An €11 million investment by GE Capital Real Estate in a suburban Paris office building has reduced its energy consumption by more than 40%. Theextensive refurbishment improves reliability and reduces the overall environmental footprint – features that are attractive to today’s tenants seeking sustainable office space.
The upgrades were made at Le Prisme, a seven-story 10,000 sqm office building, centrally located in suburban Paris along one of Boulogne’s most frequented roads. They are an example of similar efforts at many GE properties to incorporate eco-friendly solutions that reduce energy costs for day-to-day building operations.
At Le Prisme, the ambitious and complex upgrade included significant energy efficiency measures such as:
New lighting scheme that leverages natural daylight and presence sensors
Energy-efficient HVAC system
Building management system that monitors temperatures and regulates climate
Incorporating sustainable practices like these allows us to remain competitive within key markets while benefiting our investors, shareholders and our tenants.
