Bouygues Construction is a global player in construction and services. With operations in over 80 countries, Bouygues Construction designs, builds and operates structures and facilities which improve people’s daily living and working environments.
Spanning the entire construction industry value chain
Being attentive to customers enables Bouygues Construction to establish relationships of trust with them. The group covers the entire construction industry value chain, from usage analysis to deconstruction, via design, construction, maintenance and user services, thus focusing its know-how on the entire lifecycle of its buildings and structures. Through its expertise in eco-design, it limits the environmental impact of its projects and anticipates changes in uses. Its legal and financial skills guarantee customers an effective long-term contractual framework for their projects. During construction, the company takes an innovative, collaborative approach and maintains a permanent dialogue with stakeholders. Once the building or structure is complete, Bouygues Construction offers a comprehensive range of value-added operations and maintenance services to ensure optimum performance over the long term.
A multi-local group
Bouygues Construction generates more than half of its sales outside France. The increased pace of its development owes much to the strength of its teams’ local roots in the 80 countries where it operates. From Hong Kong to Morocco, from Canada to Ivory Coast, from Australia to Switzerland, the success of the company’s projects depends on its expertise, of course, but just as much on the strong local roots put down by its people, who live and work in daily contact with the specific issues and challenges facing each region.
“There is a new spirit blowing over Bouygues Construction. The group is undergoing profound change, becoming more agile and less compartmentalised. The reinvention process that we have launched around our basics will strengthen not only our position as a global, multi-local player, but also our capacity to deliver the promise of excellence that we owe to our customers.”

Two key commitments: health & safety and ethics
The health and safety of its employees is an absolute priority for Bouygues Construction, reflected in a single global standard: the “zero accident” objective. This aim is expressed in several initiatives, such as workforce training, continuous improvement of construction methods, anti-addiction campaigns and more stringent on-site controls.
Ethical behaviour by managers and sales teams is another key commitment, with the aim of guaranteeing all customers a high level of ethical responsibility.
Innovation at the heart of the growth strategy
The company’s vision is one of innovation shared with partners, customers and employees. In all its businesses, the company will put the accent on innovative proposals and strengthen its potential by developing open innovation partnerships and supporting several start-ups. The same momentum of innovation also applies to working methods, in which digital technology and lean management are playing an ever greater part.
Major projects in 2016
2016 was once again a year of superlatives in terms of activity, featuring the continuation of major projects such as La Seine Musicale on Seguin Island in Boulogne-Billancourt near Paris, the Paris Law Courts and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge, and the start of work on new top-notch projects such as the XXL eco-neighbourhood in Marseille, the land-sea extension project in Monaco and the Port of Calais extension. The strengthening of the group’s property development activities under the Linkcity brand was another highlight of the year.
