Egis designs, manages and supervises construction projects of varying size in all building sectors. Whether in devising regional planning schemes, investigating the interaction of built volumes or accounting for a building’s ecological footprint, Egis has an in-depth understanding of all areas concerned by sustainable construction.
Our teams work on new constructions as well as on restructuring, rehabilitation and redefinition projects for all types of public and private buildings.
With many regional branches, Egis works by the sides of local decision-makers and uses its networked set-up to mobilise the Group’s top specialists and stimulate the exchange of creative ideas.
From the setting up a project and its initial feasibility phases through its operation and maintenance phases, Egis provides owners, architects and other project stakeholders with the advisory services and engineering expertise required to design and build projects respecting budgets and deadlines, and ensuring sustainable quality.
Green building design and energy control at the scale of a city, district or a building demand a systemic and innovative approach to services. All our subsidiaries are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Our performance and risk management system covers all aspects of the services entrusted to us.
With a structure open to new ideas and a responsible design production organization, Egis favours and encourages individual creativity working for the collective good of projects.
The on-going investment in R&D has led to the development of simulation tools that can predict the behaviour of buildings in terms of heat gain and energy loss and calculate the ecological footprint on a city and regional scale.
Design and production tools, such as Building Information Modelling softs, are on hand for all our projects and enrich the collaborative project management system we make available to all our partners throughout the construction process.
Our engineers and architects constantly work towards improving their design methods to minimise the environmental footprint of constructions. They excelin managing energy and water consumption, in selecting ecological, local and sound materials, in the harmonious insertion of built volumes into natural or agricultural settings, in reducing pollution levels and other nuisances, etc..
Although the renewal rate of building stock in France is less than 1% a year, these ambitions are not just applicable to new projects. The conversion of existing constructions, often considerable consumers of energy and land, is a crucial issue in the transition to an ecological approach.
While our buildings need to be energy efficient and intelligent, they also must be solid, functional, open and pleasant environments in which to live and work. These aspects are only achieved by involving future users and operators in the design process.
Aiming for energy sobriety, organising the capacity of buildings to adapt to climate change, minimising the environmental footprint of human activities all demand an engineering approach that is both committed and innovative as well as a highly efficient, cross discipline management system. This is the route Egis has chosen to pursue.
