laurent sermanet




Since 1997, I have gained substantial experience as an architect working in new building and rehabilitation projects, monitoring each operational phase from conception to realization, from small to very large scale. Sectors of professional expertise include:
• Medical and social (elderly housing and residential area (EHPAD, MAPAD, RPA), psychiatric hospital)
• Health (public & private hospitals, dialysis centers, radiology centers)
• Residential (social & private accommodation - individual & collective)
• Offices
• Industrial (logistic platforms)
• Urban projects, urban planning
I am used to manage relationships with client partners ranging from project private owners, public institutions, engineering consulting firms and offices of control, construction companies, land surveyors, landscape designer and local authorities. I have acquired a sound knowledge of regulations in urbanism, public building, fire security, and accessibility to handicapped persons. Projects I worked for in France encompassed some key international companies such as VINCI Construction, Eiffage, and Bouygues. I also performed studies for urban & architectural projects in the United Arab Emirates. Calm and resourceful under pressure, I am capable of working as a contributor and leader of a team as well as independently under low supervision.
