Field of activity: Research department - Engineering


The Franck Boutté Consultants agency is a leader and reference in the fields of environmental design and engineering and sustainable development, applied to buildings, neighbourhoods, towns and territories.
It covers a wide range of disciplines and skills (bioclimatism and passive strategies, comfort, ambiences, health, management and optimisation of resources, energy, water, design and optimisation of envelopes, natural ventilation, advanced modelling and simulation, development of renewable energies, carbon and LCA approach, French and foreign energy and environmental certifications, etc.) and operates on all scales, from the material to the territory.
The agency, which brings together engineers, architects and urban planners, often with hybrid profiles, has a total of 26 employees, spread between Paris, Bordeaux and Nantes. Its holistic philosophy, a crossroads between intellectual tools, a very wide range of digital tools (3D modelling, digital mock-up and BIM, advanced simulation in energy and climate, comfort, light, aeraulics, etc.) and experimental procedures (development of methods and tools) enables it to respond to all environmental issues, on the scale of buildings and urban organisations, by proposing a large number of innovations and giving an important place to R&D.
