We design, develop and sell urban prefabricated products that revalue rainwater through plants.
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.

Modular landscaping, aesthetic and functional solution for managing rainwater and biodiversity in an urban environment
BOCAGE URBAIN proposes a management of rainwater by the plant complementary to the existing solutions in the urban landscape: green roofs, valley gutters, retention basins, infiltration wells... The BOCAGE URBAIN storage structures take the form of prefabricated cubes combining a rainwater retention basin and a tank of plants specifically designed to maximize evapotranspiration. The BOCAGE URBAIN structures are installed on the linear tracks, buried in the ground, to collect runoff water and / or connected to the downspouts of rainwater to collect roof water (Model IN). They can also be installed at the foot of a building collecting only roof water (ON model). As the BOCAGE URBAIN storage structures are modular, they connect with each other in order to build a planted hydraulic network element replacing or supplementing rainwater drainage systems. Bocage Urbain brings tangible answers to 5 fundamental issues of the cities: 1) Reduce probability of floodings during heavy rains 2) Fight against heat islands 3) Vegetalize public spaces without the watering constraint 4) Improve urban air quality 5) Develop Biodiversity in the city
