On 30 September 2011, SYSTRA, a leading global engineering consultancy for rail and urban transport, signed a long-term lease on the whole surface area of the Farman building (26,800 m2), located at 72-76 rue Henry Farman in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.
In 2012, SYSTRA will bring together all its teams in the Paris region along with those of Inexia and Xelis —subsidiaries of French railway operator (SNCF) and the Paris Metro (RATP), respectively, with which it will form a single company of more than 1,500 people — under this one roof.
Designed by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Farman's space is structured around an inner roadway. It has a garden bordered with a green wall and is directly accessible from the T2 tramway.
Farman, which has earned High Environmental Quality® certification, is the only BBC-Effinergie-certified low-energy building to be delivered and leased out in the Paris region. Its energy consumption is 50% lower than current thermal regulations.
Farman is located at the heart of the new Seine Ouest business district, which spans 160,000 m2 and already houses major companies such as Bouygues Telecom, Microsoft, Bull and Safran.
