Primary energy need
(Calculation method : RT 2012 )
Sustainable and efficient manufacturing while thinking about new professional uses: with the PLURIEL operation, QUARTUS has built the first office building in Lyon in Gerland designed entirely in a wooden structure, certified E2C1 and BBCA excellent.
This building, made up of 6 levels and 2,203 m² of floor area, was initially designed with a concrete structure. QUARTUS, due to its raison d'être, has changed the specifications towards a wooden structure and low-carbon materials selected by the architect Régis Gachon and the EODD design office.
Pluriel was delivered to SCI Unofimmo in February 2022.
Actively participate in the ecological transition
The building was designed with a very strong environmental quality approach in order to make the building more ecological, sustainable and comfortable for users, while refining the aesthetics of the facades. Thus the building fits perfectly into its urban environment and stands out on the scale of the district as a building for tertiary use.
The building is certified BBCA excellent, E2C1 and is aiming for Breeam certification (very good level). It shows an RT2012 -39% level.
This double certification is equivalent to a level of performance improved by 10% compared to RT 2012 and attests to the exemplary nature of this building in terms of carbon footprint.
The BBCA label quantifies and values, thanks to an independent certified measurement, the reduction of the carbon footprint of the building over its entire life cycle (construction, operation, end of life, carbon storage), achieved thanks to the implementation of virtuous low-carbon practices.
The concrete infrastructure has been kept to a minimum and develops 14 parking spaces.
The envelope and equipment have good energy performance: efficient insulation, airtight building, efficient heating, double-flow ventilation, efficient LED lighting, etc.
Solar protection optimized according to the facade (BSO or fabric blind) limits summer overheating.
Abundant and high-quality natural lighting, as well as access to exterior views, improve the visual comfort of users.
Water consumption is controlled by the installation of economical sanitary equipment.
The health quality of indoor air is particularly improved by limiting VOC and formaldehyde emissions, by the choice of construction materials used and by the installation of an efficient ventilation system.
Building users opinion
According to the surveys we conducted with occupants following their installation, it appears that they are particularly sensitive to the qualities of atmosphere, warmth and color that wood brings to workspaces.
The occupants also appreciate the attic top floor which has an open-air terrace, on which everyone can meet, discuss or simply relax.
Finally, the fully vegetated terrace on the ground floor, the shared kitchen and the play area are also among the key elements cited in the survey.
If you had to do it again?
The gabled facades had to be made blind (without direct views) due to the presence of lower adjoining buildings. The architect introduced a fixed opalescent bay window at each level on each gable in order to make the gable more luminous within the office plateau and to slender the gable facades from the outside. Today, in operation, we realize that these frames (non-opening) are difficult to access for cleaning.
The covered premises for parking bicycles were partitioned off from the car park by a single-leaf swing door. At the start of the construction site, on a suggestion from our investor, we installed an automatic swing door to make access to the bike room more fluid for the cyclist and his bike.

CLT superstructure (columns, beams, floors and walls)
Gros œuvre / Charpente, couverture, étanchéité
The volume of wood used for this construction is significant (nearly 30 m3) and constitutes a real carbon sink for the environmental performance of the building.
Second œuvre / Revêtements de sol
The false floor comes from a resource reconditioned by MOBIUS.
BSO differentiated solar protections / blinds
Second œuvre / Menuiseries extérieures
The reflection on the types of concealment between external rolling venetian blind and external blinds has also been pushed to the carbon weight level. This is why the use of external rolling venetian blind was proposed on the west facade, and exterior blinds on the east facade.

Quality of life and services
Wood being 12 times more insulating than concrete, the living environment suffers. The environmental qualities of wood go so far as to affect the health of the occupants, since wood promotes better indoor air quality thanks to its hygrothermal buffer properties. This material also provides significant acoustic insulation promoting the comfort of the occupants.

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)Wood construction, reuse and biosourced materials
This tertiary building, with six levels, is an innovative construction, made of 70% wood construction and biosourced materials. In addition to gains in the embodied energy of the structure, this structural bias ensures biogenic carbon storage of more than 500 T of CO2 equivalent. Aware that any new material generates additional energy and resource consumption, the desire to implement a circular economy approach on the project also quickly emerged. The use of raised floor slabs from re-use saves 100 tons of CO2 equivalent .Developer, architect, ecologist: all united around low carbon
The low-carbon design process requires iterative work between the architect and the design offices to identify upstream the positions to be prioritized at each phase of the project. In particular, the choice of sunscreens was the subject of a comparative analysis to find the best compromise between summer comfort and carbon impact. Comfort and the place of living things in the Pluriel operation have not been forgotten: an indoor air quality plan has been developed and the outdoor facilities have taken into account the recommendations of an ecologist to promote micro-habitats for fauna and flora.
“In addition to the environmental and energy performance of wood, our architectural work consisted in demonstrating the qualities of atmosphere, warmth and color that this material brings to the office space. It was therefore a question of getting out of the classic plan of the false ceiling of offices which covers the floor and leaving “free” the wooden floor which becomes the ennobled ceiling of the workspace” specifies Régis Gachon, architect of Pluriel.
