Dassault Systèmes and Bouygues Construction renewed their strategic alliance seeking to open new horizons in the construction industry. The three-year revival accelerates the research and development of cloud-based and mobile-enabled systemic and modular approaches, transforming the industry’s multiscale, fragmented ecosystems and addressing its sustainability problems.
Both companies will mainly rely on the Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform capability to collaborate during a project and to create and model product lines that simplify and streamline their relationship with developers, architects, subcontractors, manufacturers, consumers, and operating companies. The platform provides on-site staff with capabilities for collaboration and innovation that unite the entire ecosystem of a project.
The creation of a construction virtual twin will help to industrialize project management from design to operation. Upstream of the value chain, this method allows for the most suitable design, based on the way the building is used. Processes can then be industrialized, anticipating the different phases of a project at the earliest possible stage and planning their on-site implementation in detail.
Energy savings, new field tracing, and waste management execution practices will be made possible. Finally, the overall goal of a broad portfolio of custom made and qualitative features is to raise productivity in the sector, boost quality, reduce errors, facilitate compliance with new sustainability standards and enable increased project delivery predictability. In this regard, three industry solution experiences based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform will be applied to the construction sector: ‘Integrated Built Environment,’ ‘Inclusive Urban Future,’ and ‘Building Design for Fabrication.’
Explaining on meeting the requirements of the project’s specific set of increasingly complex demands, Philippe Bonnave, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bouygues Construction, added, “Through our partnership with Dassault Systèmes, we are taking a different approach to developing the way we construct for our customers’ benefit, and potentially to improving how the sector addresses environmental challenges. This revolution can only be achieved by involving all project stakeholders in the creation of a virtual twin. Such a high level of collaboration calls for a single digital platform that will bring this ecosystem together.”
In similar context, Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, explained, “We are convinced that a renaissance of the construction industry is possible – one that will make it more sustainable and more affordable. This new level of integration will reduce waste and enable the construction life cycle by providing new capabilities to site workers to collaborate and innovate. The success of our current projects with Bouygues Construction calls for an accelerated and extended cooperation to cover the wide diversity of construction projects. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is providing a new generation of cloud-based, mobile-enabled virtual twin experiences to construction, thus being a game-changer in the industry’s transformation toward a more simplified, streamlined and sustainable one.”
