Bouygues Construction and Colas announce the acquisition of Alpiq Engineering Services, a leading Swiss player in the energy, industrial services and rail infrastructure sectors
Bouygues Construction and Colas Rail, the rail subsidiary of the Colas Group, have been chosen by the Alpiq Group for the acquisition of Alpiq Engineering Services.
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.
Construction work on the East and West tunnels, which will be used to extend the Shatin to Central Link subway line on the island of Hong Kong, began in March 2016. Thanks to the first variable density TBM in Hong Kong, which officially began work on 19 August 2016, Dragages HK and Bouygues Travaux Publics, subsidiaries of Bouygues Construction, will carry out excavations beneath the city's busiest districts.
Bouygues Construction offers products, services and digital solutions for universities. In this area, the Group sees itself as a real demonstrator of its expertise! That is why its headquarters, Challenger, are transforming into a laboratory for experiments and full-scale tests.
