"I am impressed by the scale of these projects. Bouygues Construction's activities are well established in Asia, and they account for some of our major projects in the year to come", Philippe Bonnave commented during this five-day visit organised by Nicolas Borit, deputy CEO of Bouygues Bâtiment International.
First of all the management team visited all of the five projects underway directed by Dragages Hong Kong, Dragages-Bouygues Joint Venture, Dragages- China Harbour-VSL JV, Dragages Macau: the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok tunnel, the Liangtang tunnel, lot 1128 of the Shatin Central line of the MTR, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge and the City of Dreams hotel in Macao. These four pieces of very large-scale infrastructure and a unique building represent various technical innovations implemented for the very first time in Hong Kong.

The team then made a stopover in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (formerly Burma) in order to visit the future Star City residential complex before travelling to Thailand to visit six building projects there: the Australian Embassy, the Mahanakhon tower (314 metres tall), the Park 24 and Noble Ploenchit residential complexes, the Ibis hotel and the Sirat Expressway. This tour of Asia ended in Singapore, where the management team visited four high-end residential and commercial projects: New Futura, The Venue, SkyVue and Jewel@Buangkok. These four projects are recognised for their characteristics in the area of sustainable construction. Each of them has won prestigious prizes such as the Green Mark Gold Plus or the Platinium Design Award, awarded by the Building Construction Authority of Singapore. The team also visited the recently finished Crowne Plaza Changi airport hotel extension (CPEX).
