For Bouygues Immobilier, the idea of starting a project without a vision of the future is inconceivable.
Marseille: an eco-neighbourhood designed for living together.
To meet the high sustainable development objectives, the eco-neighbourhood will combine energy-efficient, comfortable and scalable homes with offices, shops and many different services. The development will create secure local employment, in areas ranging from crafts to digital technology, and will include vast public spaces with sports facilities and redesigned leisure activities. The end result will be stronger social ties within the local community.
One of Bouygues Immobilier’s core priorities is to evolve and grow, by constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
Nextdoor: the next generation of work spaces
Nextdoor’s ambition is to develop spaces that are adapted to new working practices, with an accent on collaboration and mobility. Every month users can choose the amount of work space they need. Many spaces are shared (café, library, meeting rooms, etc.). The first Nextdoor building, located in the Issy-les-Moulineaux business district, opened its doors at the beginning of last summer. It provides both flexibility and comfort on a day-to-day basis.
Bird: financing innovative property development
In order to support the development of start-ups specialised in property development, Bouygues Immobilier has created a dedicated subsidiary. Over the course of 2015, Bird (Bouygues Immobilier R&D) took off and acquired its first two stakes: Mycloud3D, a company specialised in 3D modelling, and Lymo, the French leader in the crowdfunding of property developments.
Rueil-Malmaison: France’s largest positive-energy commercial property.
On the western fringes of Paris, Green Office® Rueil produces more energy than it consumes. Its heating requirements are met by thermo-active slabs coupled with a groundwater-based geothermal energy system and around 4,000m2 of roof-top photovoltaic panels that generate renewable energy. Green Office® Rueil holds the symbolic and honorary distinction of being France’s largest positive-energy commercial property!
Lyon: France’s first positive-energy mixed-use development
Inaugurated in September 2015, the Hikari project produces more energy than it consumes over a single year thanks to a bioclimatic architectural design and innovative renewable energy technologies. As France’s first mixed-use, positive-energy development, Hikari’s size and high level of innovation also make it one of Europe’s biggest demonstrators.
Bouygues Immobilier’s involvement in projects that are both ground-breaking and award-winning enables it not only to stand out from its rivals, but also to bolster the confidence of its customers and reaffirm its position as a leader in property development.
Paris: an apartment complex between dream and reality
The “HOME” programme consists of two buildings, one of which is the first apartment complex exceeding 50m to be built in the capital since 1970. The complex stands out for its unique architecture, an overlapping cascade of angles, terraces, balconies, glass panels and metal façades. It is an invitation to a sky-high voyage right in the heart of Paris.
Gentilly: Campus Sanofi Val de Bièvre wins the Simi “Grand Prix” award
Sustainable development and innovation were at the heart of the project. Key elements are an
open-air garden, a photovoltaic power plant, thermal solar panels and a rainwater recovery system that will ensure the well-being of the 3,000 employees present on the site.
Closely linked to innovation, this represents a dual challenge for Bouygues Immobilier: to develop its existing expertise while conquering new markets, particularly abroad.
Bordeaux: an eco-neighbourhood with even stronger sustainable development credentials
Built according to the most up-to-date environmental principles, the Ginko eco-neighbourhood stands out for its strong focus on the human and societal dimensions. The granting of a building permit for a shopping centre marks a new step forward in the development of this
eco-neighbourhood, which is strengthening social and intergenerational bonds.
Belgium: conquering the commercial property sector
This marks a new chapter for the Belgian business, with the company’s first building permit for a commercial development. The aim is to transform office space into housing units. This is a new departure for Bouygues Immobilier Belgium, which had, up until now, focused on residential property developments in Brussels.
Poland: Europe’s first HQE® (High Environmental Quality) residential property development
In north-west Warsaw, Bouygues Immobilier is building two HQE® buildings certified “Very Good” in the “Design” phase by the environmental auditor Cerway. This is the first residential development in Europe to receive HQE® (High Environmental Quality) accreditation.
Morocco: works begin on Bouygues Immobilier’s first development
Work has begun on the Les Faubourgs d’Anfa project in Casablanca. This is the company’s first project in Morocco, offering a wide range of apartments with international HQE®
(High Environmental Quality) certification.
Dialogue is all about resolving problems that arise in the construction process while bringing the entire workforce together.
France: the Solid’R corporate community action day saw employees donate more than 9,600 hours of their time.
In 12 French towns and cities, the company’s community action day saw all of its employees taking part in a wide range of projects addressing both social and environmental issues: the disabled, intergenerational bonds, the fight against social exclusion, the preservation of natural sites, etc.
All of these projects, and many more besides, can be found in the Bouygues Immobilier corporate video that reviews the highlights of 2015.
