Eiffage Énergie carries out electrical work on the brand-new Pouilley-les-Vignes school complex

The town of Pouilley-les-Vignes (Doubs) has launched a call for tenders to build an environmentally-friendly school complex. Eiffage Énergie has been selected to take part in the project, and will carry out the electrical work on this Positive Energy Building (BEPOS)

The school complex, comprising pre-school and primary school buildings, was designed by architects Archi+Tech on a 100% wooden structure. Our teams are already at work on the building's electricity, notably in the school canteen kitchen which requires a 20 kW power supply when in use. The electrical installations are directly connected to a roof equipped with 100 kW solar PV panels and can thus operate in full autonomy. The power generated should ensure the building's energy self-sufficiency and even enable the resale of excess supply. 

Our teams will fit two meters (corresponding to the EDF corporate rate) and four electrical cabinets, together with a Type 4 fire alarm system. They are also to install smart LED lighting throughout the building, and a school bell system linked to a clock to regulate pupil and staff schedules.  

Our teams of electricians must also construct a "starry sky" with optical fibre to decorate the rest room in this new-generation school complex. 

The works began in January 2017 and are scheduled for completion in February 2018.
