A recognized know-how
For more than 40 years, Bouygues Bâtiment International has been creating social amenities in many parts of the world and for many cultures. The company is present on every continent through a network of local subsidiaries that call on a wide range of expertise at Group level. The strengths of Bouygues Bâtiment International reside in technical and commercial innovation, managing complex projects, risk management, and acknowledged leadership in sustainable construction.
A strategy largely based on its capacity for rapid deployment enabled it to seize commercial opportunities in countries that are rising economic powers. In 2012, Bouygues Bâtiment International gained footholds in three new countries: Ivory Coast, Ghana and Brazil. Also noteworthy is the acquisition of Thomas Vale, a British company, which strengthens Bouygues Construction’s permanent network in the United Kingdom.
A strategic focus on training and safety
The company's training structures keep pace with advances made by markets and customers. The emphasis is on technical training and combining people's experience. In 2009, the Confucius Training Center was founded in Asia, where internationalised and decentralised training and professional development programmes in English are available for local employees and expatriates.
Bouygues Bâtiment International has regarded safety as a permanent priority for several years. Actions taken made it possible to extend safety training to all levels in the company and to involve subcontractors in its safety procedures.
