Located on 18,000 square meters, the complex includes seven soccer fields, along with a central building featuring fitness and gym rooms, a multi-purpose area, a restaurant, and two swimming pools.

Conceived by architect Christophe Gulizzi in dominant shades of black, the center was completed in only 10 months thanks to the efficient cooperation of the working teams and suppliers. In harmony with the architect’s concept, CEMEX in France supplied 400 cubic meters of black Advanci® Architectonique ready-mix concrete. CEMEX also provided 1,200 square meters of grey ready-mix concrete with black quartz stones for paving, as well as 300 square meters of ready-mix concrete pavement outside of the facility, bush-hammered to expose special black aggregates.
