H2CO: streamlined costs and low environmental impact

H2CO is an affordable, efficient and comfort-focused housing concept with limited environmental impact that strikes a balance between collective and mid-range standards. The H2CO solution is a popular choice for design-build projects for social housing providers. Features include:

  • Double-exposure apartments with balconies that provide lots of natural light and visual comfort, thereby ensuring limited energy consumption.
  • Access to units provided by external stairwells (there are no lifts), which helps to curb maintenance fees and costs by reducing communal space.

H2CO also enables reduced turnaround times. The construction of a 50-unit development takes just 8 months using smart modular techniques, compared to 13 months using traditional processes.

EcoEco: high-performance cost savings

A pragmatic approach to industrial-scale housing that combines high performance and qualitative features that answer the needs of first-time home buyers as well as social housing providers. EcoEco concept benefits include:

  • Modular design and flexible surface areas ranging from two-room to five-room units, which enable a scalable offering and mixed developments.
  • Cost control based on Eiffage Construction’s best practices for industry, including mass production of structural elements.

Flexi+: 100% adaptable

Designed to satisfy the most stringent regulatory requirements in terms of size and surroundings, the Flexi+ concept enables the construction of variable-height buildings that offer both comfort and elegance.

  • Structured around a single central axis, Flexi+ can be adapted to all types of landscape, even hilly terrain, by reducing the need for levelling work and optimising available space, not only for the entire building but also for each housing unit.
  • Its extensive modularity offers solutions that can be scaled to buildings of all sizes, in terms of both height and proportions.
Collective housing concept
The Flexi+ concept can accommodate all landscape restrictions.

Scalable housing

The housing needs of owners and renters can change over time as a result of issues such as family breakdowns, the need to care for senior family members, financial considerations, distance working and cohabitation.

Eiffage Construction has devised a cost-effective solution that allows occupants to scale housing to new circumstances without having to move home.

A modular room makes it possible to adapt an apartment to a range of needs over time while maintaining a separate space.

  • The spare room. Connected to adjacent units, these rooms benefit from a separate entrance and can be used as office space or as an independent module for a child or student. They are available in a range of sizes (9 m², 14 m² or 18 m2) and can also be shared, rented or sold as separate studio apartments.
  • Modular partitioning. In line with the changing needs of occupants, partitions can be installed to free up extra space that can be rented out or sold off without requiring large-scale renovation work.
  • The intergenerational room. A variation on the spare room, this space is designed to make it easier to care for a dependent family member at home.
