Central Lille welcomes the 5th edition of the ACE Workshop which brings together world experts in construction of the future. The Construction Chair 4.0, created by Bouygues Construction and Centrale Lille in 2017, will benefit from this event. Interview with Prof. Lafhaj, holder of the chair.
Head of the health unit at Bouygues Entreprises France-Europe
Longer life spans, maintenance of seniors at home and emerging new systems are transforming healthcare. Aware of the issues, hospitals are adapting their offer. With 3,000 public and private sites totalling 60 to 65 million square metres and a nearly 408,000-bed capacity, France’s swiftly changing hospital sector offers civil engineering firms and property developers major outlets and opportunities, from modernisation or expansion projects to innovation, product digitalisation and upgrading to tighter safety standards. Bouygues Construction is well established on this fiercely competitive market, which requires creating horizontal offers to remain competitive. Hospitals are the group’s biggest activity in France after housing. It's a market of many opportunities.
