Centre Jean-Jacques Gautier

Centre Jean-Jacques Gautier is the APT’s headquarters, constructed in 2012 on the site of the former office.

Respect for the environment

Designed and built by a consortium composed of Swiss architects Charpente Concept (Thomas Büchi) and GMAA, the Centre Jean-Jacques Gautier respects the principles of sustainable development. The certification Minergie guarantees that the building is environmentally sound and that it has highly effective energy consumption, without the use of fossil fuels like petrol, gas or coal. The Centre was built mainly using Swiss certified wood.

Since July 2020, the Centre Jean-Jacques Gautier has hosted 9 hives in partnership with the Association printemps d'abeilles in order to support the cause of bees and participate in a better protection of biodiversity.
