12.08.2014

The AMAZON operation in Lauwin-Planque was awarded the VERY GOOD rating of the BREEAM international 2009 certification.

This operation is the first logistics platform in France to achieve this rating, i.e. "Very Good", which requires achieving at least 55% of the BREEAM credits available.

Each of the BREEAM certification's 9 themes were taken into account during the design as well as the construction phase of the operation, i.e.:

  • Operation management monitoring,
  • Health and well-being of the occupants,
  • Energy efficiency,
  • Optimisation of environmentally-friendly transport
  • Water management,
  • Optimised choice of materials,
  • Waste management,
  • Biodiversity preservation,
  • Pollution management.

Thanks to further efforts relating to the use of low-carbon technologies, the monitoring of water consumption and the achievement of ambitious construction waste sorting objectives, the project obtained 3 extra innovation credits.

Significant work was undertaken to guarantee thermal insulation and high air permeability, exceeding the regulatory requirements.
