United Arab Emirates- June 16, 2019 , Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, will be organizing its eleventh France Pavilion at the Project Lebanon trade fair from June 18 - 21, 2019 in Beirut. This trade fair is the sole international event in Lebanon in the construction, building, materials and equipment sector. The French Pavilion will enjoy very good visibility thanks to a Premium location at the trade fair entrance. Ten French exhibitors will be presenting their innovative products, technologies and know-how to local building industry professionals.   The French construction/finishing work industry has several undeniable strengths  - With a highly fragmented network of 392,000 companies and sales of €135 billion in 2017, the industry has one or more global leaders in most of its component sectors: VINCI, EIFFAGE, BOUYGUES and SPIE, to name but a few.  - France boasts a highly diverse offering when it comes to the building trades, with companies of all sizes providing structural engineering and finishing work services (carpentry, roofing, insulation, sanitation, air-conditioning, smoke detectors, etc.) and interior fittings (wall and floor coverings, luxury tapware, home automation, etc.). - Innovation is a hallmark of French companies: new and biosourced building materials, wooden construction driven by ecological considerations, and smart building (BIM modeling, home automation, smart meters, energy optimization tools, solar glass, and smart thermostats, boilers and bulbs) are just some of the development initiatives currently being pursued by businesses in the sector. - Lastly, France enjoys a strong reputation for quality and reliability, which are especially important in the construction industry due to safety risks. A strong presence in foreign markets €7.1 billion are generated in exports . France tends to export top-quality, carefully designed, advanced technology products (innovative insulation materials, building facades that let in natural light, suspended ceilings, clay roof tiles, natural paints, decorative fireplaces, etc.).   The building and finishing work market in Lebanon represents 14% of GDP and as regards construction, it mainly depends on imports. USD 11 billion of promises of loans and donations were obtained by Lebanon from the international community at conclusion of the CEDRE Conference in April 2018, aimed at helping the country finance its multi-year development plan over the next 5 years. This context is a strong signal for French companies wishing to do business with this country which has a strong development potential.

Innovative Solar House Prototype by Baitykool competes for prestigious

Rejula ARUN - 16-oct.-2018 10:22:05

• University teams from UAE, Palestine, & France collaborate to create a remarkable energy saving prototype • Winner of the best prototype to be chosen during Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018 taking place from 14th to the 29th of November United Arab Emirates, 16 October 2018 – Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy along with the French Embassy in the United Arab Emirates are proudly supporting Baitykool, a solar house prototype project, in its bid to win the best concept and building of an ecological dwelling based only on solar energy, at the Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018. Developed in collaboration with students from Amity University (Dubai), Bordeaux University (France), Arts et Métiers School ENSAM (France), Architecture and Landscape, School of Bordeaux ENSAPBx (France), An Najah National University (Palestine) , the project Baitykool is a multi-family housing unit for extremely hot climates, adaptable in different shapes (co-living, co-working)  in a densely populated urban area and with a bioclimatic architecture. Baitykool competes among  21 university teams selected at this international student concourse and aims this year to play a leading role in this competition against teams from all over the world. This innovative project carries loud and clear France’s commitment to fighting climate change . The Solar Decathlon Competition created in the United States in 2002 combines architecture, engineering and technological innovation for green building development. The main objective of this concourse is to design the prototype of an ecological dwelling while respecting several criteria and rules defined by the organization. Teams compete on 10 requirements, namely: Innovation, Engineering and construction, Sustainability, Architecture, House functioning, Energy management, Sustainable transportation, Communication, Comfort conditions, Vegetation and Hardscaping. The 2018 edition of the Solar Decathlon has the distinction of being held in Dubai, a region where the climate is extreme with very hot temperatures and high humidity. Baitykool ambitions are fully aligned with the commitments of the One Planet Summit held in New York last week. This project also echoes  the “Make our planet great again” initiative launched by French President Macron last year, which is an appeal to researchers, teachers, entrepreneurs, associations, NGOs, students and civil society as a whole to come together to help devise climate change solutions. Philippe Lagière, project manager of Baitykool commented:  “We are so excited to be shortlisted for the Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018 awards and even more excited to show our project in Dubai during the Solar Decathlon Middle East competition in November!” Baitykool is a complete energy solution system involving the foundations of renewable energy, water usage and storage considerations. The prototype adapts itself to the humidity of air, the cold night sky radiations, solar radiations, while capturing the essential energy. Baitykool’s solution takes into consideration the whole environment of the site and the ecology into the heart of the dwelling, resulting in natural lighting, soil to generate food production and water recycling. The prototype being built in the UAE on the Amity University campus has been developed to solve the problem of the heat of Dubai by offering the best possible comfort to people throughout the day and throughout the seasons. “We have been working on Baitykool as a collaborative multi-nation team since 2016, and although we faced some challenges, we have successfully created a new way to experience residential life with our prototype. Baitykool, in terms of concept and execution, organizes living spaces efficiently with the use of solar technology. Our house is therefore protected during the day from the sun by a movable energy supplier, which in turn also manages the coolness of the home at night. It is a fresh new approach to smart and responsible living while being sustainable and contributing towards efforts made to maintain climate change,” added Lagière.   The teams from the several countries will gather during the decathlon in November to assemble the final prototype on the ground. Since the beginning, six educational institutions have been  part of the project, operating under an official consortium agreement, namely: - Amity University (UAE) -  Bordeaux University and I2M public laboratory for coordination (France) - ENSAPBx Architecture and Landscapes School of Bordeaux (France) - Arts et Métiers ParisTech (France) - Nobatek/INEF4 (France) -  An-Najah University (Palestine) This project has also been realized and activated by several public organizations with support in terms of funding, internships or with the provision of technical know-how:  - French Ministry of Culture and Communication - New-Aquitaine region and its competitiveness clusters CREAHd and Xylofutur - ADEME – Agency for the Environment and Energy Management - Arkinova organization - ADERA, structure for financial management In addition, around 40 companies coming from all sectors are involved in the project: - UAE based companies : Barrisol, ChamEvents, EDF Middle East, Enova by Veolia, Franke, Fin Mat, Legendre-Bin-Soulaiman, Legrand, Lewis, Lucibel, Schneider Electric, Aikah Electric - International industrials partners : Swegon, Wurth, Firestone, Steico, - French-based  partners : Air France-KLM, Atlantic, Bouygues-Construction, Piveteau o In New-Aquitaine region: Arkiturria, Base, Canoe, CILC, Coveris, Cube-Ingenierie, Durand-Beton and Etchart Construction, Epiphyte33, EPDM-Aquitaine, Flovea, EpsilonComposites, GRAITEC, JPEnerform, MauriceHome, Nieto, Ouateco, STILES, TellusCeram, Textilaine, Thebault-groupe. - END - For more info, feel free to contact Business France: Miryem Oukas Messidi Head of Communications – Middle East Mobile: +971 (0)55 478 32 15 Mail : miryem.oukasmessidi@businessfrance.fr
