The new Nugesser stadium of Valenciennes will replace the existing stadium.
The irregular nature of traffic and parking means that large areas of reinforced grass could be offered to residents as areas for games and relaxation outside of periods of sporting events.
Specific tree tutors have been designed in order to fully meet the constraints of the site. All aspects related to this topic have been studied, ranging from the differences in level induced by the new lawn to the treatment of retaining walls, planting on a slope or in alignment, etc.
Specific work has been carried out on the staking of trees, which strongly determines the tree development in the first few years, in order to integrate them in the occasional parking on the site.
