Adding value to a client’s real estate assets involves a plethora of factors and is becoming ever-more complex. The approach required to maintain the equilibrium of the various financial, societal, urban, architectural, technical and CSR aspects, for the benefit of the end-user, is broader and much more precise.
In addition to relying on their own personal culture, the teams at Builders & Partners dedicated to our real estate clients also have at their disposal a full spectrum of specialist skills and expertise within the Group, which means they can be more responsive, more reliable and maintain a greater degree of control over the services they provide to decision-makers within the framework of their projects.

LINES OF BUSINESS
COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
The renovation of this building complex typical of the post-Haussmannian era carried with it strong ambitions, both in terms of the architectural programme (high standards of comfort and high standards for users in general, restoration of historic elements such as mosaics, bay windows and cast iron railings) as in its environmental programme (certification targets: NF HQE/BREEAM/BBC/
Updating the iconic 5-star hotel at 17 Avenue Kléber to bring it into line with modern standards of comfort whilst conserving every detail of the original decor and furniture was a very tall order. The hotel boasts exceptional materials, mosaics, ceramic tiles, etc., so the programme and methods were studied with meticulous attention to detail to protect the history of this legendary establishment, and comply with the time frames drawn up by the Baverez Group.
The Lumière II project involved major refurbishment and reorganisation of 11 floors, an increase in the area of the sales floors and vertical circulations, the reconstruction of the grand staircase, and the renovation of the dome, canopies and façades. The highly ambitious programme, carried out while the site was still in use, made this project hugely challenging in both technical and organisational terms.
LOGISTICS FACILITIES & INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS
Provision of technical advice and expertise to Arax Properties in the framework of a maintenance and renovation programme in respect of its portfolio of logistics facilities. The portfolio comprises 12 buildings ranging from 4,000 sqm. to 70,000 sqm located on different sites across France.
The View real estate complex dates back to the 1980s. The investor wished to reposition the product as a luxurious multi-service residence, adding a fitness centre, a medical centre, retail units, a crèche and an office zone.
SPORTING AND EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES
American School of Paris
The American School of Paris drew up a project to welcome over 1,000 students on its 4.2-hectare Saint-Cloud campus, which meant modernising the site to ensure it was in keeping with the prestige of other top-ranking international private establishments. The project involved renovating existing buildings and constructing three new buildings (Upper School building, the Arts Link centre and the Lower School cafeteria).
LUXURY REAL ESTATE
Van Cleef & Arpels
The Richmont Group’s first project and fully compliant with safety standards, this major rehabilitation involved the creation of a real shop window for the luxury brand. The building houses the cutting workshop and school of the House of Van Cleef & Arpels in one exceptional complex. The project demanded “haute couture” competence from all participants.
