As a reminder, Bouygues Energies & Services has been consolidated within Equans since the start of 2023. For easier comparison, the nine-month 2022 data for the construction businesses presented below have been restated for Bouygues Energies & Services, as it contributed to Bouygues Construction’s figures.
At end-September 2023, the backlog in the construction businesses (Bouygues Construction, Bouygues Immobilier and Colas) rose 8% year-on-year to €29.8 billion (up 10% at constant exchange rates and excluding principal disposals and acquisitions).
Bouygues Construction’s order intake in the first nine months of 2023 was €8.1 billion, driven by the award of major contracts, including in the third quarter the extension of the metro line MTRC 1601 and construction of the Anderson Road Quarry multi-use complex, both in Hong Kong (for a total of around €400 million), the Les Acacias residential district and the Lucerne administrative site in Switzerland (for a total of around €260 million), and phases 2B2 and 2B3 of the Istrian motorway in Croatia (for around €110 million).

In the first nine months of 2023, Bouygues Construction’s COPA was €190 million, close to the €198 million reported for the same period last year. The margin from activities was 2.6%, notably related to the non-linear progress of worksites
