La Ciotat Shipyards has started the tendering process for the allocation of 19 premises within the LCS Yachting Village that is currently under construction and will complete the development of the site.
The proposed premises, corresponding to phases one and two (out of four) of the scheduled works, consist mainly of workshop areas designed for industrial purposes. This is in accordance with the vocation of the site and the contract signed with the Aix-Marseille- Provence Metropole. The premises will be completed over the course of 2020.
For each premises, a desired type of activity has been defined according to a preliminary analysis of the site conducted by La Ciotat Shipyards. For some premises, the ‘intended use’ is only given as a guideline, which hopes to encourage more companies to consider the proposition.
“With this yachting village, we are pursuing the implementation of our new strategic plan, approved in 2018,” explains Jean-Yves Saussol, CEO of La Ciotat Shipyards and LCS Yachting Village. “We are completing our portfolio of activities realised locally, both to expand our expertise and to minimise the use of external employees and companies. We will thus strengthen our competitiveness and create more jobs.”
The procedure for pre-allocation of the premises will begin well in advance so that the potential needs of the companies can be considered before the filing of building permits, which is expected this spring. Applications need to be submitted by March 15, 2019.
