Elioth forms a team of fourty people within the Egis group. Just as Bourbaki sought to reformulate modern mathematics, we firmly believe that ecological emergency combined with the power of computer tools naturally leads to a revolutionary re-thinking in matters of engineering approach and design practice. There is no doubt in our minds that the trilogy engineer-designer-inventor has not only a role to play but also a duty toward society and the planet [...]

The Majunga Tower : natural ventilation of a hi-rise

The Majunga Tower is slowly revealing itself in Le Moniteur magazine!

”Majunga” has the distinguishing feature of being a high-rise building operating on natural ventilation.

Photographs in this article show the openings thanks to which this type of ventilation is made possible.

Elioth had the pleasure of working on the environmental concept of the tower, developing all the environmental studies (including air flow simulations) and which are in the process of being finalized for the construction phase BREEAM certification (BREEAM Award International 2012).

Teamber by Elioth

Because we can all benefit from teamwork and as timber is at the heart of our values, Elioth launched Teamber.

International Conference on Structural Engineering

Elioth will attend the International Conference on Structural Engineering (ISCE) in Singapore the following 30th and 31st of March, to present our achievements in the geometrical / structural / envelope design of the Rennes Library and the Nice Stadium – Allianz Riviera.

Elioth at the IASS

Elioth was invited to present 2 articles for the 2013 edition of the IASS (International Association for Shells and Spatial Structures) which took place in Wroclaw, Poland, last September.

The first article which presented the last developments for Solar Mountains caught the interest of the persons working on Solar Chimneys.

The second article axed on geometrical and structural studies (global analysis + sketch details) undertaken for the glass roof of the University Library of Rennes (Arch. Bruno Gaudin) was presented to the group working on steel spatial structures.

QAI 1 – Wacken

As part of the restructuration project for the Wacken neighbourhood, the town and the Urban Community of Strasbourg decided to develop a highly multipurpose international business centre not far from the headquarters of the European parliament between the allée du Printemps and the boulevard de Dresde.

The first phase of this project comprises a construction programme of roughly 100 000 m² which includes offices, hotels and shops.

Elioth_polis, Erik Guidice Architects and Base landscapers landed the urban engineering contract for this international business centre for the part concerning environmental expertise.

Housing in Clichy Batignolles

Elioth was selected to take part in the design of the 2nd phase of the future Clichy Batignolles neighbourhood programme, unique in its scale, its ambitions and design approach.

With Elioth were also selected Fresh Architecture, Itar Architecture and Base Landscaper to design an exemplary project comprising 8 000 m² of housing and 500 m² of shops and services.

The design incorporates very strong environmental goals set down in close collaboration with the other actors/teams working on this grand project.

Inauguration of the Allianz Riviera Stadium

On Sunday 22nd September 2013, the new Nice stadium was inaugurated by the City and Nice Eco stadium in presence of Christian Estrosi, deputy Mayor of Nice and Jean-Pierre Jouyet, Managing Director of the Caisse des Dépots.

An ambitious architectural project situated in the Saint Isidore neighbourhood of Nice, the new stadium was baptized “Allianz Riviera” is a positive energy construction. It will be one of the stadiums hosting the Euro 2016.

Elioth carried out analyses to define the geometry of the stadium, the design of the wood-steel frame and the PVC and ETFE tensile fabric (40 000 m²) as well as the environmental efficiency of the structure.

The project comprises a multifunctional stadium with a seating capacity of 35 000, the National Sports Museum, 29 000 m² of completely integrated shops (shops are located under the esplanade of the stadium, the museum nestles in the North tribune), 1 300 of parking spaces 800 of which are underground and a 3-Ha landscaped park at ground level.

The frame of the stadium is made up of a tri-dimensional wood-steel frame covered with a PVC and ETFE tensile fabric and is equipped with photovoltaic panels.

The project is a forerunner in the domain of sustainable development and technical efficiencies : massive use of structural wood (3 100 m3), geothermal power for heating and cooling, natural ventilation, storm water recovery for watering the pitch and supplying water for the toilets, and implementation of a photovoltaic plant covering 8 500 m² thanks to which the stadium is eco-positive
