The major projects of his career

Alain Maugard is an initiator in France of the concept of ” positive energy building “. Field man, at ease in the circles of the high administration, he is also an engineer who has always led his action guided by a reflective approach to the challenges the construction sector has been facing in recent decades.
Very early awareness of the issue of the energy transition and to the standards and new process that would result in the construction sector, its work has fed some of the conclusions of the Grenelle Environment forum.


It is logical that the last part of his professional journey has led him to lead the scientific and technical Centre of the building, and now, even retired, to chair the certification body, Qualibat. “To develop his skills and get recognition, it is the interest of all companies, in particular those of the building in the current period. The structures are more complex to design and build. The sector as a whole is engaged in a dynamic of innovation without precedent, ” he said in 2009 at the site of the FFB when it takes over the reins of Qualibat. It has thus been established audits of site in order to better take into account the know-how “in situ” of professionals and in the field of certification, set up a ” nomenclature offensive “. “This reflects the developments in the building trades, and preserves their value-added. This is particularly true for what concerns the energy-efficient renovation ” he explained in the same interview, announcing a desire to better accompany the professionals in this transformation through partnerships with federations (FBB, Capeb, etc.).
