Located close to Rueil-Malmaison station on the RER A suburban rail line, Green Office® Rueil is the largest positive-energy office development in France to date, with a net floor area of 35,000 m² on six storeys and three underground levels. The project gives priority to architectural quality, provided by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, sustainable development and individual user comfort.
Over a full year, Green Office® Rueil will produce energy from renewable sources in order to offset its regular energy consumption. This objective is achieved by means of a geothermal system which captures heat or cold from alluvial groundwater, reducing the amount of energy consumed in order to heat or cool the building. The system is supplemented by decentralised, adjustable ventilation for greater user comfort and more precise control of consumption. Energy is produced by 4,000 m² of rooftop photovoltaic panels, all the electricity from which is sold to power utility EDF.
Eric Mazoyer, Deputy CEO of Bouygues Immobilier, said “We are proud to have obtained the first Bepos-Effinergie label for an office building in France, proving the success of our range of Green Office® buildings”.
