Foncière des Régions and Crédit Agricole Assurances acquired off-plan from Eiffage Immobilier, a subsidiary of Eiffage Construction and the project's developer, December 19, 2013, the future Eiffage Campus, including the existing Eiffage Construction Head Office, which is owned by both investors.
During the 2nd quarter of 2015, the Eiffage Campus will bring together the Eiffage Group's five divisions, namely Construction, Public Building Works, Energy, Metals, and Concessions, together with the holding company, i.e. 1,600 employees in total. The aim of grouping these divisions on a single site is to encourage synergies between them, as they are increasingly required to respond to turn-key tenders that call on the Group’s complementary areas of expertise.
The Eiffage Campus will include three new buildings designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the architect, on six levels (basement, ground floor and four floors) and two underground car parking levels (600 spaces) covering a usable area of 24,000 m², together with an existing 11,000 m² building and 270 parking spaces, which is Eiffage Construction's current Head Office, designed by Jean-Paul Viguier.
The employees gathered on this single site will have collaborative working areas, areas to relax and exchange ideas, and a wide range of integrated services (auditorium, restaurants, a sports room, a library, and a concierge service, etc.) as well as a huge garden.
The project intends to be exemplary from an environmental standpoint and is aiming for NF Commercial Buildings – Exception HEQ Level Approach Certification, Effinergie+ certification, and BREEAM certification. The project was designed in accordance with the Eiffage Phosphore Laboratory HQVie® principles. The gardens will account for over half of the outside space, and 50% of the roof will be green. The buildings will also be equipped with solar panels, rain water catchment systems, high-performance water-saving appliances, and reversible heated/cooled ceilings.
The acquisition of the Eiffage Campus enables Foncière des Régions and Crédit Agricole Assurances to boost their operations in this major commercial sector that is popular with key accounts.
