For BARJANE and its clients, the energy performance of buildings and associated costs represent a major challenge.
BARJANE works in two directions to respond to these expectations :• Systems enabling energy savings
• The performance of energy producing systems
Reducing consumptionFollowing the directions of the Grenelle environmental roundtable and the thermal regulations ( RT 2005 and RT 2012 for offices), the objective for BARJANE is to reduce the energy consumption of its buildings.
In addition to the bioclimatic design of the buildings, BARJANE works to maximise the use of natural light for the workspaces, using shades to limit glare and overheating. Equally important efforts are made on isolation of the construction and even on the installation of equipment which has better energy efficiency (economy lighting, heat pumps…)
Finally, BARJANE is committed to reducing light pollution generated by its installations and has written a Lighting Charter which is applied to all its operations.
While maintaining compatibility with the professional requirements of logistics operators, the objectives of the Lighting Charter are :
Manage external lighting, inviting energy efficient practices
Minimise light pollution
Improve the comfort of use, safety and - in a more general sense - the environment while reducing energy expenditure
Energy productionElsewhere, BARJANE puts the roofs of its buildings to work, from initial design by integrating photovoltaic plants producing their own energy.
The first photovoltaic plant developed by BARJANE was connected to the public electricity distribution network in July 2010. This installation, on the roof of the freight forwarding building operated by our client GLS at the Bréguières logistics park, produces more electricity that GLS’s entire electricity consumption between the months of May and September every year.
The most important plant designed, installed and managed by BARJANE is located on the roof of the logistics platform delivered to DAHER and EUROCOPTER at Marignane. The plant installation has a power of 1.1 MWc, and is the largest photovoltaic plant on the roof of a building in the PACA region.
