Air Liquide research centre

Air Liquide research centre
Context & Issues

As a means of encouraging cross-disciplinary exchanges, Air Liquide has decided to group together in a single building the 350 researchers and 48 laboratories at its main R&D site on the Paris-Saclay campus. The new building, designed in a collaborative manner using BIM techniques, will be an innovation showcase for the group.

Some of its electricity will come from renewable sources (solar, biogas) and it will also be supplied by an on-site fuel cell, which will be a first in France. Air Liquide intends to offer its employees the best possible working conditions, maintain a high level of safety and security, and obtain a “BREEAM Very Good” environmental rating for the facilities.
