Unusual construction in the Kingsdom of Siam
Bouygues and Thailand, a long and beautiful history. Since its first worksite in 1991 – construction of the new town of Muang Thong Thani – the company’s activities there have never stopped. Its Bouygues Thai subsidiary can even claim that 90% of its employees are natives of the country.
With The Met, the company undertook one of its most wonderful challenges: the three towers are of exceptional quality. They include 6 penthouses, each 350 m², and 370 luxury apartments over 66 floors, as well as a swimming pool, tennis courts and jogging course… not to mention the peace and tranquillity offered by several gardens. A peak of Asiatic refinement that the project was intended to recreate. Furthermore the development received top prize in the Housing category at the Barcelona International Architecture Festival 2009.
After the tsunami of 2004, Bouygues Thai was involved in constructing a school at Baan Nam Khem, a small and particularly badly affected fishing village located at the southern tip of the country, near the island of Phuket. The company is continuing its support: every year, it finances several teaching posts.
