James is one of the French leaders in the construction of large span wooden buildings (15 to 60 m). The company designs, manufactures, and installs glued laminated timber structures throughout the country as well as in Belgium and Switzerland.

James is known as a high-end partner with the ability to advice, produce and implement projects. For more than 20 years, James has been passionately committed to a real environmental and societal approach.

100% of the sawn timber consumed is PEFC or FSC certified Self-sufficiency in gas since 2020. We launched a self-consumption project this year with two main axes, the reduction of our consumption (15 to 20%) and the self-production of energy thanks to a photovoltaic power plant. This will allow James to be 100% neutral in its impact by the summer of 2024. We will produce as much electricity as we consume!

Also, James will recover 100% of its wood waste on its site before the summer of 2023. We heat 100% of our facilities thanks to our new boiler installed in 2018 and we are investing in a pellet manufacturing project that should be on the way next summer!

Finally, we allow storing more than 5000teq CO2 per year in the buildings we install (about 200 to 250000m2 / year of covered surfaces).
