Capgemini in Gouvieux
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, which was previously located in Béhoust in the Yvelines. The aim was to be closer to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport to facilitate access for international employees.
In 1998, the Group purchased the Domaine des Fontaines from the Society of Jesus (the ‘Jesuits’), which was looking for a buyer for the site.
From the outset, the Group wanted to restore the splendor of the château, preserve the historic heritage of the site (the Château, the Farm, the Tourelles) and the biodiversity of the park.
During construction, this led to:
- Creating different spaces to work and recharge - while maintaining a unity of place
- Keeping a permanent contact with nature
- Continuing the work of the Jesuits, by encouraging exchange and sharing
The Capgemini group is very committed to sustainable development, and during the construction, this was reflected in
- The use of specific materials with high energy quality when the High Environmental Quality (HEQ) standard did not exist.
- An underground parking lot with 300 spaces,
- Delivery docks for trucks under the castle,
- During the works, a washing station for the trucks before they leave the site,
- A study and monitoring of the fauna and flora to preserve the species.
Since its inception, the Campus has had a strong commitment to sustainable development, particularly regarding the environment and the protection of biodiversity.
...dedicated to corporate events
The Campus is specialized in the design and delivery of corporate events.
It is organized around two poles:
- The Château, for convivial moments
- The Forum, for business meetings
The 60 meeting rooms are all exposed to daylight. They are organized in 3 atriums, each with 15 rooms and 4 workshops, at the top of the trees on the 1st floor.
The auditorium, located in the basement, is under the flower boxes between the Forum and the Château. It has 450 seats and a stage over 20 meters wide.
The Campus organizes approximately 250 events per year. About half of these are organized for Capgemini, the other half for major CAC 40 groups, multinationals, and local SMEs.
