Thales moves head office to Paris La Défense

Key points

  • Thales occupies the top seven floors of offices in the 38-storey complex.
  • The Carpe Diem tower is the first new building to open in the latest phase of the La Défense development and is an outstanding example of advanced technologies and innovative building techniques.
  • The complex is an eco-designed building certified to the highest environmental standards.


The corporate headquarters of the Thales Group has moved to the Carpe Diem tower in the La Défense business district of Paris. The move to these new, modern premises in a more prominent location is part of Thales's long-term strategy of growth and development and reflects the enduring values and ambitions of a truly global organisation.

Thales is the first company to move into the new complex and now occupies the top seven floors of offices (floors 28 to 34) in the 38-storey tower, with total floorspace of 10,245 sq.m. for 440 employees.

The Carpe Diem tower provides an improved working environment for Thales head office staff as well as numerous other geographic, operational, business and environmental advantages. The complex is one of the most recent towers to open at La Défense and meets the world's highest environmental building and energy efficiency standards. Carpe Diem has received a platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) label, the French High Environmental Quality (HQE) certification, as well as the French Very High Energy Performance label (THPE).

The Carpe Diem tower enjoys a central location in Europe's largest business district and is exceptionally well served by public transport. The new building is an ideal workplace for Thales head office staff and provides an excellent setting for receiving customers and other visitors.
