To meet the needs of specific categories of the general public, such as students, seniors, people with disabilities and tourists, Bouygues Immobilier is developing a range of both private- and public-sector serviced residences. Run by specialists, they offer numerous services to make residents' everyday lives easier.
A DIVERSIFIED OFFER nationwide
Bouygues Immobilier offers a wide range of serviced residences designed to meet very specific needs.
- Student residences: designed to offer a pleasant environment to live and study in, they are functionally furnished and offer amenities such as WiFi connections and catering and laundry services.
- Nursing homes: residences where medical care is provided to the elderly.
- Tourist residences: in the mountains, at the seaside or in towns, they cater for both sun-seekers and sightseers.
- Business travel residences: in town centres with easy access, they are designed to simplify everyday life (fitted kitchens, storage space, maintenance services, etc.) and work (office facilities, high-speed internet) for men and women on business trips.
- Adapted residences: residences specially designed for people with disabilities.
- Young workers residences: residences located close to employment areas for people on very low incomes.
Located all over France, these residences are staffed by professionals who specialise in the relevant fields (medical and social care, tourist or student accommodation, business travel). Some of them are situated in the eco-neighbourhoods developed by Bouygues Immobilier, where they contribute to social diversity.
Bouygues Immobilier quality and commitments
Bouygues Immobilier's serviced residences are run by top-flight operators, both public and private, who are leaders in their sectors (Pierre & Vacances and Belambra for tourist residences, ARPEJ and CROUS for student residences, MEDICA France for nursing homes, etc.). For each project, Bouygues Immobilier undertakes to hand over a residence in strict compliance with the manager's specifications.
Committed to a proactive sustainable development policy since 2006, Bouygues Immobilier designs serviced residences that comply with the most stringent environmental standards. As such, since July 2010 it has sought BBC-Effinergie® low-energy certification for all its new programmes.
A response to a changing society
Nearly 10 million people in France will be aged over 65 in 2020. The social challenge of a greying population needs appropriate solutions in terms of accommodation.
In a practical response to social change, in November 2014 Bouygues Immobilier and Acapace concluded a partnership agreement for the development of new-generation serviced residences for independent elderly people called Les Jardins d'Acadie. Sited in central locations in order to preserve links with the community, they offer adapted fixtures and fittings and à la carte services in a secure and friendly environment.
New-look student accommodation
The student accommodation sector is changing rapidly in response to occupants' new expectations. Against a background of new lifestyles, diversity, accessibility and new technologies, the challenge is to reconcile regulatory and other requirements with students’ needs.
Bouygues Immobilier won the special jury prize for its Le Djinn development at the Energy & Carbon Awards in late 2014. The event, created by the Bouygues group, showcases projects which incorporate particularly effective solutions for reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint. That is the case with Le Djinn:,a student residence built with 3D timber modules which uses renewable energy sources to produce its domestic hot water.
