Office building in Malakoff

Through a marketer/investor meeting led by Safran in 2018, GA Smart Building and Batipart began work on a 22,000 m2 office building in Malakoff on boulevard Charles de Gaulle. Anticipated delivery is pre-end 2021, the architect is Studios Architecture. The GA Group covers full BIM design and construction management, structural element, facade, and comfort fitting fabrication in our factories, up through on-site assembly.


What were the challenges encountered that contributed to the project's success?

Contemporary and durable, the building was designed by the GA teams with a biophilic approach. It offers users balconies with vegetation, beautiful terraces adorned with an urban garden and a manicured garden. Along with its high performance HQE certification and Effinergie + energy efficient qualification, the future Safran offices in Malakoff now target the "Weil" gold-level label. The project must be completed in record time, with minimal environmental impact of the worksite and effluviant pollution, even though the site is very constrained within a high density neighborhood. Off-site construction proposed by GA is critical for this project.
