A new office building is the culmination of a painstaking creative process, the combination of strict parameters and decisive choices made in close collaboration with our partners :

- Incorporating the requirements of the public authorities and investors,

Issues involved in redevelopment
For the purposes of building redevelopment, we have set up an exclusive and virtuous renovation program called Revivalis in partnership with one of the key specialists in this area, Elithis.
The philosophy underlying Kaufman & Broad’s Business Property department is to redevelop properties in depth so as to :
- create Core assets by repositioning existing assets in the prime segment of their respective markets;
- restore the functional and technical features of new buildings;
- optimize surface areas and spaces;
- enhance the charm and authenticity of the original architecture or offer to give the site new meaning.
With this in mind, Kaufman & Broad pays particularly close attention to :
- planning ahead as regards the legal and regulatory framework;
- reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of corporate occupants;
- protecting the health of occupants.
The aim is to make the property attractive again so that a fresh cycle of long-term profitability and optimal liquidity can be generated for the real estate assets.

We do not design any program without taking into consideration the residents, workers, neighborhoods and uses of each one.
We have developed our business property expertise in the interests of users and cities alike, and we use it to develop ground-floor retail premises in residential or managed accommodation buildings.
Meeting the needs of local authorities
As a new growth driver for Kaufman & Broad, the Major Urban Projects department is introducing a new model for neighborhood projects that incorporates the neighborhood’s entire life cycle as of the design stage by establishing a collaborative relationship with the local authorities from the outset and for the long term.
The Major Urban Projects department takes a holistic approach to the city of the future and aspires to environmental excellence; it thus offers a comprehensive and concrete solution thanks to a structured approach to these issues.
In agreement with the local authorities, the group applies this virtuous and environmentally-friendly approach to set targets of excellence and measurement indicators for each project which it pledges to achieve for the long run.
The programs we develop can vary greatly in terms of size.
The Major Urban Projects department was created based on the firm belief that a sustainable neighborhood will only succeed if all the components within its ecosystem are coherent.
As part of this overall perspective, it seems essential to ensure that programs include a mix of housing, retail and services and that residents include a mix of different populations and generations if these neighborhoods are going to succeed, both in terms of energy optimization and in terms of local development and quality of life.
Lastly, to help these projects integrate within their urban environment, each program includes a component aimed at developing and supporting local initiatives led by residents. Kaufman & Broad thus joins forces with local authorities to encourage and support stakeholders involved in local development, such as local businesses, local associations, back-to-work initiatives and start-ups.
