Les Fontaines: Capgemini
A campus accessible to international employees,
Faced with its growing internationalization in the mid-1990s, Capgemini was looking for a new location for its Campus, until then located in Béhoust in the Yvelines region. The objective was to move closer to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport to ease access for international employees.
In 1998, the Group therefore bought the Domaine des Fontaines from the Jesuits, who were then looking for a buyer of the site.
From its conception, the Group wished to restore its splendor to the castle, to preserve the historical heritage of the site (the Castle, the Farm, the Tourelles) and the biodiversity of the Park.
During construction, this led to:
- Create different spaces to work and relax – while maintaining a unity of place
- Maintain permanent contact with nature
- Continue the work of the Jesuits, by promoting exchange and sharing
The Capgemini Group is very committed to sustainable development, and during the work, this resulted in:
- The use of specific materials with high energy quality while the High Environmental Quality (HQE) standard did not exist.
- An underground car park with 300 spaces,
- Delivery docks for trucks under the castle,
- During the works, a washing station for the trucks before they left the site,
- A study and monitoring of fauna and flora to preserve species.
