In conjunction with COP 24: Schneider Electric’s Technology Park, created by GA Smart Building, was commended in the «Smart Building» category at the 2018 Green Solutions Awards

06.12.2018

Yesterday evening, Thursday 6 December, Construction21 announced the international winners of the 2018 Green Solutions Awards, at the COP 24 in Katowice, Poland.

Contributing to the fight against climate change, the competition highlights the most sustainable and innovative building work in terms of environmental performance. Last 20 September, the Schneider Electric Technopôle in Grenoble was recognised in the “Smart Building” category of the Green Solutions Awards, winning at the French level, and qualifying, along with six other winners, for the international final that took place yesterday in Katowice (Poland), at COP 24.

The Technopôle came away with an honourable mention in the “Smart Building” category

Under the aegis of Construction21, the media of the sustainable building segment, a jury of experts came together to identify the best of the best candidates, carefully reviewing the smart functions offered by each building: lighting management, roller shutters and heating, consumption monitoring, mobile application specially for employees, etc.

After being commended at the French level, the Grenoble Technopôle of Schneider Electric — designed by the Arche 5 Architectes group — was awarded an honourable mention in the “Smart Building” category for end-to-end management of energy equipment, air comfort and maximised offices. This exemplary, so-called “Smart Grid ready” and already LEED Platinum accredited building, puts to work two key Group technologies — EcoStruxure for buildings and EcoStruxure Grid — to ensure that final consumption is below 45kWh per year and per m². This makes the Technopôle not only an outstanding performer, but also smart building capable of optimising user consumption as data are received.

A working relationship with efficiency as its foundation

It was through a call for tenders by Schneider Electric, one of the world’s experts in energy management and automation, that GA Smart Building gained the privilege of working on this development contract. The fruit of 14 months of building work with the assistance of FullBIM, the Technopôle is to ultimately become the commercial showcase of Schneider Electric, a true “living-laboratory” for its 1,000 staff.
