To house the workers on the Aigle construction site, a company town was built on the plains around the village of Aynes. The buildings, made of wood and sheet metal on a standard model, became home to practically everyone on the site. Workers came from everywhere and the population reached 1200 in 1943. There were as many as 30 nationalities: Spaniards, Poles, Italians, Indochinese, North Africans and more. The town boasted a chapel, a school, a reception hall and an infirmary. The furniture was provided by the Companions of the Aigle on the Dordogne Friendly Association.
