Bouygues Construction wins a contract worth over €100 million for the renovation of the Hotel Crillon
Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France(1), a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, has won a contract worth more than €100 million for the renovation of the Hotel Crillon, on the Place de la Concorde in Paris. It will be the first time that this prestigious hotel has undergone a major renovation since it opened in 1909.
The project involves a complete refurbishment of the 14,000 m² building, including entirely recreating the decor and extending the bedrooms. The comfort of guests will be improved with the creation of new restaurants and a basement housing a spa and pool.
The project has been designed by the architect Richard Martinet, of Affine Design. In order to preserve the timeless style of the Hotel Crillon, the interior design has been entrusted to three decorators, Cyril Vergniol, Chahan Minassian and Tristan Auer, and an artistic director, Aline d'Amman.
The works will get under way this summer and will involve roughly 500 employees. They will last 24 months, with the reopening of the hotel scheduled for 2015.
Philippe Fabié, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Bouygues Construction, said: "This contract is further acknowledgement of our company's know-how when it comes to the renovation of listed buildings. For such projects, we work alongside the best specialised craftsmen in France for stonework, roofing and the authentic restoration of decors."
This project demonstrates Bouygues Construction's know-how in building and refurbishing luxury hotels. In Paris, following the Four Seasons George V, the Grand Hotel Intercontinental, the Fouquet's Barrière, the Royal Monceau, the Shangri-La and the Prince de Galles, the Group is currently renovating the Ritz.
