May 2020, 2BDM wins the tender for the restoration and security of the Protestant temple in Saumur.
The entire building, which has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1991, was built in 1842 by Charles Joly-Leterme, architect for the City of Saumur. Composed of a rectangular nave whose entrance is marked by a portico and a colonnaded portico, the temple was regularly maintained until its bombing in 1940. It was then truly restored.
In 2019, a diagnostic study carried out by 2BDM showed that the tufa stone masonry of the façades was badly damaged, that the framework was poorly assembled and overloaded, and that the slate roof and its ridge were dilapidated. In addition, the building is weakened by poor management of rainwater. The estimated cost of the works is therefore estimated at €950,000 excluding VAT, comprising two phases of work. In order to carry out the mission entrusted to it by the City of Saumur, our agency called on the BET structure AR Ingénierie and the BET fluids E3F.
Our intervention on the building, beyond its simple restoration and perpetuation, will allow the Protestant temple to regain its rightful place in the landscape and heritage of Saumur.
