Airport Development

 The best runway for your projects to
take off.

"The possibility of moving heaven and earth."

This is what Bouygues Bâtiment International offers public bodies wishing to build a new airport complex or develop an existing site.

Airport projects are among the most complex in the world because of their size, their level of technological sophistication and their regulatory constraints. They require an assortment of highly-specialised expertise: financing, design, construction, maintenance and operation.

World leader in the construction of public infrastructures under structured financing, Bouygues Bâtiment International provides its clients with full control of the development of these projects, even in the most demanding circumstances.

For both Air Side (airport terminals, airport aprons, freight and maintenance infrastructures) and Land Side (shopping areas, hotels, offices close to the airport) the quest for excellence guides our team of specialists who will implement the most appropriate solutions to meet your needs.

We employ the best technological solutions Air Side to make life easier for airlines, passengers and operators. From baggage handling to security and check-in systems - while taking account of the management of passenger flows - everything is thought through to optimise daily operation of the airport. This was particularly so in Cyprus, where Bouygues Bâtiment International was able to make the new airport installations one of the major assets for the development of tourism on the island.

And because an airport is so much more than just a hub, our developers also consider the life that goes with it. Land Side, everything was thought of to make the airport a real focus for development to benefit the country's economy. In this way, in the shadow of Hong Kong International Airport, Bouygues Bâtiment International developed the largest exhibition centre in Asia - AsiaWorld-Expo, a five-star hotel for the Marriott chain, and the headquarters of the Hong Kong Civil Aviation authority. This project was awarded the BREEAM Platinum certificate, illustrating our know-how in zero-emission airports.
