Energy efficiency: a challenge on the duration


The energy performance of buildings is a major challenge in the combat against climate change, since buildings alone generate 40% of greenhouse gas emissions. Implementation of lowconsumption infrastructure became the rule in France starting in 2011. It has led to a change in construction models with the growing weight of technical equipment, both for building refurbishment and construction projects.


In 2012, Control of energy demand is a central issue in construction and renovation of buildings and will continue to support the market. The new thermal regulations will require global expertise associating experts in construction and energy. Hence, projects will increasingly be awarded to companies that are capable of meeting their customers’ needs as general contractor or provider of macro-works packages.


In the service sector, VINCI Energies offers customers its expertise in energy networks, HVAC, fire protection, plumbing and centralised building management systems. VINCI Energies answers their demands for building management and energy efficiency.


VINCI Facilities, which specialises in services related to buildings and their users, handles multi-technical maintenance and facility management. With VINCI Facilities, VINCI Energies has all the strengths it needs to meet the market’s requirements, in line with the strategy adopted by VINCI: design, implement, operate and maintain its customers’ facilities, in a genuine, long-term partnership.


Signature of major contracts in 2011


Cegelec is involved in the project to build the future nato headquarters in Brussels (Belgium).


Brisk trends in the electrical sector, a recovery in thermal activity and the increasing weight of contracts organised in macro-works packages allowed VINCI Energies to perform in line with its expectations in 2011.
Major contracts were signed and/or partly completed during the year in synergy with VINCI Construction France, such as the descartes tower in La Défense, SFR’s head office in Saint-Denis, The Peninsula luxury hotel in Paris and the future Nantes Airport.


Preparation for the European Football Cup in 2016 gave VINCI Energies the opportunity to work in engineering and implementation for the future Nice and Nanterre stadiums.


The Group reaffirmed its presence in the hospital sector in France (Creil, Toulouse, Lyon, Fort-de-France, Noumea) and also in Portugal, Sweden and Belgium. Also in Belgium, Cegelec is responsible for all electricity and HVAC systems for the Brussels Headquarters of NATO and the European Union.

VINCI Energies’ mission is not confined solely to fitting out service sector buildings. The rollout of VINCI Facilities in 2011 has provided customers with a platform that can support the management of their property assets over the long term, as shown by its involvement alongside VINCI’s Construction and Concession business lines in the PPPs for the Nice and Bordeaux stadiums. As a coordinator and supplier of global solutions, VINCI Facilities also has the capacity to take on multi-site and multi-country contracts.


It owes this positioning to its close-knit network of business units and their local roots, which corresponds to the expectations of a growing number of customers, including EDF, Société Générale and Unisys – the latter will be rolling out global FM in 15 countries.
In Morocco, acquisition of a stake in Exprom alongside Cegelec Morocco has led to creation of the leading Facility Management player in this country, confirming VINCI Facilities’ determination to broaden its scope of action.
