Created in 1988, the ALPES CONTROLES company operates in different fields: technical control of buildings, coordination of security and protection of health, regulatory audit, real estate diagnosis, environment, testing activity – laboratories, tourist establishment classification, organic certification and training.

Today, Alpes Contrôles owns 32 agencies, its headquarters is located in Annecy and since March 2016, the company has been reinforcing its presence on the national territory with the opening of a new agency close to Rouen, in the business – service centre Innovapôle 76 on the Madrillet Technology Park. Thanks to this new establishment, two jobs were created and new skilled jobs will be produced by the activity development.


Why did you choose the Rouen metropolitan area to create this new Bureau Alpes Contrôles establishment?

Alpes Contrôles is an office of technical control of buildings whose historic establishments are located in the Southeast of France. As part of its development and national network strategy, the company has chosen to open a new agency in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, in the South of the capitale of Normandy, Rouen. This new establishment allows the company to get closer to its clients and to spread its influence in Normandy.

Thus, Alpes Contrôles reinforces its presence on the national territory and reaffirms its worth and its goals: reactivity, proximity, the excellence of the quality of its work and the attentiveness. This continual research for the improvement of its mission and the customer relation quality has made it a well-known associate of the public and private contracting authorities. In addition to the services verifying conformance with the current regulation of the construction (from the conception of the project to the reception of work), Alpes contrôles feeds a real partnership spirit which allows it to bring customers satisfaction.

What role did the Rouen Normandy Invest agency play in your establishment?

The Rouen Normandy Invest agency has been a real associate in the research of our offices and the decision of our establishment on the Madrillet Technology Park, in the business service centre managed by the CCI Seine Mer Normandy. The agency supported us throughout the process, from the first visits to our finale establishment.

Always attentive to our needs, the economic development agency advised us and allowed us to find a site which perfectly matched our needs.

What were your motivations to join Innovapôle 76?

The business (service) centre fulfilled our expectations on many levels:

– An easy access to the site, located at the intersection of the Normandy motorways and accessible by public transports from the Rouen train station with the metro line.

– An establishment which fulfilled the needs of a small structure with its many common services: its reception, its conference rooms, its cafeteria …

– Facilities included within a dynamic and innovative ecosystem, the Madrillet Technology Park with a collaboration between companies, research and training.

– Don’t forget the quality of life on both the environmental plan and the proximity of the business and service activities (catering, hotel, exhibition centre, Zenith …), it is an extremely pleasant site where we enjoy coming to work on it.
