Research & Development
Innovation is part and parcel of our DNA
For Elithis, its vision of innovation is not only restricted to technological innovation. It goes without saying that the research and the implementation of new technical and technological solutions are fully encompassed in our know-how. Innovation is also present within our organisation and our management.
Each collaborator of Elithis Group has the potential to become a creator and an inventor. The key factor lies in exploration. Since we consider each project as a unique project, it is essential to gear our reflection towards a bioclimatic concept: to identify the location, the environment and the end use of the building so as to provide tailored solutions. This capacity of adapting and projecting ourselves towards the life of the building constructs our expertise every day.
This attention paid to the use and to the end users over the lifespan of the buildings to which we collaborate represents a new dimension in the world of engineering. This aspect is forcing itself upon all of us with the emergence of an obligation to perform as regards energy consumption. However, all those who looked into this issue of obligation to perform know that the behaviour of the users and of the tenants is of paramount importance.
At Elithis, we have identified this potential of energy saving for a long time. Since 2006, we have initiated the creation of a Research and Development department in Human and Social Sciences so as to integrate a behavioural and sociological dimension within studies on most performing buildings. Pragmatism also consists in being aware that technology does not solve everything and that the human factor becomes essential again, that is to say that engineering, however fundamentally technical it must remain, cannot leave aside the human factor without overlooking its mission.
