Bouygues Construction and Colas announce the acquisition of Alpiq Engineering Services, a leading Swiss player in the energy, industrial services and rail infrastructure sectors
Bouygues Construction and Colas Rail, the rail subsidiary of the Colas Group, have been chosen by the Alpiq Group for the acquisition of Alpiq Engineering Services.
The consortium composed of Bouygues Travaux Publics, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, assisted by three subsidiaries from the Soletanche Bachy group, was chosen in March 2016 to conduct civil engineering projects on the future station of Fort d’Issy – Vanves – Clamart, designed by the architect Philippe Gazeau. To celebrate the beginning of the first civil engineering project for the Grand Paris Express, the future Fort d’Issy – Vanves – Clamart station, an inaugural day called 'KM1' for 'kilometre 1' will be organised by the Société du Grand Paris in partnership with Bouygues Travaux Publics on 4 June 2016 just beside the Clamart station. An artistic and cultural programme has been drawn up for this festive event to mark the launch of this extraordinary project.
ELAN, a Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France subsidiary, and Bouygues Immobilier were awarded the BiodiverCity® label, with “A” ratings in three out of the four possible areas for the new eco-neighbourhood in Font-Pré, Toulon. The property development operation is the first eco-neighbourhood to have reached such an exceptional level in the consideration given to biodiversity. As a founding member of the IBPC, Bouygues Construction supported the creation of the BiodiverCity® label, the first international label for the consideration given to biodiversity in property-development construction and renovation projects.
The long-standing presence of VSL – a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction – in Thailand and a perfect understanding of the local market contribute in making Bouygues Construction firmly anchored in Bangkok. The company has been involved in the development of the city’s public transport network, a major project in this high-potential area. As with the participation in the construction of skyscrapers such as The River and Mahanakhon, VSL knows how to apply its expertise across a range of building projects.
On 8 March 2016, the “Marignane Development Centre” was unveiled in Marignane in the Bouches-du-Rhône department. This brand new, cutting-edge engineering centre was delivered by Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est, for whom construction took only 18 months as planned. The ultra-modern building designed by L'Atelier d'Architecture Michel Rémon will encourage cross-disciplinary interaction between all stakeholders in the Airbus Helicopters development process.
At the end of November 2015 before the launch of COP21, Bouygues Construction and the WWF organised a symposium in Paris called reinventing cities. The event brought together nearly 300 participants, associations, companies, and local authorities for fruitful discussions and showed that it is possible to think, build and live differently in cities by starting work on a neighbourhood level and also activating the key drivers of governance, civic engagement and innovation. Rediscover the entire event including plenaries and round tables.
