As a responsible and committed leader in sustainable construction, Bouygues Construction sees innovation as its primary source of added value: this is “shared innovation” that benefits its customers while improving its productivity and the working conditions of its 47,350 employees. Bouygues Construction generated sales of €11.7 billion in 2017.
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.
A multi-local group
A global player in construction with operations in over 80 countries, Bouygues Construction designs, builds and operates building, infrastructure and industrial projects. It generates more than half of its sales in international markets, operating in places where it has long-established local subsidiaries as well as working on projects which require high-level technical expertise.
An innovative, responsible and committed player
In 2017, Bouygues Construction reasserted its determination to honour its “Shared Innovation” promise by building innovative, responsible and committed projects with its partners and employees for customers, local authorities and the environment.
Innovative, to open up new horizons and help imagine what our world will be like tomorrow.
Responsible, because Bouygues Construction respects its customers, its employees, the environment and all its stakeholders. Each day, that responsibility is expressed in individual and collective initiatives to ensure health and safety for everyone on all its worksites, impeccably ethical behaviour and protection of the environment in France and in the countries where Bouygues Construction operates.
Committed, because Bouygues Construction contributes to practical action in response to major social challenges by giving priority to local employment, occupational integration and the local added value of its projects, by promoting openness to society and partnerships, and by backing solidarity.
Health and safety
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.
Each day, Bouygues Construction helps to build tomorrow’s world in an innovative, responsible and committed way, and to make the worksite the finest place on earth. 2017 was a year of innovation with Ynhova, the 3D printed house in Nantes, continuation of work on the viaduct of the New Coastal Road on Reunion Island, and modular construction with the Clement Canopy project in Singapore.
A number of major projects were completed during the year, including Paris Longchamp Racecourse, the Queensferry Crossing in the UK, the Liantang tunnel in Hong Kong, Bordeaux Métropole Arena, the Hôtel de Crillon renovation in Paris, the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakesh Museum, Noheji solar farm in Japan and the first phase of the Greencity eco-neighbourhood in Zurich.
On the CSR front, in 2017 the Terre Plurielle corporate foundation supported 179 charities, 40,000 hours of occupational integration were worked on the Nord Deux-Sèvres hospital project in western France and the first all-timber residential complex was built.
