the premier professional association that sets the highest standard for construction and infrastructure economics in Canada. With the membership both parties pursue to continue collaborate/participation in like‐minded goals and activities of both associations.
