    The C2 Tower applies the MINERGIE A standard. It covers the electrical energy needs of common premises and equipment thanks to the installation of LUCIDO façades and photovoltaic solar collectors integrated in the parapets of the balconies as well as on the roof.
    The sixth floor stands out because it includes activities reserved for tenants and technical premises. The central position of the ventilation and sanitary appliances makes it possible to reduce the grip of the ducts in the dwellings but also to reduce the electrical consumption . It also offers on the half of the plateau a vegetated terrace reserved for residents.
