“Setting up a healthcare structure or a scientific committee as part of a construction or renovation project, involving scientists, healthcare and public health experts in a consultative process as early as possible allows health challenges and concerns to be identified and prioritised in the neighbourhood or region where the project is located, project-appropriate actions to be defined, and the project’s impact on public health to be measured and monitored as part of an evaluation process.”

Health is a priority for French people, ahead of employment, education and the environment.
Did you know?
According to the WHO, which has been the authority since 1948, living healthily in the city means living in “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
A jointly designed project
Collaborative workshops brought together experts from all backgrounds (health professionals, architects, sociologists, local authorities, mutualist groups, epidemiologists, psychologists, pharmacists, experts and solution providers from sport, food, services and medical facilities, etc.) to get a shared view of “healthy living environments”.
1 year to trial a “respiratory wellness indicator”
Developed by Bouygues Énergies & Services with a number of partners including the start-up Oberon, this preventive system will provide real-time, simultaneous information about the risk of exposure to pollens and fine particles within a neighbourhood for the current day as well as the next two days.
A solution to take care of indoor air quality
Because the air quality of our indoor spaces has become a major health concern, Bouygues Energies & Services and its partners – in particular the start-up Oberon – have combined their skills to create a brand new “respiratory wellness indicator”, guaranteeing high performance standards in terms of indoor air quality on the basis of several criteria: use of healthy materials that emit few category A, A+ or labelled volatile organic compounds, improved ventilation, outdoor air filtration systems, measurement procedures on delivery of the building and long-term user support. This solution is being tested on the Eureka project.
Health & Prevention space
This innovative concept was jointly designed under the aegis of a large scientific committee and regional operators. Spearheaded by Alliance Santé Confluence (Office Santé, AST Grand Lyon, Imagerie Médicale des Massues/Sauvegarde, Banque des Territoires), this open and attractive living space, spanning 1,200 m² over three floors, will combine primary care and preventive health services. A comprehensive, preventive and proactive healthcare offering able to anticipate the emergence of chronic diseases and help all members of the public to achieve their goals in terms of living well and ageing well.
