Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France, subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, signed a partnership with Les Canaux to design and build a 170-square-meter terrace. Built from reclaimed materials along the Canal de l’Ourcq and beneath the Maison des Canaux, this terrace was drawn up by architect and set designer Myrtille Fakhreddine and urban gardener Cédric Derouin. A temporary space (the Terrace will be taken down on 2 September), built using materials from company building sites and other sources!

A motorway to reshape the Istrian peninsula
Having carried out the design and construction of phases 1A, 1B and 2A of the Istrie motorway between 1997 and 2011, Bouygues Travaux Publics, an affiliate of Bouygues Construction, was selected to deliver phase 2B1 of the project, including the widening of the lanes to a 2×2 format in the toll road section between Rogovići in the west of the peninsula and Vranja in the east. This represents a further opportunity for the Group to participate in the region’s transformation and boost its economic momentum.
