French social housing association

General description :

Vilogia is an established entrepreneurial group of social housing that owns and manages a stock of rented property including around 70 000 dwellings spread in high demand areas. Being 3rd biggest social housing company in France with the average of 1500 new dwellings delivered and more than 650 retrofitted per year, they house around 140 000 tenants. Vilogia is the urban developer working with local authorities, heavily involved in urban regeneration.

VILOGIA regarding Deconstruction and Reuse :

In 2020, Vilogia launched a carbon neutrality roadmap defining priority actions on materials and waste. This roadmap defines the group’s objectives for the circular economy by 2025. The aim is to define quantitative targets for recycled or reused materials in our construction, deconstruction and rehabilitation operations. To support this strategy, Vilogia has launched pilot operations on buildings of different sizes and types. Near Paris, Vilogia has transformed offices into student accommodation, with a recycling or reuse rate of 93% of materials, including 15% reuse. We are also working on the deconstruction of bricks, a major source in the north of France, with the deconstruction of an industrial wasteland allowing the recovery of nearly 400,000 bricks, some of which are reused in situ. Vilogia is also going to open, with its partner Lille Métropole Habitat, a physical storage platform for reused materials so that they can be reused in future operations.

VILOGIA in the DDC project :

Vilogia is proposing a pilot site as part of the European INTERREG NWE Digital Deconstruction project. The technologies used in the project have been tested on Vilogia’s pilot site, allowing concrete feedback for the developers, as well as an in-depth analysis of the site for Vilogia, in view of its deconstruction. This experience within the Digital Deconstruction project is essential for a social housing company such as Vilogia, to improve the group’s deconstruction sites, and thus limit the carbon impact of these deconstructions, but also that of future constructions, in order to offer its clients quality housing that preserves our common resources
