"ENERGIE IP has created a strong partnership with Bouygues Construction by responding to calls for tenders in order to offer clients the most efficient, scalable and eco-responsible digitalized buildings on the market. Bouygues Construction has adapted its site management methods to integrate new technologies such as ENERGIE IP.""
"Following the POC route, Pilot and then industrialisation and deployment, Bouygues Travaux Publics has allowed Simsoft Industry's voice assistant to be quickly deployed on sites where tunnel boring machines are in use.
At the end of 2018, Bouygues Construction acquired a stake in the company. This should enable a massive deployment of the technology through various subsidiaries and businesses in production, maintenance, quality control and metrology."
"Smiile and Bouygues Construction are revolutionizing rehabilitation projects! Our objective is to ensure that worksites are calm and collaborative so that life is easier. The next step is to quickly move beyond this "test and learn" phase to industrialise our process together and to be present in most of the Bouygues Construction rehabilitations. Smiile must become essential and habitual, until using it becomes a reflex."
"We are very pleased to provide our know-how and trusted third-party technology to secure and facilitate data exchanges for major "Smart City" projects led by Bouygues Group teams and its partners."
"Centrale Lille and Bouygues Construction have designed the Industrial Research Chair ‘Construction 4.0’ so that industrial needs guide applied research. Interpersonal undertakings during the research process ensure that this Chair provides scientific and structured answers to questions not yet explored in the construction process."

Bouygues Construction took an interest in Hesus because of the Hesus store platform, which offers land exchange between worksites, and entrusted it with worksites where the young company was able to recycle the extracted sand. Ever since, the group continues to support Hesus via a Construction venture investment.
Smiile is a tool that allows residences, districts, and cities to organise themselves to share objects, services, trips, purchases, etc. In this partnership with Bouygues Construction, Smiile is used as a support tool during the rehabilitation of occupied sites and has been included in the Wizom catalogue.

The new IEEE802.3BT standard published at the end of 2018 allows connected objects of up to 100W to be powered simply with a computer cable. This represents a real revolution in the building industry, as Energie IP is the first company to exploit this technology by implementing the Smart Building solution for the supply and control of lighting, blinds and air conditioning in office buildings. Energie IP digitizes the building from the technical rooms to the workspaces, with a Smartphone to control the equipment.
Morphosense develops a unique solution for continuous, real-time and remote monitoring of the structural integrity of civil engineering structures (bridges, dams, tunnels, towers, etc.) and energy structures (offshore Oil & Gas platforms and floating wind turbines, among others).
The collaboration with Bouygues Construction will enable this new technology to be used on projects in the civil engineering, offshore and construction sectors, offering greater quality, safety and services.
Since 2016, Bouygues Construction has been working with Early Metrics to rate innovative start-ups and SMEs. The rating is used to validate the strength and growth potential of the group’s investment targets. The process takes into account over 30 extra-financial criteria and includes an interview with the founders and other stakeholders (customers, suppliers, employees). This independent rating system can also be used before signing a contract or a framework contract with an innovative actor.
Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies
In July 2019, Bouygues Construction and Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies entered into a technical and commercial collaboration agreement to develop and test concrete formulations using a new, unique and innovative type of cement. H-EVA technology, which has a carbon footprint that is 70 to 80% lower than traditional Portland cement, is the focus of this collaboration. This strategic union is a considerable driving force in the face of the climate emergency, the results of which will contribute to creating a more responsible and sustainable construction industry, where cement currently represents 6% of greenhouse gas emissions in France.
The collaboration between Bouygues Construction and Simsoft focuses on structuring a complex voice-controlled intervention report. The project concerns the development of an Intelligent Voice Assistant to assist tunnel boring machine pilots in generating a “shift report” (a tunnel report) containing a description of all events that occurred during the 8-hour shift.
Taking into account terrain constraints, the voice assistant adapts to the noisy environment of the underground environment, the operators' accents and their language.
