BASF and Bouygues Construction, one of the world leaders in construction and services, have signed a framework cooperation agreement on joint innovation projects for the construction industry at the occasion of the Innovation Campus organized by Bouygues Construction in Paris to jointly develop innovative solutions.
The cooperation supported by BASF’s Industry Team Construction establishes an alliance which will allow both groups to create more added value in sustainable construction and to face the challenges of the future together. This includes energy efficient buildings as well as the CO2 reduction in construction. It also includes the testing of materials of the future and the reinforcement of both groups' technical expertise.
“Our partnership brings together the expertise of the leading chemical company and our application know-how with Bouygues, who drives globally a huge number of major projects all along the construction value chain", said Philipp Kley, Senior Vice President Construction Chemicals Europe at BASF. "We are very happy to connect with Bouygues to jointly realize step-change innovation for the construction industry.”
Bouygues Construction held the Innovation Campus at its head office atrium which was transformed into an exhibition space for its partners' major innovations. BASF experts presented a preview of current and future innovations, including a new generation of polymers for controlling the viscosity of concrete and a new generation of high performance insulation materials (Slentite and Slentex) for customized climate management.
