ARBONIS is a major player in the construction industry, specializing in wood structures in France and abroad. ARBONIS combines "carpenter know-how" and industrial expertise to design and build buildings and equipment, from the simplest to the most elaborate, integrating wood as a partial or total constructive solution. ARBONIS is equipped with the tools, means and expertise necessary to carry out any type of project in separate lots, macro lots or all trades (general wood construction and design-build):

Engineering :

Integrated design offices to provide the appropriate answers, from the preliminary project to the execution studies

Manufacturing and prefabrication:

Four production units in France to supply wood components or prefabricated elements within controlled deadlines

Construction :

Competent implementation teams in France and abroad to guarantee quality assembly

Constructive solutions :

Timber frame, glued laminated timber structure, 3D modular, but also any solution required for projects from the structure to the cladding.


Designed by architect Jacques Ferrier and built by Chantiers Modernes Construction (leader) and Arbonis, both subsidiaries of VINCI Construction France, Aqualagon is the flagship project of Villages Nature Paris (a joint venture between Pierre et Vacances-Center Parcs and Euro Disney), located 32 km from Paris in the municipalities of Villeneuve-le-Comte, Bailly-Romainvilliers and Serris (Seine-et-Marne). A real technical feat, Aqualagon is a 280-meter long glass pyramid with 7,000 square meters of floor space on four levels and includes a wave pool, six giant slides, a river, a spa, three Jacuzzis and two wading pools. The pyramid is extended by three outdoor pools with a total surface area of 3,500 m², including a pool heated to 30°C all year round and a 2,100 m² lagoon. This site is also remarkable in terms of wood construction, with massive pieces (some weighing 4.5 tons) in the shape of giant boomerangs that make up the framework of the pyramid. This project required 800 m3 of spruce and Douglas fir.
