A non-standard building for finance at high-speed


The establishment of trading rooms in the Basalte building, specially built for this purpose at La Defense by Nexity on behalf of the Société Générale was a huge challenge, to the extent of the building that inhabits and the technical constraints of finance at high speed.

Initiated in 2006, with a construction driven by the 234 Agency (architect Jean Mas), the building had to have the strongest infrastructure to compete with major European banks in the technologies used, including thousands of miles of fiber optics, high-performance generators, perfect vibration isolation of the RN 314.

The building is “non-standard” for La Défense since it has 50,000 square meters, but on only 5  floors containing each a trading room of nearly 5000 square meters.


A huge technical and organizational challenge


It is after the building being delivered, that really started the AMT intervention, alongside teams of Société Générale, to prepare the logic of non-standard transfer, in which the computer and connectivity have a privileged place. Let’s look at few figures; not only the concerned workforce has almost 2900 workstations, but focused on more than 5000 CPUs connected to 8500 screens, plus 350 controllers (for backup management).

To achieve this high-tech transfer, testing began in October 2013, and the transfer elapsed until early April 2014 in accordance with production schedules and specific to this very special world of technological constraints trading rooms.


A highly planned intervention


Two years of preparations were needed to plan the transfer, during which two people from AMT worked full-time directly with the teams of the Société Générale in the preparatory tasks; planning, timings, and estimated volumes, all in support of multiple user interviews.

One of the most distinguishing aspects of the transfer, to ensure continuity of operation of trading rooms was to operate in two alternative modes: a phase of installation on weekdays (pre-installation), during which some equipment was disconnected and packaged, a phase of realization in weekend (installation) during which the CPUs were moved to take advantage of the closure of the marketplaces.

AMT has ensured a continuous presence


For each of the phases, from 30 to 50 movers were present continuously, supported by an enhanced structure of 4 and 6 coordinators.

This alternation is maintained for six months continuously, with only one break around the year-end festive season. Transfers consisted primarily of monitors and CPUs, which were added movable meeting rooms, archives and documents, telephones and telephone systems, as well as heavy lifting, e.g. PLC systems backups.


One reason for the success of this operation probably lies in the test planning phase, in which all stages of the transfer were timed, allowing a constant measure of performance and differences to fit into the schedules of transfer.

Through dedication and a steering 7/7 of AMT and Société Générale teams, trading rooms are now operational in Basalt and have been operating all the days of market opening.
