[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Terrasses du Midi in Saint Étienne[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The syndic council of the Terrasses du Midi residency, located in Saint-Etienne and constructed in 1977-78, decided to suggest a global technical diagnosis (DTG) and an energy audit at the 2015 co-owners general assembly.
Advised FONCIA IGD (the syndic managing the co-ownership), the syndic council first contacted the environmental supervising office AD Environnement for an energy audit and a DTG. Lacking abilities for the latter, CRISTAL A.B. was solicited for their knowledge about accommodations and renovations.
One year after the Alur law implementation, DTG reports are scarce. Both agencies spent many hours visiting the 7 buildings and 73 accommodations of the co-ownership. The analysis of pathologies, the research is archived documents (descriptions, plans), the meticulous assessing of the common portions and the polls with the residents allowed us to create a very detailed and precise report.
The report was presented to the general assembly on June 15th 2015, and met a great success. The co-owners were involved and asked insightful questions, to which architect CRISTAL A.B. gave satisfactory answers.
The co-ownership is actively preparing the consulting of companies that will allow the works. It will lower the energetic expenses while improving the comfort and security of the whole residency, according to our DTG’s prescriptions and the energy audit.
Because of the residency’s complex configuration and our lack of experience, we spent much more time than expected on this mission. Its success is rooted in our will to correctly study every hypothesis and detail, and is not based on profitability. We did not hesitate to go back to the site several times to verify details in the basements, the roofs and the surroundings of the buildings.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
