Sustainable development approach of the project owner


It is important to stress that the implementation of a project which has sustainable development as its basic principle is based above all on a sensitive listening to the different points of view, the renunciation of ready-made solutions, time for reflection and reflection. Consequent arbitration, a particularly dynamic project management and a commitment of all in an eco-responsible vision of design, construction and development.

The sustainable development approach therefore supposes:

- that the various partners and users of the project (inhabitants, managers, users, residents, etc.) be involved from the start of this dynamic in order to build a "life project" or "use" from a "diagnosis shared ";

- that the client creates a real dynamic of the project around shared objectives and that the various actors have the capacity to synthesize the contributions of the various expertises and regularly update their skills;

- a systemic approach to the project, and therefore the multidisciplinarity and ability to listen to the various actors in the operation (in particular project owners, programmers and project managers).

Architectural description

Urban environment

    The operation is located at 12 rue de Monceau in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The building, built in 1929 by the architect J. HIRSCH, is located near the Champs Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the Parc Monceau.
