Bouygues to build Thai towers
Bouygues Construction’s subsidiary in Thailand has signed a €100m (£82m) contract for the construction of three residential towers and an office block.
Noble Development’s scheme which has a total area of 157,000m², is located in the business district of Ploenchit, in Bangkok. The three residential towers, which will have 14, 47 and 52 floors, will contain about 1,450 apartments. The office building will have three storeys.
Bouygues Thai is due to begin work in the third quarter of 2012, and the project is scheduled to last almost three-and-a-half years. At peak periods, approximately 1,800 employees will be working on the site, which is situated in a very dense urban environment.
This project is the fourth collaboration between Bouygues Thai and Noble Development. Bouygues Construction has been active in Thailand since the early 1990s through two subsidiaries. Bouygues Thai, its building-sector subsidiary, was responsible for The Met. The residential complex that was completed in 2008 consists of what were at that time the three tallest residential towers in Bangkok (232m). Another Bouygues Construction subsidiary, VSL, specialises in post-tensioning systems and mostly works on civil engineering structures.
