In Bordeaux, the Tebio project obtains the first unassigned permit
Led by the Elithis group and the Canal architecture workshop, the Tebio project obtained the first unassigned permit. This program is located in the district of Ars, in Bordeaux, on the Operation of National Interest Bordeaux Euratlantique. It is a building of nearly 4,500 m² “without destination, demonstrator of reversibility and positive energy balance”.
The project consists of anticipating mutations and changes in the use of a building, not by programming them but by facilitating them in order to reduce adaptations and transformation costs as much as possible in the future, explain the Elithis group and the Canal architecture workshop. “Based on a series of simple construction principles making possible a plurality of assignments, we propose the design of a reversible program which allows the future change of destination at little cost, while increasing the use value of the habitats. : better ceiling height, typological diversity, quality of housing, load shedding room, outdoor spaces… »
“In order to design and build buildings whose floors and facades can receive several assignments, it is also a question of derogating from the assignment clause of the building permit as well as from the various provisions based on them. Finally, it is a question of defining an ownership model (single investor) and lease terms capable of allowing the desired scalability”, add the two actors.
Thus, the technical and regulatory design was carried out from the outset in close partnership between Elithis, Canal architecture, State services and EPA Bordeaux Euratlantique.
For Valérie Lasek, Managing Director of Bordeaux Euratlantique, this authorization is the result of “long-term collaborative work, with the instructing departments and all the project stakeholders. From the questions raised about taxation, permit management and fire safety in particular, to the experimental dimension, obtaining the building permit is a promise for other projects and for the resilient and sustainable city. »
“It would not have been possible to innovate if we had not initially freed ourselves from the standards and regulations in force”, adds Thierry Bièvre, President of the Elithis group. “Our engineers imagined and then explored what would be most beneficial to meet both the challenges of climate change and the need to serve high quality of use to involve future tenants as actors in energy transition and decarbonization. By paving the way, with Patrick Rubin and our partners, we have enabled the instructor services to rethink current models and create a breach for organic habitat, this transformable and flexible habitat that can accommodate all forms of use over several life cycles. . »
“Reversible design (so as not to destroy any more) means anticipating the evolution of a building even before its construction, in order to reduce adaptations and their costs as much as possible during its future transformation”, adds Patrick Rubin, Canal architecture .
