Given the overall landscaping and urban characteristics, the construction of the new eco-sewage water treatment plant in Saclas aims to integrate itself into a sensitive, natural environmental setting. Through a planted entrance the plant aim to conserve a façade near river Juine by eco-designing a building complex opened to the public close to an aquatic garden and a wetland.
Treated HQE® targets:
Target 1: Harmonious relation of the buildings with their immediate environment
The project favors a low construction impact in regards to residents nearby. It also shows concern for site integration into a sensitive natural area by using better density and discretion of materials than the previous installation.
Target 2: Integrated choices for construction procediors
Constructive choices for material durability and adaptability.
Constructive choices for easy material maintenance.
Choice of construction products to limit impact on the environment and to help to provide a comfortable atmosphere (hydrothermal, visual, acoustic and olfactory)
Target 4: Energy control
Reduce energy requirements with a sound architectural design. Improve overall shell aptitude to limit heat loss and reduce energy needs in the summer and winter.
Reduce primary energy consumption and related pollutions (heating, ventilation, lightning…)
Target 5: Water management
Infiltration of streaming water via a planted basin.
Reducing water proof areas with organic roof.
Reducing water proof areas by choosing road coverings made of evergreen type organic hollow-core slabs.
