This Assisted employment establishment “Les Ateliers du Beffroi” is conceived to accommodate 206 users with intellectual disabilities whose capacities do not allow them to work in an ordinary company. Some professional activities give the possibility to put the users in a working situation in conditions as close as possible to those of the traditional environment but by offering them protected activities, accompanied by medical and social support.

Strong points

  • Industrial building integrating the constraints of the different processes and also the specificities induced by the handicaps of the workers
  • Structure adapted to the diversity of tasks assigned to the establishment thanks to the great flexibility of the workshops
  • Importance given to the supply of natural light (sheds), to acoustic comfort and – more generally – to the working environment (essential treatment for disabled workers)
  • Creation of a space for social connection, thanks to the dining hall open to the public
