The very first of the showcase projects created within our MULTICOMFORT programme was a new construction in Beaucouzé, France.

This beautifully designed residential space demonstrates that it’s possible to build an energy-positive, sustainable family home to 2020 standards with building solutions that exist on the market today – and in a way that delivers rapid payback on a small additional investment.

The key challenge was to build an affordable, sustainable and energy-positive home to RT 2020 standards, while also providing a high level of design and aesthetics.

The new build project in the Maine-et-Loire region used a wide range of Saint-Gobain products and solutions to successfully achieve the overall objective and meet MULTICOMFORT design standards.

 The building subsequently achieved both HQE and Céquami certification.
