Sustainable buildings

Artelia’s Sustainable Buildings department brings together more than 40 specialists in environmental performance, energy efficiency and occupant comfort in buildings during the design, construction and operation phases.

Our consultancy, design and works supervision services include five key areas of expertise:

  • Environmental and energy-efficient design.
  • Energy performance monitoring.
  • Specialist calculations.

  • Improvement of assets.

  • Supervision of environmental certification .

Sensitive to environmental concerns and steeped in a culture of creativity and innovation, our services go beyond the scope of environmental certifications and eco-labels (HQE, BREEAM, LEED, WELL, BBCA, Effinergie, E+C-).

We view a building as rendering a service for its future users and pay special attention to minimising its environmental footprint and maximising comfort, adopting a life-cycle approach to ensure long-term durability. Drawing on our extensive know-how and experience, we are able to commit ourselves as to the building’s future energy consumption at the design stage and guarantee its performance in operation.

Since 2006, we have successfully participated in more than 350 real-estate projects (new construction or renovation) representing 2.7 million m2 in operation.
