Tipee platform

Innovation is not just about ideas

Tipee Platform, an expertise centre on sustainable building, supports the building industry stakeholders in innovating through a panel of services and research projects. Innovation and quality are core components of Tipee’s policy in order to better meet the needs of its clients.

Tipee was founded in 2012 within La Rochelle University and LaSIE (Environment Engineering Science Laboratory, for both La Rochelle University and the National Centre for Scientific Research – CNRS) to meet the needs of the building industry stakeholders.

The challenge was met as the Platform is now certified by the French Sustainable Building Plan and is partner of the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building (CSTB) with one common goal: to give the building industry stakeholders the necessary tools and systems to meet the challenge of sustainable construction.
