The Ecole d'Avignon
Today, the rehabilitation of old buildings is a subject which comes into play across entire town and village centers. This enlarged concept of the traditional built environment is referred to as architectural heritage.
This is precisely the area of intervention of the Ecole d'Avignon which specializes in the conservation and the rehabilitation of this heritage: architecture, materials, trades, techniques, resources.
The Ecole d'Avignon was created in 1983 from a desire to define the skills required for working on the architectural heritage.
For the past twenty years, the Ecole d'Avignon has been at the heart of the debate on the subject of rehabilitation and has gradually progressed from being a simple training center to become an internationally renowned resource center. It has brought together, under one roof, all of the specialized skills from each profession which, normally, would only participate in one single part of the overall project.
Today, the Ecole d'Avignon can offer a collection of services designed to accompany three main target groups in their work: contracting authorities from the private and public sector, general contractors and those in charge of realizing a project.
