As a member of the Arema project company, Bouygues Construction is responsible for reconfiguring the Stade Vélodrome football stadium, and operating it for 35 years. The reconfiguration was a real challenge, because the stadium was continuing to stage matches and welcome supporters throughout the entire construction period. The project included the renovation of the stands, roofing them to protect all spectators from bad weather. A new eco-neighbourhood is also being built, adjacent to the stadium. The new Stade Vélodrome has now a capacity for 67,000 spectators. It meets all environmental criteria and is classified as a category 4 stadium by UEFA.
