Congratulations to our client, OKTA, on its recent LEED silver certification – awarded in recognition of its new office in La Defence, Paris – a single-storey, 950sqm space located the city’s Europlaza Tower.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and an international symbol of excellence. 

Through design, construction and operations practices that improve environmental and human health, LEED-certified buildings are helping to make the world more sustainable.

OKTA Paris achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions in areas including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

Speaking about Agilité’s role in the construction project, Galia Minkara, Agilité operations director, explained: “We reused the existing ceiling and carpets, but when it came to construction waste, we collated and audited all output and sent 87% of everything we removed from the site for recycling.”

Read the full case study. 

“LEED is a transformative tool that ensures a building is designed and operated to achieve high performance, improve human health, and protect the environment,” said Peter Templeton, president and CEO, USGBC. “By prioritising sustainability, OKTA Paris is leading the way in their industry and helping USGBC continue towards our goal of green buildings for everyone within this generation.”

Green buildings allow companies to operate more sustainably and give the people inside them a healthier, more comfortable space to work. Certification is proof that buildings are going above and beyond to ensure the space is constructed and operated to the highest level of sustainability. 

We’ve been enjoying a particularly busy year so far in 2022, with the brand launch of Agilité, the opening of two European offices, a significant investment in our services, and the onboarding of several new faces into the business — and we’re not stopping there!

Taking a look back at the past few weeks, this blog offers some insight into what our teams have been getting on with — as well as what’s waiting on the horizon.

Agilite global project Paris

Wrapping up in Paris

We recently rounded off a project that put a global investor and asset manager’s workforce at the heart of the design.

We’re looking forward to sharing the finer details of our development which saw us team up with STUDIOS Architecture — creating a bright, modern, vibrant, and welcoming office in Paris.

Elsewhere in the capital

NBA, one of the largest global providers of licensed sports merchandise, has opened its first store in Paris – with a little help from the Agilité and Gensler teams.

The retail space — found in Paris’s Latin Quarter and operated by retail giant Lids — marks the first NBA store in France and third in Europe, joining London (UK) and Milan (Italy).

Take a look around over on our blog.

International commercial interiors specialist Agilité has marked its continued growth with the opening of a Luxembourg office – as the company celebrates its fourth year of trading and expected turnover in 2022 exceeding €40 million.

With existing bases in London, Paris, and Milan, as well as a planned expansion into the US and Germany, the Luxembourg headquarters, located on rue de la vallee, comes as Agilité chalks up its 151st project since its inception in January 2018 – amounting to 120,000 sqm, delivered across 11 countries.

The Luxembourg office is headed by development director Kirsty Shearer, with her eight-strong local team including specialists in architecture, design, finance, and project management.

"Luxembourg is somewhere we’re keen to grow the Agilité reach and reputation,” explained Kirsty Shearer, “having already completed four projects in-country, and with an additional two underway or in the pipeline, it was important we firmly established a base here.

“We’re looking to further invest in the region too, and are actively recruiting for project managers and construction managers, financial managers within the Benelux region.”

Agilite teamAgilité’s thriving client portfolio includes brands such as LVMH, Lids/NBA,, Deutsche Börse, Fred Perry, Five Guys, and The Instant Group, as well as several major multinationals in the tech and finance sectors.

The founder and CEO of Agilité Solutions, Neil Coales, credits loyal customers — who account for 65% of the company's order book — as the driving force behind its rapid expansion: "When we launched Agilité, the strategy was always to have a seamless pan-European business that could be operational in multiple locations for multiple customers.

“We don't want to have an office in every country, rather we identify locations that best support our clients' growth plans and the strong local supply chains we are building. The pursuit of quality is as much our goal as the overall expansion, which is why we allocated a €1million investment into our people and systems (in 2021) as part of a five-year plan – it's critical to our success."

The expansion of the European company — which provides office, retail, and hospitality construction and fit-out work across the continent — follows 30% year-on-year growth and has included an extensive branding project to reshape its core principles, service set, and visual identity.

The news follows a successful year of trading in 2021, which saw a 30% growth in turnover and headcount, as well as exponential growth in revenue — amounting to €35million by the end of 2021.
