The agora of transformations, a campus mindful of everyone’s wellbeing
Published on 2023.03.02
The pursuit of wellbeing
The agora was designed to tailor users' health and well-being, with a strong focus on fundamental needs and critical factors for professional fulfillment: air quality, water consumption, light and brightness, physical activity opportunities, comfort, acoustics, food, psychological well-being...
The agora, a smart building
To monitor and optimize its consumption, the building of the Lyon Gerland campus will be a “smart building”, with a R2S certification. This will allow to provide continuous comfort, safety and environmental performance to the agora. The R2S label is built on the framework definition of a “connected, solidarity and human-oriented building” developed by the Smart Building Alliance and the Alliance HQE-GBC. It takes into account altogether the users-oriented aspects, and those relative to technical principles and to governance.
The agora also aims at being OsmoZ certified, a quality-oriented standard regulating work environment. Its main ambitions are:
- Improving users' wellbeing, and the CSR performance of the School through its frame design, its interior design but also via its HR policy.
- Attracting talents and improving the School's performance while contributing to the great social challenges (public health, inclusion...).
