Experts committed to transmitting knowledge to CFAs, Olympiades des Métiers ...
TERREAL supports the teaching of building trades through partnerships and donations of products and skills.
Three experts from our customer service department train young people throughout the year in the techniques and know-how of the roofing and masonry trades. These transfers of skills and products to CFAs, Compagnons, AFPA, Olympiades des métiers, etc. promote training and professional excellence.
In 2020, nearly 4,500 euros worth of tiles and bricks were donated to training centres and more than 5,000 bricks were used for the largest international youth and vocational training competition.
In 2021, a total of over 8,700 bricks were donated.
Focus on a course of excellence
As part of the Worldskills competition, we supported Enzo Fromion, a candidate from Corsica, with a donation of perforated bricks. Following all the tests, with a high quality model, he won the medal of excellence of the competition. Since this experience, he has gone on the Tour de France with the Compagnons du Devoir.
Our other actions
Terreal sponsors the association Le Printemps de Septembre
In 2021, TERREAL is sponsoring the association "Le Printemps de Septembre" to build an ephemeral brick pavilion at the Institut Supérieur des Arts et Design de Toulouse for the 30th edition of the "Le Printemps de Septembre" festival in Toulouse. With a donation of more than 2,300 bricks, TERREAL wished to support cultural and artistic initiatives as well as to participate in this educational project where specialised students learned how to build the structure. After the event, the bricks were collected by training centres in order to give them a second educational life.
Circular economy, study with ENSAL for the recovery of construction site soil
Since 2015, TERREAL has regularly offered study topics to young architectural students at ENSAL, whose mission is to experiment and prototype with materials for architectural projects. Nearly 5 projects by some thirty students have been presented in this way, two of which have led to the filing of patents. In 2021, Terreal proposed to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Lyon (ENSAL) a study partnership as part of its students' curriculum. This project, in line with the Group's commitment, highlights the interest of using these soils in combination with clay products, such as the Brique Hauteur d'Etage.
