Habitat Social Positif (HSP) is a pioneering project which aims to build the first social housing in France to receive "Bepos Effinergie 2013" certification. The project is a partnership between the town of Castelnaudary, Habitat Audois, Terreal and the Lycée Andréossy.
HSP shows that it is already possible today to use locally made, sustainable materials to build homes that consume less energy than they produce, at a reasonable cost.
Let since late 2013, the homes form the basis of an interactive project in which their real-life performance will be monitored so that the energy controls can be refined in collaboration with the tenants.
For over 150 years, TERREAL has been creating responsible solutions by capitalizing on the beauty and durability of clay, as well as on the innovation of solar energy.Based on this unique experience, our group creates innovative solutions for the building envelope, through four activities : roofing, solar, structure and cladding-decoration. TERREAL has annual sales of approximately €626 million (pro forma of the acquisition of CREATON) and more than 3,300 employees around the world.
