ICADE HANDS OVER TECHNIP ENERGIES' NEW HEADQUARTERS, ORIGINE: NEARLY 51,000
SQ.M OF OFFICE SPACE WITH A HYBRID TIMBER-CONCRETE STRUCTURE IN NANTERRE
On March 19, 2021, Icade's CEO Olivier Wigniolle handed over the keys to
Origine, Technip Energies' new headquarters, to the company's CEO Arnaud
Located in Nanterre-Préfecture next to the Nanterre-La Folie transport hub in
Paris La Défense, Origine is an office building with amenities covering a
total floor area of 70,000 sq.m. An off-plan lease agreement for a term of over
9 years with no break option was signed with Technip Energies for the Origine
building, resulting in 80% of the new space being pre-leased three years before
This investment of nearly EUR450 million highlights Icade's expertise in
developing major office projects and the appeal of this fast-growing
Office space for Technip Energies' innovative business
Designed by Maud Caubet Architectes and Quadri Fiore Architecture, Technip
Energies' headquarters will offer employees work space tailored to their needs
in addition to a wide range of amenities: business centres, showroom, spaces
for sharing expertise, gym, company restaurant, concierge services, auditorium
and a spacious 300-sq.m terrace on the 7th floor accessible to all the teams.
A showcase that reflects Icade's low-carbon construction expertise Guggenheim
The project was designed based on bioclimatic architecture with a hybrid
timber-concrete structure, featuring geothermal energy, connection to district
heating networks, integrated photovoltaic panels, natural light and rainwater
collection systems. This energy mix will allow Technip Energies to consume 20
to 25% less energy compared to its former premises.
Origine is at the apex of Icade's low-carbon expertise and aims to achieve the
highest levels of French and international environmental certification and
labelling: E+C- label with an E2C2 rating, HQE Excellent, BBCA V3, LEED Gold
and BREEAM Excellent.
Particular attention has also been paid to nature and biodiversity within the
project, since Origine has almost 6,500 sq.m of landscaped areas (gardens,
patios, loggias, roofs, terraces, etc.).
Origine is also part of the next generation of smart buildings-designed and
developed using building information modelling (BIM) with a smart electricity
grid that manages energy storage and distribution.
A mixed-use project in Paris La Défense
Origine also meets Icade's goal to develop projects that are both mixed-use and
inclusive, in line with its Purpose. In early 2020, Icade Promotion completed
the Nouvelle Vague residential building on the same site, comprising 145
apartments, with shops and a childcare centre on the ground floor. The housing
units have been fully let.
An exemplary building in terms of inclusion
Icade has signed an agreement with the Nanterre Employment and Training Centre
(MEF) and Vinci Construction France aimed at promoting access to employment,
professional integration and skills for Nanterre residents. As a result, nearly
80,000 hours of professional integration (8% of the total hours) were performed
on the Origine and Nouvelle Vague construction sites, with 82% of the workers
"Icade is proud to hand over Origine today, one of the flagship buildings in
our portfolio, in line with our Company's Purpose, the result of the
cooperation between our property investment and property development teams.
Origine represents the best of what office real estate currently has to offer.
Being leased by a group as innovative as Technip Energies also demonstrates the
appeal of Paris La Défense." - Olivier Wigniolle, CEO of Icade
"At a time when Technip Energies is writing a new chapter in its history, we
have made it a point of honour with Icade to ensure that our new headquarters
in France reflects, through its design, composition and construction, the
leading role we play in energy transition. Our goal is to also make Origine a
workplace in tune with the times, in line with changes in the way people work
and with our DNA as engineers. This project is the result of the concerted
efforts of all the teams since 2018 to provide space on a human scale that
encourages communication, team work, conviviality, performance and innovation.
Origine is a project done by the teams, for the teams and to better serve the
teams. I would like to thank them for their active participation and infectious
enthusiasm." - Arnaud Piéton, CEO of Technip Energies.
