The Open Ocean team is joining the Artelia Group, a leading European engineering firm specialising in building construction, infrastructure, water, industry and the environment.
Having enjoyed constant growth since 2010, Artelia recorded significant increases in turnover and operating income in 2018, consolidating both its development strategy and its shareholding model.
Artelia has signed an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) relating to the Gadagne Museums and Vaise swimming pool in Lyon, acting as lead firm in a consortium with ENGIE Cofely and Alep Architecture. This is the first contract of this type to be instigated by Lyon City Council, and it stipulates a 24% reduction in energy consumption over a ten-year period.
On 15 March 2019 the Artelia Group announced that it is acquiring engineering consultancy Gantha, with whom it intends to propose new environmental services and harness synergies in the fields of acoustics, pollution dispersion and fluid mechanics.
On 20 November 2018 the Artelia Group signed the agreement to acquire a stake in Openergy, a start-up that specialises in simulating energy consumption in buildings and monitoring energy performance contracts (EPC).
On 13 November 2018, Mr François Villeroy de Galhau, Governor of the Banque de France, officially inaugurated the bank’s new facility in La Courneuve (north of Paris). The 4.5 ha brownfield site formerly occupied by Babcock factories was transformed over a 5-year period by a consortium comprising the Artelia Group and architecture firm Jean-Paul Viguier & Associés.
Marne-la-Vallée, 10 October 2018 – Today, the Artelia Group is signing a partnership with the Ecole des Ponts – ParisTech engineering school. Artelia, now one of France’s three leading engineering groups, is establishing lasting partnerships with the top French engineering schools to attract the high-calibre graduates it needs to continue developing.
4 July 2018 - Via the “Fondation Partenariale Grenoble INP” foundation, Artelia has established a three-year partnership with Grenoble INP - Ense³, thereby reaffirming its longstanding commitment to the school and higher education on a whole.
On Thursday 14 June, a half-day seminar dedicated to the challenges underlying the fast-growing timber frame construction sector was organised in Paris at the initiative of Artelia, an international consultancy, engineering and project management group.
2017 was the sixth consecutive year in which Artelia saw its activity and operating results increase, providing ample justification of its development strategy and shareholding model. The group's turnover reached €485m, an increase of 10.5%, including 6% through organic growth.
