Energy-intensive building

Developed under real state promotion contract by Nacarat, this set of 20 600 m² of offices divided into four buildings, will host all future services of the SNCF, with capacity for 1600 people.

Designed by the Agency Devillers & Associates and built by Rabot Dutilleul Construction as general contractor, the Monet not only offers spacious and comfortable workspaces around a patio. The program, located in the new business district of Landy, is also fully engaged in urban renewal policy of “La Plaine Saint Denis” and the requalification of the former site of GDF gas plants. Certified Non-residential building under construction- HQE® and Low energy consumption building (BBC Effinergie), it contributes to the energy transition of its territory, as illustrated by the rooftop installation of 595 m² of photovoltaic panels. This "fifth facade" should allow an annual production of 70,000 kWh, redistributed on the public network. A first for Nacarat!

Sustainable development approach of the project owner

A pioneer in the field of eco-design, Nacarat is engaged in a process of social and environmental responsibility, based on ISO 26000 reference. This commitment is definitely illustrated by high environmental and social value-added operations such as Monet . Project stakeholders, MOE, advice, business, were up to the high ambitions of the project yet. The stress. Anxious to anticipate the regulations on energy efficiency, Nacarat designed this project, responding to BBC standards even before the office repository is established. Certified NF tertiary buildings - HQE®, Monet focuses on controlling consumption thanks to increased external insulation. In order to obtain the label Effinergie® BBC, which embodies the reduction of more than 50% of energy consumption reference RT 2005, Monet welcomes 595 m2 of photovoltaic panels on the roof. Annual production is estimated at 70,000 kWh, this electricity is distributed to the public network.

Architectural description

A modular project where transparency and vegetation coexist:
- We imagined an exceptional building by its flexibility. When the SNCF spoke about their interest, we could easily reshape the project to the specific needs of the company, including creating a second input and adding modular meeting rooms. The objective is to think the building over the long term.
- In addition, Monet consists of four buildings open on all four facades, connected by transparent bridges and the center of which extends a patio. The project provides a large place to vegetation; the terraces, roofs and patio will be widely planted promoting rainwater retention and creating an ecosystem pleasant to work.

Building users opinion

Not yet occupied (in September 2015).

If you had to do it again?

Complex project but very well executed: it is a great pride for Nacarat and Rabot Dutilleul Construction. We were referring to the same thing. Maybe taking into account the interest of the territory for the circular economy, integrating waste recycling in concrete by example ... to follow in other projects.
