A social network for neighbours
Chairman and Founder of Ensembl’
“Our partnership with Eiffage is based on a shared belief that social relationships are key to quality of life in our apartment buildings and neighbourhoods. Ensembl’ puts the warmth back into smart cities.”
Wouldn’t it be great if the co-owners of a new residence could find out more about neighbourhood living and keep in touch via a free, private digital network? They could share information and tips, help each other out, and lend things to one another.
We are committed to supporting the local community and encouraging people to help one another, in each of the residences we build. We have teamed up with Ensembl’, the local community connections and helping hand specialist, to offer this service to future home-owners from the point they reserve their unit.
Local services and social events
In eco-neighbourhoods like Smartseille, the pilot for smart cities as created by Eiffage Immobilier, or Seine-Ouest in Asnières (Hauts-de-Seine), created by Eiffage Aménagement, local residents have access to an e-concierge platform. It offers a wide range of services, from taking post and parcel delivery to ticket purchases and appointments with hairdressers, beauticians, garages, etc.
The concierge is on hand to organise anything the residents need and manage the dozen-strong pool of electric cars provided for their use. Do you have an event to organise in the versatile, multi-use venue? Contact the concierge, or book online.
The concierge service is more than just a platform. It’s also a physical place for residents to get together and socialise. Local people head for the concierge’s office for the French national Neighbours’ Day or to find someone to help them out with gardening, energy coaching, childcare or tutoring.
Optimising the space taken up by cars in our cities
The traditional “one parking space per car” model is no longer the only way to manage car parking. At Smartseille, we have created a shared car park.
The 630 spaces are used by local residents, hotel guests and people working in the area. As one car leaves, another arrives to take its place.
Occupancy is optimised. Spaces are never physically reserved, but drivers know they will always be able to park.
What are the benefits of the shared car park? In this new district of Marseille, it has improved the balance between the supply of and demand for car parking spaces. The area dedicated to cars has been reduced, which optimises construction costs and frees up space.
Moving in, without the hassle!
Moving into a new home is a stressful business. There is so much to do on top of the physical moving process – fit the kitchen, put in cupboards, decorate, have the electricity and water connected, and much more. -
To make moving in easier, we have created a new service: l’Atelier by Eiffage. A manager will work with you on a daily basis, offering help and advice to take the stress out of moving by:
- welcoming you on arrival;
- advising on DIY;
- installing the various things you need;
- looking after your keys;
- lending you equipment;
- loaning you 4G dongles;
- recycling your furniture and old white goods;
- taking in deliveries for you;
- managing skips.
Move in without the hassle with l'Atelier by Eiffage
L’Atelier by Eiffage is a local service to help new residents as they move in, for example by offering advice, loaning equipment and 4G dongles and doing minor jobs. The service was created by Eiffage as part of the #immo-inno challenge.
