Further information

Irrigo will be built using the digital model in 3D FullBIM developed by GA Smart Building which provides, at each stage of the project, a unique level of knowledge of buildings.

With 16,300 m² of new offices for rent in an 8-storey building, Irrigo, alongside Luminem, will become part of the Ourcq Canal Ecocity.

This ambitious urban development project will cover 20 hectares: 140,000 m² of offices, 7,000 m² of local shops, 1,380 housing units, 8,000 m² of public facilities and 20,000 m² of public spaces.

Designed by Leclercq Associés, the Irrigo office building, created jointly with BNP Paribas Real Estate, sold to Anacap Financial Partners (Anacap) and DEA Capital Real Estate, is currently for rent.

Office floors available for rent

Ideally located next to line 5 of the Parisian metro (Raymond Queneau station), Irrigo will also benefit from fast access to the ring road and to the A3, A86 and A1 motorways. A cycling path near the building provides access to Paris via Bassin de la Villette. By 2025, a new interchange hub will add to the options for getting to Irrigo with the T Zen 3, the Tangentielle Nord station and Line 15 of the Grand Paris Express.

An ideal geographical location for a site where construction began in January 2020, with delivery just 21 months later, thanks to GA Smart Building’s off-site construction approach.

Close to the Luminem office building, which has been occupied since the autumn of 2017, the Irrigo office building, with its elegant façades of concrete, aluminium and glass, decorated with many balconies, bears the contemporary architectural hallmark of the Leclercq Associés agency.

Aesthetics dedicated to well-being at work

With a lively ground floor, numerous terraces and balconies, small green spaces provided for employees to enjoy their breaks outside, Irrigo places great importance on nature and visual comfort. Because productivity and well-being go hand in hand, particular care has been given to the work environment and the interior decoration created by Philippe Mirailler of JTPM Architecture (Juan Trindade).

If the glass curtains walls provide natural lighting, there are excellent panoramic views from some façades. This focus on opening out toward the outside is emphasised by the stairs and the landings, glazed on both sides, providing an unrivalled view of the canal on one side, and the green spaces below the Romainville plateau on the other side.

Offices for rent that incorporate GA Smart Building high-tech processes

In terms of equipment, the Irrigo office building for rent will benefit from GA Smart Building standards, notably with its breathable double-skin façade integrating the processing of air, triple glazing and motorised blinds. Controlled by Galaxy Pilot®, its Centralised Technical Management system with Artificial Intelligence, the Irrigo office building will optimise energy performance without ever losing sight of the expected comfort of use.

Irrigo will also have toilet blocks built off-site in the French plants of Ossabois, a company specialising in wooden modular construction and a subsidiary of GA Smart Building. This innovation is the result of synergies currently being created between GA Smart Building and Ossabois. It allows both the carbon impact and the timescales to be reduced, but also to obtain a consistency of quality and finish that only industrial production allows.

From the design phase, Irrigo was shaped by strong environmental ambitions, aiming for HQE® “High Performance”, BREEAM® “Excellent” and E+C- (Positive Energy & Carbon Reduction) certification
