Respect for heritage and sustainable development AN ENVIRONMENTAL PILOT PROJECT Respect for cultural heritage and environmental concerns have been watchwords from the star t of the construction of the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu. Optimized design and attention to strict environmental requirements have constantly guided the architects in the choice of both new and existing materials, with the aim of ensuring a framework wherein High Quality Environmental design requirements could be integrated while allowing the building to honour its primary function as a hotel. This hotel is a pilot project in France and is the second in the hotel industry to receive the High Quality Environmental Cer tification (the first was awarded to the Palais de Justice in Nantes, also renovated by Altarea Cogedim and Axa Real Estate and completed in November 2012, aRadisson Blu hotel).
