Bouygues Construction Wins 140 Million Euro Singapore Contract

Bouygues Construction has won a 140 million euro contract to carry out The Sail@Marina Bay residential complex in Singapore.

The project, situated on the seafront in Singapore’s business district, includes two 71 and 63-storey towers. Standing at 245 and 215 metres respectively, they will be the tallest residential towers in the country and the tenth highest in the world. They will house 1,111 luxury apartments, three swimming pools, two tennis courts and a car-park. The original architecture, in the form of sails, features 80,000 square metres of glazed façades.

The works, which have just started and should be completed in the first quarter of 2008, represent a technical challenge. The towers, plumb with a metro line, will be built on reclaimed land, which requires building special foundations at a depth of 80 metres.

Bouygues Construction, which already has a strong foothold in Singapore through its Asian subsidiary Dragages Singapore, was selected in particular for its capacity to reduce completion times: the initial construction schedule set by the client was optimised to cut the completion time by one year.

In November 2004, Bouygues Construction also secured a 45 million euro contract to build four 43-storey residential towers in a large landscaped park in Singapore city centre.
