Our vocation

ETAMINE helps its clients to incorporate environmental quality into their projects, in the fields of construction, building management and urban planning. We provide expertise in designing, implementing and making good use of efficient and innovative solutions.

Our services

For 20 years, ETAMINE has been developing its renowned expertise in assessing energy performance and providing sustainable building solutions. ETAMINE was a pioneer in the use of dynamic thermal simulation, which guides most designers of energy efficient buildings today. In our projects, we transmit our vision and the experience we have gained through more than 2,000 projects.

We develop every project by mobilising:

  • Our technical expertise, supported by powerful simulation tools that we use proficiently (10% of our turnover goes to research and development);
  • Our operational experience in construction and urban planning projects, working as the contractor, assistant to the building owner or assistant to the operator.

Thanks to this know-how, our participation in a project brings no new constraints. On the contrary, we help to strike the best balance in terms of architecture, performance and budget, while fostering dialogue among all those involved.

Our environmentally responsible commitment

  • Etamine is a workers’ cooperative (SCOP) and as such is part of the social and solidarity economy. This status ensures that each member of our team, a partner in the company, is committed to our shared vocation.
  • Our headquarters are located in a Net Zero energy office building, and we make a continuous effort to improve its performance.
  • We also work every day to reduce our ecological footprint (e.g. non-motorised commuting modes, optimising our IT stock, eco-friendly supplies).
