07/04/14 - Partnership with ESB NANTES
An eco-design project
Through its association with the Institute for Wood industries based in Nantes, France (Ecole Supérieure du Bois de Nantes), our company got the opportunity to join workshops promoting eco-design.
As a responsible company, Menuiseries Bourneuf’s aim is to reduce its environmental impact.
This partnership enabled us to minimize the environmental impact of our products by giving away end-of-life windows and glazing units that were recovered from jobsites to the ESB students.
The students had a week time period to give those end-of-life products a new life. Such technical challenge allowed them to show their skills and served to create unusual, practical and stylish pieces.
