ACTIPARC GEORGES BESSE II
A strategic spot that mingles service sector, high tech, research and training businesses

The Georges Besse Park is 5 minutes from Nîmes city centre and the TGV train station, and is also in close proximity to the A9 and A54 motorways.

The Georges Besse Actiparc stretches across 15 hectares, and is dedicated to businesses in science and technology, research, training and services.

100 companies have already set up here. Open campus, Michelin-starred chef and a signature architecture

PGB123 The building’s international signature and unique, innovative architecture enhances the image of Georges Besse Park as a business centre of the 21st century.
1000 m2 of offices will be built by the end of 2019.

The famous architect, Rudy Ricciotti, dreamed of a Nîmes project bearing his signature. That became a reality with this building: a 141-metre wide, 15-metre high structure with invisible armature, a north facade entirely of glass, and a jean print, a reminder of the celebrated denim fabric that hails from Nîmes.

The structure also features an exemplary environmental design, which in time will earn it the Sustainable Mediterranean Buildings (BDM) reference framework.
