Solutions tailored to customers’ needs
Customers appreciate Bouygues’ construction businesses for their high-level technical skills. Its expertise in building tunnels in urban environments and bridges has enabled Bouygues Construction to win major contracts, such as in Hong Kong, with the construction of a gigantic bridge between Hong Kong and Macao.
Adapting to its markets is also a strength. Bouygues Immobilier’s focus on entry- and mid-level housing, for example, has enabled the company to regularly increase its market share in France since 2005.
Through its construction businesses, Bouygues stands out for its capacity to develop comprehensive packages that add substantial value for the customers, such as PPPs (Public-Private Partnerships) that combine design, maintenance and financing as well as construction. Projects include the French Defence Ministry, the Paris law courts complex and the Nîmes-Montpellier high-speed railway bypass in a consortium with Alstom. The Group also aims to expand on markets with strong growth potential. Colas, for example, has acknowledged expertise in urban transport and won a new contract in 2012 for the Algiers metro.
