Access to decent and less energy-intensive housing is a national priority, so the authorities have set up mechanisms to encourage social landlords to renovate their housing stock (Climate Plan, quality of company with a mission for social landlords introduced in the Pact Law, etc.). Today, 7 million homes are poorly insulated and the number of energy sieves is estimated at 500,000 in social housing. Some social landlords, such as Elogie-Siemp, have therefore undertaken ambitious renovation initiatives. In addition to the energy and carbon impact reduction challenges, renovation is also a lever for deeper transformation in the service of tenants and management methods. Renovated housing is more compliant with all technical standards and tenant comfort requirements in terms of health preservation, concern for well-being, maintaining the autonomy of people in the home, etc.
Thus, if we want to act quickly and at a controlled cost, this massive renovation of social housing inevitably involves interventions on occupied sites – which adds a significant layer of complexity to the projects. The work undertaken is sometimes major and likely to generate difficulties of use and daily nuisances.
The challenge is therefore to guarantee quality of life and comfort for the occupants as quickly as possible. To ensure that rehabilitation is not experienced as “intrusive solicitation”, it is essential to implement genuine consultation upstream, followed by ongoing dialogue between the three stakeholders (companies, landlords and tenants) throughout the operations.
To do this, it is necessary to be innovative in the constructive processes employed, in the methods of intervention but also in the management of interactions between companies and tenants. Nevertheless, it is clear that there are currently no conventional off-the-shelf solutions to solve these problems. Thanks to their proximity to the field, their agility and their mastery of digital tools, start-ups are ideal partners to co-construct and develop solutions in response to new and urgent needs.
This is why Elogie-Siemp, in collaboration with Impulse Partners, has launched the “REMOCOM” call for solutions dedicated to consultation in the context of rehabilitation in occupied environments. The approach conducted in partnership with Elogie-Siemp has demonstrated the relevance of soliciting start-ups: 3 relevant solutions have been selected and will be tested on 3 different sites.
