Fully modular, with a capacity of 11,000 seats, it is intended to host major cultural and variety shows, as well as sporting events. This place of convergence and conviviality, with its architectural design and features, measures up to the world's largest arenas. Its rounded shape and the white of its concrete envelope, like a pebble deposited by the river, set it apart from the landscape.
Beyond its curvaceous architecture, the theatre is the result of a local and social project promoting the Bordeaux Metropolis.
Being a responsible company, Bouygues Bâtiment Centre Sud-Ouest supported local employment by entrusting 80% of the project to companies based in Nouvelle Aquitaine. The project also took on social commitments, with 35% of work packages awarded to SMEs and 18,000 working hours given to professional integration schemes.

Designed by the architect Dominique Perrault and built by Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France and Bouygues Energies & Services, the Longchamp racecourse, now called ParisLongchamp Racecourse, once again opened its doors, a full 160 years after its inauguration.
Following significant work demolishing the old structures on the famous site, the works teams built a new, larger grandstand with a streamlined design. It also places spectators much closer to the finish line. In terms of innovation, a mobile BIM tool was used during the construction phase that enabled builders to access information and schematics directly at the site.
The racecourse, which can hold 10,000 people and stretches over 160 metres, is environmentally friendly, welcoming, and innovative.

Bouygues Entreprises France Europe has produced the first, in partnership with the University of Nantes.
An original concept, BatiPrint3D™ is the result of multidisciplinary studies conducted by researchers from the Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes and the Institute of Research for Civil and Mechanical Engineering. This technology made it possible to deliver a 95 m² social housing unit in record time.
In technical terms, the arm of a polyarticulated industrial robot deposited three layers of material: two layers of expansive foam serving as formwork for a third layer of concrete. The robotic arm is guided directly around the slab by a laser sensor, using the digital mock-up of the house.
Yhnova is the first in a long series. Its distinguishing feature lies in its complex architectural shape, with curved walls and rounded angles.
Thanks to Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France and Bouygues Energies & Services, the piscine des Amiraux is back to its original glory. Built in the 1930s and classified as a historical monument, the pool was dreamed up by architect Henri Sauvage. Now it has been fully renovated and enhanced to incorporate modern-day usages while preserving its historical legacy.
The execution of this project consisted of bringing the building up to technical and accessibility standards and remodelling the reception areas, changing rooms, lavatories, and showers. A new heating process was developed, the glass ceiling was faithfully recreated, and the floor and wall coverings were restored to their original condition.
Finally, the centrepiece of the building, the 30- by 10-metre pool, was also demolished and rebuilt just the way it was originally, with all of the original construction details.

Floatgen is the first 100% European floating wind turbine, built and assembled in the port of Saint-Nazaire. Powerful of 2 MW, once the wind turbine starts working, it will produce the equivalent of the annual power consumption of 5,000 people.
This innovation in the renewable energy field is the result of cutting-edge work by Bouygues Travaux Publics and seven other European partners.
The major innovation is the floating foundation built to hold the wind turbine. The Bouygues Construction subsidiary developed a light, self-compacting concrete formula to reduce the weight of the structure as much as possible. This know-how confirms its expertise in terms of building port and maritime infrastructure.

As part of the Monaco offshore extension project, Bouygues Travaux Publics is building maritime infrastructure as the first step of the six-hectare expansion of the city into the sea. This maritime infrastructure consists of a fill enclosed by a band of 18 trapezoid reinforced concrete caissons and will serve as base for construction of the new eco-neighbourhood in Monaco.
The caisson precasting area is located in Marseille-Fos, the large French seaport and consists of a 10,000 sq.m area working space at the dock, which will be used primarily for preparing the reinforcements and assembling formwork for the caissons. It also includes a 32,000 sq.m area of water, where three times the size of a football field, where a floating dock will be positioned. This 56-metre-long, 50- metre-wide and 27-meter-tall floating dock will make it possible to prefabricate the 18 caissons, a first in France.
