A question ? A project ? we’re here to help.
Luxaqua is an international engineering company that designs and builds aquatic facilities for marine research centres. Founded in 2007 by Grégoire Bastide, we are based in Lyon, France.
Trained in marine biology, Grégoire graduated in aquaculture and aquariology from the Applied Sciences University of Nancy-Brabois.
His early missions took him on a journey of designing some of the most luxurious aquariums in the hospitality and architecture industry worldwide. These initial years of experience left Grégoire with an unrivalled sense of details and an aspiration for purpose.
The project with the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in 2019 was a game changer. With a focus on sea turtles, it was the perfect illustration of how technology can serve science and conservation.
Our first job is consulting and engineering: we turn your ideas into technical drawings.
Do you need help writing the specifications of your aquatic research facility refurbishment or extension project? You do not know where to start? You knocked at the right door.
Marine and aquaculture researchers usually come to us with a burning question regarding the relevance of specific technologies, the financial feasibility or the necessary time frame. We are here to listen and guide you towards the unique solution you need. We speak the same language as the researchers. We can fill the gap between researchers’ objectives and engineers’ constraints. We pride ourselves on adapting to 100% of experimentation protocols requirements.
We support our clients in every step of the project until we push the ON button together. Thanks to our multi-disciplinary teams, we provide our clients with:
At Luxaqua, sustainable development is not an overrated commitment. We only use suppliers of high-quality and durable materials, using sustainable manufacturing. On our side, we always offer you the best energy-efficient solution while designing your system.
We know by experience that the organisation of any research institute is often one of the biggest challenges. From leading research protocols to maintenance, the different teams may struggle to communicate efficiently. We wanted to help. Beyond building custom fish tank rack systems, we let researchers focus on science by saving time.
We created our LXA_DATATECH software to monitor the different parameters of your installation while providing a collaborative platform. Our monitoring solution allows you to visualise and analyse your facility’s real-time data, such as water quality parameters, water flow, or water level. Its user-friendly interface allows remote control of all the pumps, filtration systems, protein skimmers, and lights. Nothing makes us prouder than when our clients are positively surprised and impressed by how advanced our bespoke monitoring system is.
We know details matter. Your complete satisfaction is essential to us.
Choosing Luxaqua for your aquatic research facility project is choosing durability, modularity and reliability.
