ENGIE has the ambition to build a 136,000 m² eco-site by 2023 to illustrate its expertise in the zero carbon transition. Located right in the heart of La Garenne-Colombes, 700 m from the current head office and next to the new La Folie station, served by the RER E line, it will group together a large number of employees from Île-de-France on one site, promoting cooperation, cross-functional working, and open-mindedness. Powered by an energy mix made exclusively of renewable energies, the eco-site will be a showcase for the innovative solutions that ENGIE is developing for its clients.

The energy mix for supplying the site with heating, cooling and electricity will combine:
Geothermal energy (optimised to meet between 70 and 90% of the site's heating and cooling requirements);
Solar panels;
Biomethane boilers;
Power storage facilities;
Smart grid and blockchain technology.

As real evidence of the Group's commitment to the zero-carbon transition as a service, this integrated solution combining renewable energies and digital technologies has been designed to be economically efficient and replicable. The eco-site will therefore need to meet the requirements of the strictest environmental and biodiversity certification: HQE Excellent, BREEAM Excellent, E+C-, BiodiverCity, etc.

A 6000 m² core area has been designed by the building’s architects and project managers as a multi-functional, unifying space. The Core will be a hybrid, bubbling area in which employees will be able to move around and is designed to inspire them to embrace new professional practices, such as incubation, meetings, ideation, discovery, events, etc.

The innovative building will also showcase the ENGIE Group's expertise in demonstration areas that are modular and scalable.

Project key figures:
136,000 m²
10,000 m² of terraces
9000 employees and partners
2 hectares of park
Core: 6000 m² for creation and innovation

Future project phases:
2020: laying of the cornerstone
2023: delivery of the buildings in phases
2023/2024: relocation in waves
