The Majunga Tower was designed to take into account the changing characteristics of cities in the 21st century. A bright and open working environment which offers outdoor areas on every floor and gardens around the base of the building, it promotes wellbeing, interaction and performance.

The three slightly differently shaped vertical strips of the bioclimatic facades, create a striking exterior whilst also enabling the maximum amount of light to penetrate. Its exceptional environmental performance will enable users to significantly reduce their energy consumption and their carbon footprint.

Completed in December 2014, the building was the first high-rise building in France to receive BBC certification in its design phase, the first office tower in continental Europe to obtain BREEAM certification at the "Excellent" level in its design phase and Excellent HQE certification in the design phase with the achievement of 11 out of a total of 14 very high performance targets. It has an exceptional carbon footprint for its location in the heart of the city, and a primary energy consumption of less than 80 kWh PE/m2/year.

SAS International manufactured and installed 37,300sqm of SAS330 to the base build (Cat A) and due to its premium nature and value added design elements, these have been retained by occupants including AXA and Deloitte. The linear grid form of the profile suspended ceiling allows for complete void access and total service integration, whilst flush tiles met with the aesthetic expectations of the architect and end clients. Partitioning was seamlessly integrated via the Omega C-Profile to create meeting rooms.

SAS worked with an acoustic consultant from Salford University to meet the project specification and carried out bespoke testing to achieve the specific absorption levels required and contributing to the BREEAM and HQE certifications.
