Renovation work on the universities of Bordeaux has just been officially inaugurated with sustainability as the key word.
The €538 million Operation campus programme is a large real estate and development project which is part of a scientific and educational vision.
It aims to make the Bordeaux campus a leading university set in the heart of an attractive and dynamic area.
The Science and Technology sector is the first major operation of the Campus Plan: €120 million out of the €538 set aside for the universities of Bordeaux.
It will enable renovation of the 16 buildings of this part of the university dating from the 1950s. Seven of them will be equipped with bioclimatic façades so as to retain the red brick buildings while dividing energy bills (heating and air conditioning) by seven or eight.
