Sontay is helping to create the right climate at the new Incity Tower building in Lyon, France thanks to the recent installation of sensor and measurement devices combined with Distech Controls’ products.
The office will be the first large-scale building, encompassing 40,000m², to achieve HQE (High Environmental Quality) certification in a city centre in France. The building was completed in 2015 and the Incity skyscraper is now the highest tower in Lyon, the third tallest in France. Designed for the well-being of the user, it emphasises natural light and 90% of offices are lit by daylight. It is one of the first high-rise constructions with BBC (Low Consumption Building) energy certification and a BREEAM Excellent (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) rating.
