PAREF and GA PROMOTION to develop “le Gaïa”,
an 11,000 m² HQE/BBC office building in Nanterre


PAREF and GA PROMOTION have teamed up to launch the construction of “le Gaïa”, a building with a usable surface area of 11,000 m² located in Nanterre, in close proximity to La Défense and Puteaux. This joint project has been launched speculatively in response to a shortage, identified in this area, of high quality offices which are certified and guaranteed with a low energy rating. The building is to be delivered by July 2013.

Le Gaïa, designed by architects' studio Atelier 115 (Ion Enescu), will be ideally located 3 minutes from public transport at Grande Arche de la Défense and 10 minutes from Place de l'Etoile.

With excellent connection to La Défense business district, the building will provide the 1,300 companies located in close proximity with a highly competitive non-high-rise alternative for their expansion projects.

Embodiment of the sustainable development policy initiated by the City of Nanterre, Le Gaïa has been designed with a genuine desire to reduce its ecological footprint. It will be built by GA Entreprise, acting as general contractor and will therefore benefit from all of GA's construction processes and technology The solutions developed to achieve HQE® (high environmental quality) certification and BBC (low energy building) standards include orientation of the main building elements, increased thermal insulation, solar protection for exposed facades, GA's energy consumption guarantee, and the fact that more than 80% of office floor will benefit from direct daylight.

The 6-storey building, each storey with a surface area of between 1,240 m² and 1,800 m², is designed to accommodate one or several businesses. Either individual or open plan offices may be fitted out.

In addition to office space, the building will include a restaurant, cafeterias, reception areas, outdoor areas and gardens, which make it a pleasant place to work for the 700 people it will eventually be able to accommodate.

This development, whose investment will be borne in equal measure by the two partners, combines GA's expertise as builder-developer and that of PAREF as a property management company (SCPI/OPCI/SIIC-type funds).
