Residential and Tertiary buildings

Urbasolar_Roxim-FrejusIf you own a tertiary building, are a porperty developer, a social landlord, etc. and need to:

• Repair weatherproofing on your roof
• Bring your building into compliance with new standards (RT 2012, etc.)
• Anticipate future thermal regulations (positive energy buildings)
• Construct a new building

URBASOLAR has sound experience in building and renovating premises. We are thus able to offer you a number of choices of photovoltaic process so you can turn your roof into an electricity generation power plant and a source of revenues.

An initial diagnosis reviews various forms of implementation, including a photovoltaic roof, awning or pergola, guardrail, sunshade, car shelter, etc. The second stage involves the final design of works by the URBASOLAR Design Office, and then construction.

URBASOLAR is the general contractor for your photovoltaic generator, ensuring the successful completion of your turnkey project for the Prime Contractor.

Opt for photovoltaic energy and boost your business buildings’ performances!


New Building – RT 2012

Carte France Zones RT 2012

Do you have a construction project?

Since July 2011 for tertiary buildings and January 2013 for residential buildings, standard RT 2012 has become applicable.

→ For any new construction, the mean primary energy consumption is limited to 50 kWhep/m²/year

According to the different French regions, this level varies from 40 to 65.










When you install local energy production on your building, the low-energy building label is calculated as follows: Cepmax + 12 kWhep/m²/an.

For a construction with photovoltaic power in Aquitaine, obtaining the label means you go up from 50 to 62 kWhep!

Including photovoltaic power plants in the initial design of the building will make it easier for you to obtain the low-energy building label, whilst preparing your roof to accommodate a generator and optimise the related costs.

During the engineering stage our teams work with your prime contractor, recommending the appropriate materials (structure, insulation, roof, membrane, etc.) to accommodate the retained photovoltaic process. URBASOLAR then manages your project, from design, administrative authorisations, construction of the generator, right through to electrical connection.

When you opt for photovoltaic power, you:

Facilitate awarding the low-energy building label,
• Generate a source of revenues on your building that can reduce your operating costs,
• Take part in the collective effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Roof renovation

Does your building require renovation due to damage, leaks, a need to intervene on the structure, defective insulation, bringing into conformance with new standards, etc.?

URBASOLAR’s integrated photovoltaic power plants form part of the building’s weatherproofing whilst generating electricity that is entirely fed into the grid.

The sale of the electrical power generated will turn the operation (an investment charge on your balance sheet) into a source of revenues that will finance your roof renovation works.

URBASOLAR looks after the entire project, from roof-structure design through to electrical connection, including the actual renovation and structural works. Construction work will not disrupt the use of the building and, as a building company, URBASOLAR will issue all forms of insurance related to the covered structural works.


Reduce your building fixed operating costs and do a good deed for the planet!
