    Life Cycle Analysis

      50% of structural and finishing elements have environmental impact indicators according to standard EN 15804 / ISO 21930

    Water management

      For any contact with water intended for human consumption, the products are chosen have ACS (Attestation de conform sanitary confinement) and are implemented in accordance with the regulations. Air quality measurements have also been carried out to verify the water quality. The water to be distributed complies with ISO 147 standard.

    Indoor Air quality

      41% of coatings in contact with indoor air are classified A + Emissions to air


      • All living areas have access to natural light and pleasant exterior views.

      Particular attention has been given to sound insulation vis-à-vis the exterior, adjoining housing and technical equipment (ventilation and heat pump).
      The acoustic design was carried out on the basis of the relevant interior and exterior noise sources of the project.
