Energy transition and responsible housing at the heart of ACTIS’ rehabilitation project
Making the rehabilitation of buildings a social project in the service of the energy transition is the approach used by Actis, the leading landlord in the Grenoble area, through its rehabilitation project of the Tours Mistral in Grenoble. The company highlighted these objectives during a site visit organised as part of the City-zen Days.
A whole delegation composed of various nationalities and the representative of the European Commission embarked on the discovery of this project to rehabilitate the three towers located on Avenue Rhin et Danube in Grenoble. Participants were able to attend a presentation organized by ACTIS detailing the work in progress, the assessments currently being conducted on energy consumption and the relationship with tenants during the work. It was followed by a site visit.
Support and advice are at the heart of the social landlord’s action, who provided residents with a model home, presented during the visit. Designed with an educational perspective, this apartment is a demonstration of the work to come in other housing. Residents can learn about the use of the equipment and the potential energy savings to be made.
This major project, which represents an investment of more than 10 million euros, involves nearly 200 housing units spread over the three towers. The latter will be completely insulated, the joinery will be replaced and the hall and building surroundings will be completely redesigned to provide comfort and safety.
