The agency Franck Boutté Consultants is a leader and authority in the fields of environmental engineering and design and sustainable development, applied to buildings, districts, towns and land. It covers a large range of disciplines and skills (bioclimatology and passive strategies, comfort, atmospheres, health, management and improvement of resources, energy, water, design and improvement of building envelopes, natural ventilation, advanced modelling and simulation, encouraging renewable energies, carbon policy and LCA, French and overseas environmental and energy certifications, energy strategies, etc.) and is involved in all stages, from materials to land. The agency employs engineers, architects, and urban planners, often with varied backgrounds, with a total of 26 employees spread between Paris, Bordeaux and Nantes.  Its holistic philosophy is based on intellectual tools, a huge range of digital tools (3D modelling, digital mock-ups and BIM, advanced energy and climate simulations, comfort, lighting, ventilation, etc.) and experimental procedures (development of methods and tools). This allows it to address all environmental issues for both buildings and urban organisations, by proposing a significant number of innovations and by emphasising R&D.

55000 hectares for nature / Agence TER

Operation This competitive dialogue, coming out of the "50,000 dwellings on public transport routes" programme sets out to draw up enhancement strategies to put nature at the heart of the metropolitan project in the area of the Urban Community of Bordeaux

Mission To develop a "nature strategy" for the metropolitan area of Bordeaux and address five issues identified in the area:how to make nature bring together this densely populated city; what value to place on large natural spaces; what use to make of floodplains and wetlands; can the area’s identity stand out from the green and blue belt infrastructure; lastly, how to manage time on brownfields and areas that are undergoing change.

Studies Reading and analysis of three forms of presence of nature around Bordeaux:ecological nature for a city that stands up in the face of climate change and is generating biocapacity; social nature, the source of social civility and connections; lastly, economic nature that creates resources for the metropolis.Implementation of an action strategy based on the principle of 1 = 1 + 1; each building project has its own nature project and is set out in the form of operational tools adapted to the diversity of metropolitan area contexts.

Innovation Proposal for an innovative financing operation for redeveloping nature by way of building projects:the natural stock exchange
