Profil et organisation

Profil et organisation


The group SOMIVAL is formed by the merger of three entities having a common history related to spatial planning public policies and french private engineering development.

More than 50 years of history

Created by the State in 1962, SOMIVAL was originally a mixed economy company, having the articles of a Regional Development Company (S.A.R.) whose vocation was the « DEVELOPMENT OF AUVERGNE AND LIMOUSIN REGIONS ».

Its general mission has been, for over 40 years, to contribute to the planning, equipment and economic development of the Massif Central and, particularly, the Auvergne and Limousin regions.

The evolution of public policies of territory development and the decentralization laws have gradually changed the mission of SOMIVAL. To sustain the company and preserve its expertise, its public shareholders wished to privatize SOMIVAL.

In October 2003, an order in State Council initiated the privatization of SOMIVAL and the public shareholders transferred their participation.

Strenghtened by its history, closely linked to local communities, and due to its multidisciplinary skills, SOMIVAL operates today throughout the national territory.

The SOMIVAL group offers to its customers a team of a hundred consultants, experts, engineers, architects and technicians combining technical, financial, legal, marketing and socio-economic expertises. The main areas of expertise include:

- the environment;

- tourism and territories;

- urban development, VRD and roads;

- buildings and civil engineering;

- drinking water, sanitation and irrigation;

- hydraulic;

- energy.
