The Musée d'Arts project involves the extension and major renovation of the city of Nantes' iconic building. A look back on how the building works have been progressing since the start of the construction project in April 2014 by Bouygues Construction teams.
To help remedy the shortage of accommodation caused by an increase in the size of the French army, Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, and its partner, Ossabois, have launched the construction of sustainable modular timber-frame buildings, called Catalpa. On August 31, 2016, Major-General Bertrand Houïtte de La Chesnais, from the French army, inaugurated the first building of the Catalpa at Barby, near Chambéry, in the presence of the general of the Central Directorate of the Defence Infrastructure Service, the Prefect of Savoie and Pascal Minault, CEO of Bouygues Entreprises France-Europe.
Through its various business lines, Bouygues Construction is exposed to all forms of biodiversity and faces major challenges relating to them. Consequently, through its actions, the Group is seeking to reconcile the restoration of nature, sustainable construction and the quest for well-being. In this perspective, Bouygues Construction relies on the expertise of specialised associate bodies such as Noé, the WWF, the LPO (Bird protection association) and the Union Nationale de l’Apiculture Française (National French Bee-keeping Union). The strategy put in place by the Group gained recognition from the National Biodiversity Strategy (NBS) at COP21 which took place in December 2015.
