Construction industries and offsite renovations

Committed for many years in energy transition and building renovation, we assist you on the emerging offsite construction market.

This trend towards industrialization, boosted by new forms of cooperation and by the spreading of digital technologies, is shaping the building of tomorrow. Components are remotely manufactured after having been specifically designed for efficient assembly on a building site, accelerating the construction process and reducing nuisances.

It is now time to secure the benefits and opportunities of these innovations created in the workshop from the collaboration between designers and producers. We need to allow funding from the beginning of the study phase for solutions that will support employment, circular economy and energy performance.

These new buildings will be progressively connected to send data, which will have to be processed adequately. The combination of our advanced expertise in real estate, energy performance, IP-IT and industrial contracts led us to draft new contract models ("CORELIAS") in order to meet the new challenges in a pragmatic way.

Power infrastructure management / Procurement Transactions

Optimise the management and competitiveness of your energy assets

Our teams support manufacturers in this sector, both as consultancy and in litigation, in developing their power production, and provide advice on managing production and optimising consumption. We have developed special expertise in the settlement of disputes before the National Regulatory Commission of Energy (CRE).

With the largest team on this market, our firm can support you with projects of all sizes, from large offshore wind farms to combined cycle gas plants, both in France and abroad.

Land acquisition/public land deeds

As an active player in the renewable energy sector, we work regularly with producers and project sponsors, managing the various elements of land acquisition and lease negotiations, both during the project development phase (memoranda of agreement) and operations (long-term leases, construction leases, easements, volume divisions).

Obligation to purchase/ public contract transactions

Our teams help you optimise the management of your power infrastructure, manage and develop your output (reduction, internal consumption), and sell your power output on the spot market or to aggregators, manufacturers or business centres. We also regularly intervene in the drafting and negotiation of mandates and contracts for purchasers under obligation to purchase or on public contracts.

Energy efficiency

We have a proven track record in controlling energy demand: we advise industrial groups on energy saving certificates, energy performance, and heating and cooling systems. The firm is also active in the development and management of electric vehicle fleets

Regulations, liability

We advise and defend energy companies in operating their plants, and renovating and renewing their production facilities. We have developed specific expertise in the repowering and decommissioning of power production facilities (additional orders, financial guarantees, etc.). We also work with operators during liability hearings before the courts.

Acknowledged as among the best industrial risk and product liability specialists, our team supports major French and international groups operating in the power generation sector in the areas of environmental impact and neighbourhood disturbances related to energy projects, both in pre-litigation and litigation
