Groupama launches construction with Vinci of Total’s new head office in Paris
Groupama Group and Total signed an off-plan lease on 14 March 2020 covering the construction of The Link, Total's new head office in Paris La Défense. The project was designed by architects Pca-Stream for Groupama, owner of the site, and will be built by Vinci, through subsidiary Vinci Construction France.
At the end of the works and fitting out, scheduled to take five years, Total will take delivery of the building and lease The Link for a 12-year renewable period.
Located in the Michelet district of Paris La Défense, The Link comprises two towers connected over 30 storeys by green walkways. The 50-storey "Arche" wing will rise 228 metres above the forecourt; the 35-storey "Seine" wing will be 165 metres high. They will share a common three-storey base between the urban boulevard and forecourt. The walkways will enable the creation of 3, 000 sq. metre platforms, 6, 000 sq. metres in duplex, all floors being connected in pairs by large, open and easy-to-access staircases. Employees will have 130, 000 sq. metres of office, restaurant, co-working and relaxation areas designed to promote an improved quality of well-being at work and collective efficiency.
The Link will have the highest level of environmental certification (HQE Exceptionnel), guaranteeing the best standards in energy efficiency, heating and acoustics. All workstations will benefit from natural daylight and 25% of the complex's energy needs for lighting will be provided by its photovoltaic façade. The works will be executed in compliance with the Property and Construction Sector's Circular Economy Charter, signed by Groupama Immobilier and VINCI Construction France.
