The Tour Alto is one of many prestigious high-rise buildings erected in La Défense and in other French cities.
The Tour Alto project contributes to the renovation of the Saisons neighbourhood of La Défense, and as such plays a part in the redevelopment and transformation of urban areas more broadly. Designed by agency IF Architectes, the Tour Alto, at 150 metres high, will offer 38 storeys of top-of-the-range offices over a total surface area of 51,000 m². Adorned with glass flakes, its façade will set it apart from similar buildings. Its unique shape flares upwards, with varying surface areas ranging from 700 m² at the bottom of the building to 1,500 m² at the top.
In addition to its innovative shape, the Tour Alto will be highly energy-efficient with its insulating double-layer façade. It will therefore be awarded HQE® “exceptional”, Wellcore shell “silver” and BREEAM® “outstanding” certifications, a first for a tower!

The end of pesticides in public parks. Since 1 January 2017, in application of the law on energy transition for green growth, local authorities may no longer use plant protection products to maintain parks, roadsides or forests.
With the increase in the circular economy and the arrival of the next Environmental Regulation (RE 2020), many solutions are being considered to reduce the energy consumption of buildings. The heat produced by data centres could, according to some, be a solution. Here is why.
