Passive and low carbon nursing home : Cysoing
low carbon

The very first passive
and low carbon
nursing home in France

A multi-labelled,
wooden nursing home

Multi-labelled, this project is a real example in environmental terms. It advocates an ambitious environmental and energy approach that is fully in line with the Eiffage Group's low-carbon strategy deployed in all our businesses. The building is constructed using a mixed wood/concrete construction method: the ground floor, stairwells and lifts are made of concrete, while the rooms and floors are made of wood. The exterior facade is also in wood cladding. In addition to these natural elements, the nursing home (EHPAD) meets numerous environmental and energy certifications:

  • Passivhaus (German energy performance label for buildings)
  • NF HABITAT HQE level Excellent (label attesting to the performance of buildings in the areas of energy, the environment, health and comfort)
  • E+C-, level E3C1 (Positive Energy and Carbon Reduction Buildings)

A project
the synergies

In addition to the integration of numerous wooden elements and the title of France's first "low carbon" nursing home, the operation goes even further in its approach to environmental protection: we have integrated HVA Concept bathrooms, an Eiffage Construction brand, prefabricated off-site at our Fresnaye sur Sarthe plant and delivered directly to the site. This prefabrication shortens installation times and, above all, reduces the number of trips to and from the site and the pollution linked.

In addition to integrating these "High Added Value" bathrooms, this project encourages synergies between our Eiffage Construction entities, but also with other Group business lines: while Eiffage Energie Systèmes is responsible for the electricity, the building's maintenance will be handled by Eiffage Services, a subsidiary of Eiffage Concessions, for a period of five years.

In details…

Launched at the beginning of 2020, the works are still in full swing, with delivery scheduled for the summer of 2021. Located to the south of Lille, in Cysoing, "les Résidences de la Pévèle" in fact brings together the former nursing homes of Templeuve and Cysoing, another synergy of this operation! It includes the construction of 88 rooms on 2 floors and more than 5,000sqm, divided between :

  • 1 accommodation centre with 4 living units of 60 beds each
  • 1 Alzheimer's centre with 2 ground floor living units with 28 beds

Conceived by architects Paindavoine Parmentier and GO Architects, the project includes noble materials, especially wood, warm and elegant, with shades of blue-green and a PVC floor reminiscent of parquet. Our teams also used Building Information Modeling (BIM), an intelligent process of participatory work using 3D digital models.

Briefly :

  • France's first low carbon nursing home thanks to wood, off-site manufacturing, environmental and energy certifications
  • Project in synergy with various Eiffage business lines: Eiffage Construction (including HVA Concept), Eiffage Energie Systèmes, Eiffage Concessions (through Eiffage Services)
  • Designed by architects Paindavoine Parmentier and GO Architects, it has 88 rooms divided between an accommodation centre and an Alzheimer's centre.
  • Innovative and digital with the use of BIM
  • Scheduled delivery in the summer of 2021 to "Les Résidences de la Pévèle".
