Michel Raoust opened “Cabinet Raoust” in 1993, a thermal study consultancy firm, in order to support the rise of HQE (High Environmental Quality) in the building sector. During the 2007 Grenelle de l’Environnement, an environment forum which aim was to enhance concrete environmental measures in France, “Cabinet Raoust” became “TERAO SARL.
TERAO identifies by its three founding principles:
After over 30 years of dedication to sustainability, Mr. Raoust invests now all his efforts in knowledge transfer so the new engineers can keep on improving his undertaking.
TERAO takes advantage of the pioneering culture initiated by its founder, still deeply anchored nowadays. Indeed, our teams will provide systematically innovative solutions to the project team.
TERAO carries out projects over the 5 continents, especially in Asia and Latin America where our development drove us to open local operational branches.
TERAO stands at the forefront of Sustainable Building expertise owing to its 20 years of experience. TERAO and its collaborators have been participating actively both in France and abroad in the field of sustainable building and in emergent technologies thanks to publication of studies, calculation software editing and thanks to its participation to national and international working groups.
This everlasting culture of innovation enable us to offer solutions that anticipates the needs of project managers and guide them toward more and more high-performing and positive-impact buildings.
Sustainable buildings and cities often seem a cost-risk for investors, real-estate agencies and tenants, but they should not be. We provide them with innovative services and help them create a green neighborhod.
