European Heritage Days 2021, heritage preservation in the DNA of the Apave Group

On the occasion of the 38th European Heritage Days, Apave invites you to discover and rediscover various remarkable heritages for which the teams regularly work on their safety and therefore on their preservation.
From the Eiffel Tower to the restoration of Notre Dame de Paris, via the Grand Palais, numerous châteaux such as Azay-le-Rideau, Amboise and Chantilly, religious monuments such as Fontevraud Abbey and Bayeux Cathedral, unusual heritage sites such as the Aiguille du Midi and the Frégate l'Hermione, or remarkable buildings such as the Hospices de Beaune and the Hôtel de Ville in La Rochelle, Apave puts all its know-how to work to preserve these exceptional sites.
From fire or electrical installation inspections to technical construction inspections on renovation sites, and including certification, Apave works on sites that are as unusual as they are surprising. 
The diversity of our heritage, whether tangible or intangible, traditional or more unexpected, makes us aware of the need to conserve it. "More than ever, we are convinced that security is the foundation of all progress, that it must be perennial and contribute to preserving the lives of people and infrastructures," comments Philippe Maillard, when talking about the preservation of heritage.

Moreover, Ernest Zuber, vice-president of the Société Industrielle de Mulhouse, which founded Apave in 1867, took part in the construction of the Eiffel Tower in 1887 at the request of Gustave Eiffel. For more than 130 years, Apave has been involved in the maintenance, rehabilitation and preservation of France's heritage through a wide range of missions.

If our heritage is so rich and alive today, it is thanks to all the players who work every day to maintain it, enhance it and attract new visitors, in complete safety. Apave is proud to be part of it!
