A first in France

The EOS building, delivered in 2009, is one of the largest set of offices to be certified 'HQE Construction' in the Paris region. The project, jointly initiated by the owner, Generali Real Estate, and the main lessee, Microsoft France, has been accompanied by Egis, which enabled them to obtain the 'HQE Exploitation®' and 'BREEAM in Use' certifications thanks to its Project Management Assistance work.

Such a joint project, supported by the owner and the main lessee of a building with a view to improving its environmental performances, is a first in France.

EOS obtains a dual 'HQE' certification

The operating teams, advised by Egis, had been working for almost 3 years on improving the environmental performances of the site and have been able to generate energy savings of more than 25%, proportionally to the gradual increase in the occupancy of the building.

Today, the teams have obtained a dual certification in Use by passing the Anglo-Saxon certification 'BREEAM in Use' with a score of 'GOOD' for each of the 3 topics it covers: Asset Performance, Building Management, and Organisational.

This certification testifies to the excellent quality of the ecological and sustainable management and operation of this real estate complex.
