TBS Education announces plans for new campus in Toulouse
published on 30.01.24
TBS Education is delighted to announce its ambitious real estate project in Toulouse. This strategic plan, unanimously approved by the Board of Directors in December 2023, provides for a major overhaul of the Entiore and Lascrosses campuses, symbolizing a significant transformation for our school.
A RESPONSIBLE AND INNOVATIVE PROJECT FOCUSED ON THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE
TBS Education has reassessed its real estate options after suspending the initial project to build the Compans-Caffarelli campus. The new project aims to be both responsible and innovative, seeking to consolidate activities in two emblematic buildings: Entiore and Lascrosses. This consolidation aims to strengthen the cohesion of the training courses, encourage collaboration, and reduce operating costs.
The project also aims to increase intake capacity to meet growing student demand while diversifying the school’s activities. Innovation in the design of the spaces, incorporating educational well-being, is at the heart of this initiative.
“The unanimous decision of our Board of Directors reflects our collective commitment to a sustainable vision for TBS Education. By redefining our campus project, we are reaffirming our societal mission and our determination to provide a first-class educational environment.“
Pierre Hurstel, Chairman of TBS Education
KEY DATES AND OUTLOOK
At the heart of this transformation, the Entiore campus in Quint-Fonsegrives is about to undergo an expansion, seeing its surface area double from 10,500 m2 to more than 20,000 m2, with an ambitious vision of potentially eventually reaching 30,000 m2. The available 10 hectares of land around the current Entiore buildings will be redeveloped to accommodate sports activities, shared gardens and outdoor spaces dedicated to events. This campus is destined to become the heart of the school’s activity. In addition, the creation of a student residence and accommodation for staff is currently being evaluated with the Toulouse Haute-Garonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
2024 marks the launch of this innovative project, with a call for tenders for project management assistance. Final handover is expected in 2028, marking the completion of an ambitious project and the start of a new chapter for TBS Education.
