Activities

Bénefficience’s teams grant a lot of importance to the choice of methods and tools to support all the projects in a structured and suitable way. Within this prospect, Bénefficience has developed its activity around 4 poles of competences and fields of expertise.

 

Buildings environmental quality

As a help and support to construction management, Bénefficience’s teams have the required technical and regulatory skills plus the knowledge in project management to assist its clients all along their approach  

Office buildings :

  • HQE certification
  • BREEAM ® certification      
  • LEED ® certification
  • PEQA label

Residential buildings :

  • BBC label
  • H&E certification

Bénefficience also intervenes in operations that do not need certification in the field of offices and housing.

 

Lateral Management of energy performance

With Lateral Management in Energy Performance (LMEP), Bénefficience “coaches” and helps along its clients from the programming to the delivery of the works (up to 5 years after the building has been delivered or more depending on the projects).

This management system which is totally new and efficient has been invented by Bénefficience during the achievement of the Tour Elithis in Dijon. This system of management enables to guarantee to provide energy performance from the programming of the building until it is used by the users while making all this possible without any additional cost.

The role of the energy performance manager is to convey this harnessed cost energy performance all along the project and to make sure that the approach is relevant through the various stages of the building’s lifecycle:

  • Design
  • Achievement
  • Exploitation
  • Use
  • Renovation

So as to guarantee the best interaction between the various building professions, Bénefficience’s engineers and researchers, in addition to the Energy Performance Manager, will put at the disposal of the clients, all along the project, experts that are specialized in various fields.  

 

Energy audit

Bénefficience’s teams  have the required skills and tools to perform adapted and structuring auditing missions :

  • Energy audit
  • Measuring and monitoring
  • Thermal regulations on existing buildings or global Thermal Regulations
  • Thermal analysis item per item  
  • Recommendations adapted to the needs (eco-behaviour, light and heavy works, French CPE (Energy Performance Contract)…))

 

Environmental engineering

Whether before the initiation of the projects or right at the core of them, Bénefficience intervenes in favour of its clients for environmental engineering missions so as to optimize the buildings performance while complying with current regulations:

  • Energy performance consulting
  • Optimisation of bioclimatic design
  • Preliminary/detailed thermal study
  • Thermal and photovoltaic feasibility study
  • Thermodynamics simulation
