Banco de la Nación - 2015
San Isidro - Peru
135m  tall, the highest building in Peru.

Constructed by Bouygues Bâtiment International, the 30-storey tower in Lima housing the new headquarters of the Banco de la Nación, is now the tallest building in Peru. For this project, the teams have had to face a major challenge in building this structure in this particularly seismic zone, surrounded by the Andes. The building, which was constructed on behalf of the United Nation, also required the continuous pouring of 5,300 m³ of concrete, a first in Peru. Built in partnership with a local contractor, Cosapi, in only 15 months, the tower will also accommodate the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

The Pont de Normandie
Le Havre - France
a 856-metre central span

Within the “Pont de Normandie” consortium, Bouygues Travaux Publics built what was when it opened in 1995 the world’s largest cable-stayed bridge in France. It has a total length of 2,141 metres and a span of 856 metres, crossing the River Seine at a height of over 50 metres in order to keep the road traffic flowing without interfering with river traffic heading towards Rouen. In 1995, the 856-metre central span raised the world record for such a span by 80%. For Bouygues Construction, this project provided the opportunity to patent a construction method developed in-house, which proved itself capable of pushing a 700-metre deck up a stepped 6% incline.
