Bouygues Construction has chosen the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the Dassault Systèmes cloud to lead its business transformation and increase the productivity of its construction projects. This second phase follows on from the initial digitization and process automation phases at Bouygues Construction.
Citizens expect new approaches to urbanization and greater attention to sustainability. However, the construction sector has to deal with productivity issues, both because of the complexity of projects and the fragmentation of trades. The digital transformation makes it possible to support an economy that is both more sustainable and circular, by sharing knowledge and know-how throughout the value chain, and by giving rise to new economic models.
With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud, Bouygues Construction can take a systemic approach to project management that integrates digital matchmaking experiences across the value chain. This approach makes it possible to move from documents in which the different professions intervene independently, to a method based on integrated and collaborative models.
This integrated, inclusive and collaborative environment that uses a single source of actionable data will streamline the decision-making process between the various stakeholders - from general management to the field operator - at each stage of a project. This will enable Bouygues Construction to further increase the safety of its employees and partners. This will also enable the group to reduce its volume of waste and improve product quality from design to construction, by defining modular assembly components integrated into product lines such as retirement homes or student residences. This modularity will make it possible to cope with the complexity of future projects, while meeting growing needs for customization and durability, and adapting to market developments.
“Bouygues Construction has been using digital technologies for years and sees that the use cases could be more numerous and bring more value. » says Philippe Bonnave, Chairman and CEO of Bouygues Construction. "We are therefore looking for a stronger transformation that will impact the processes of our operations and that will prepare the future of the company: a transformation bringing more cross-functionality internally and with our stakeholders to bring ever more value to our clients. »
“Using the virtual twin in construction is an inclusive process and – thanks to the cloud and mobility – affordable. Unlike existing traditional methods, it allows everyone involved to understand and contribute to the process. All players in the sector aspire to transformational modes of collaboration and innovation. Have you ever thought that this dream could come true? » said Bernard Charlès, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Dassault Systèmes. “This revolutionary approach, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, forms the basis of our long-term partnership with Bouygues Construction. It represents a tremendous opportunity to combine our respective leadership and expertise, as well as to initiate a new dynamic in the building and public works ecosystem to move towards increased sustainability. »
