Energy-intensive building

At the heart of the EURATECHNOLOGIES district in Lille, VINCI Immobilier operates the regional headquarters of VINCI Energies.
The building called WAVE is a technological showcase that enhances the well-being of occupants and demonstrates the new uses of a Smart Building.

Sustainable development approach of the project owner

VINCI Immobilier has programmed the demonstrator building at the VINCI Energies regional headquarters

The stated intention of the spirit of the building is to highlight the new technologies adapted to the tertiary sector: IOT / Control of building facilities by smartphone or web. The user is at the center of the building design. The driving principle is "Measure to improve": Installation of sensors / actuators that allow a permanent optimization of the consumption of the frame and an optimal use of the utilities. (Ex: Activation of heating according to occupation of spaces, lighting on detection of presence and luminosity) Analysis of the interaction between occupant and frame. Free night cooling for automatic refresh of the interior. "Water Micro stop".

Architectural description

Optimum brightness by full height window. Renunciation to be air conditioned using athermic windows. Concrete in structure + brick facing. Motorized and intelligent blinds controlled according to the weather. DECK bamboo terrace planted with local species simple maintenance, which operates the link between the buildings of the program and promotes the "connections" human. Landscaped patio on the edge of the ground floor offices. Reasoned watering of green spaces. Brick local perennial. Large room with soft mobility (bike rack + electric bike station). Natural ventilation of car parks by moucharabieh. Roof in capacity to receive photovoltaic panels.

Building users opinion

Building delivered in June 2019. No feedback yet

If you had to do it again?

Basically nothing would change. Nevertheless, the lessee could be more involved upstream of the design of the program to better understand the utilities development (eg access management), renewable energy and non-planned home consumption, equipment to develop IRVE.

    • No cooling system
    • Free-cooling
    • Double flow heat exchanger
    • Solar photovoltaic
  • 10,00 %
  • 30 photovoltaic panels, mark REC reference Twin Peak 2 of 290Wc, are installed on the terrace of the building, for a total power of 8.7 kWp. The Fronius SYMO inverter is equipped with a Datamanager card for the return of information from the installation to the WEB WAVE platform developed by SBE.
    The production of these panels is re-injected onto the electrical panel in order to be fully consumed.

Smart Building

    GTB controllable via a dedicated WEB platform built with Microsoft AZURE.
    All systems described are connected to GTB:
    Smartphone access control (progressive elimination of badges)
    Photovoltaic EN self-production
    Dimmable LED lighting
    Presence, temperature and brightness sensors
    Control of the HVAC by users via their Smart Phone.
    Reservation of meeting rooms coupled with Outlook.
    Global parking management with IOT (real-time occupancy tracking) and booking coupled with Outlook.
    Measurement of energy consumption.
    IRVE intelligent.
    Reconfiguration of actuator sensors in case of re-partitioning spaces Via the WEB platform (Modularity / Flexibility)
    Use of wireless / battery-free objects. (Switches / Door Openings / Meeting Room / Lighting Room Configuration)
    Augmented Reality for visitors to the building since the reception.
    BIM operating
    Data analysis with IA. (Decrease of consumption / improvement of uses)

    Instant self-consumption via photovoltaic panels.

    The presentation to the occupants of the WEB platform for the use of building functionality has generated a lot of interest. The application will have to be simple and user-friendly.

    A strong sense of pride emerges from having a contemporary building and using the latest techniologies.

    Smart Building Energies

    Frédéric THOUOT / Chef d'entreprise


    SBE aggregates all HVAC data, CFO CFA, IT, Access and Security Security, to provide building users with a WEB / CLOUD control service for building components.

    The concept "All in one" appealed to users.
    The ease of Smartphone (dedicated App) allows a quick start of all the features of the building.

    WAGO / AUTOMATE of control of the technical organs of the building



    Second œuvre / Equipements électriques (courants forts/faibles)

    PLCs are the first part of the order of the technical organs via the WEB, and necessary for the reassembly of the DATAs necessary for the operation of the web platform WEB management of the facilities of the building.

    Microsoft AZURE




    The design of the WAVE Building Management Service WEB platform was under construction with the MICROSOFT AZURE Bricks.

    Users of the platform quickly understood that the services developed were "customized" specifically for them. It is a flexible and simple way to answer all their requests for building management.

    Central access control.



    Second œuvre / Equipements électriques (courants forts/faibles)

    The access control center of the building is piloted in WEB version, being able to associate the badges and any other system like the QR code or the smart phone.

    The multiplication of the possibilities of systems of access opening is appreciated by all (Badges, telephone, QR code). the simple management and WEB access rights is a plus that allows good management of badges that can "go astray".

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)

The WAVE building, which houses the Regional headquarters of VINCI Energies, is the result of a great collaboration between VINCI Immobilier, VINCI Energies and all the players involved in the design of this building. Imagined, thought out and realized in perfect collaboration between all the companies, integrating the technical solutions very early on, this project was carried out in an efficient way to obtain such a result.

WAVE is a SMART BUILDING dedicated to the well being of the occupants. It is simple, effective and "seamless" for users. It is labeled BREEAM Very GOOD, EFFINERGIE + and R2S for connectivity. (First building labeled Hauts de France) The tranquility that develops this workspace deserves its place in the competition SANTE CONFORT tertiary buildings. It is our first tertiary building which will allow a reasonable porosity between place of life and workplace , which responds to a demand more and more assertive users. (Tele work, flexibility of spaces, pleasure and joy of life)
The emphasis has been placed on the "natural" comfort it provides to the occupants: Brightness, geographic location, optimal acoustics, intelligent parking control, dedicated and customized building management WEB platform that was invented in partnership with Microsoft AZURE , An ENR system for the self-consumption and recharging of IRVE, A sprinkling of reasoned vegetation, management of lighting and heating according to occupation, management of workspaces according to the presence rate to optimize the M² , a particular Olfactive atmosphere, an Artistic decoration of "circulations" renewed regularly.
A WEB + SmartPhone application has been invented so that each resident can access the functionalities of the services : Parking, lighting, Thermie, reservation of spaces, status of the state of charge of electric vehicles, bike reservation within the company fleet. Finally, WAVE is designed to provide you with all the data on its operation and its evolution, in order to be able to establish its permanent "health book" and to improve its energy performance.
