A showcase for Icade's low-carbon expertise and a precursor to the RE2020, Wood'Art-La Canopée is a true demonstrator of wood construction. Mixed-use, inclusive and with a reduced carbon footprint, Wood'Art-La Canopée is directly in line with Icade's raison d'être, which is to design, build, manage and invest in places where life is good.
This project aims to build a series of demonstration buildings using wood construction (Wood'Art-La Canopée), whose carbon footprint (construction and operation) is greatly reduced compared to that of a conventional building.
The Wood'Art - La Canopée building complex, located in the heart of the Cartoucherie eco-district in Toulouse (31), has a major particularity: its structure is 76% wood.
The project, which aims for a very low energy and carbon footprint (level E3C2 of the BEPOS and E+C- label) compared to a conventional construction project (steel/concrete structure), calls on local know-how, such as the local wood construction company Maître Cube in design-build with the Toulouse architecture firms Seuil Architecture and Dietrich Untertrifaller, all with bio-based and local materials (French CLT wood transformed by a French company and implemented by a company in Occitania). It participates in this sense in the structuring of the local wood industry.
The complex will eventually include a 100-room hotel, 2,750 m2 of shops at the foot of the building, a social building with 42 apartments and 95 homes, for a total floor area of more than 13,000 m2 on 10 floors. Wood'Art-La Canopée is the most advanced project of the ADIVbois-PUCA competition, which aims to present operations with a high wood component and a minimum carbon footprint.
The completion of this project will also allow Icade to develop its know-how in terms of off-site prefabrication.
Direct emissions generated by the company's activity.
Indirect emissions associated with the company's electricity and heat consumption.
Emissions induced (upstream or downstream) by the company's activities, products and/or services in its value chain.
Carbon sinks creation, (BECCS, CCU/S, …)
Emissions avoided by the activities, products and/or services in charge of the project, or by the financing of emission reduction projects.
Scope 3 - Wooden construction for the building structure (instead of a classic concrete structure)
Assuming an average weight of a "standard" building based on the C1 threshold of the E+C- label.
- The project avoided 9429 TeqCO2 VS “a standard project”
Emission removal - Carbon storage in the wood used for the structure
- Total CO2eq sequestered: 1416TeqCO2
- Building A1: 812 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1542 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference 730 kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 1720 m2, or 1256 TeqCO2 avoided
- Building A2: 779 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1523 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference of 744 kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 1270 m2, i.e. 945 TeqCO2 avoided
- Building B1: 868 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1587 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference of 719 kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 1453 m2, i.e. 1045 TeqCO2 avoided
- Building B2: 842 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1568 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference of 726kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 2399 m2, or 1741 TeqCO2 avoided
- Building B3: 829 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1491 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference of 662 kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 1158 m2, i.e. 767 TeqCO2 avoided
- Building C: 883 kgCO2eq/m²sdp VS 1776 kgCO2eq/m²sdp (C1 threshold)
🡺 Difference of 893kgCO2eq/m²sdp for 4116 m2, or 3675TeqCO2 avoided
Emission removal :
- According to FDES collective FCBA BLC: 811 kgCO2 eq./m3 for 200m3 or 162 TeqCO2 sequestered
- According to FDES Piveteau CLT: 836 kgCO2 eq./m3 for 1500m3 i.e. 1254 TeqCO2 sequestered
- A mixed-use program to meet all of the neighborhood’s needs: free and affordable housing, social housing, EKLO hotel, shops, etc.
- Co-design of future shared spaces with buyers via the Icade & Nous approach (AMU approach)
- Symbiose by Icade offer allowing buyers to create and maintain their own private green space (balconies)
- Creation of a garden on slabs for residents (positive biodiversity)
This demonstrator project in the third family of housing (R+9/R+10) can be replicated throughout France in local contexts, subject to financial feasibility with regard to the cost of local real estate, with a potential strong climate impact compared to traditional concrete projects.
During this construction project, a partnership was established with Maître Cube, a national wood construction operator.
