“We absolutely wanted to commit ourselves to introducing people to the world of work on this project. It is the ideal place to learn about the rigour, commitment and flexibility expected in working life. This is a moral commitment, not a contractual obligation, but one that we are strongly tied to.”

For each visitor to the construction site, Bouygues Bâtiment Centre Sud-Ouest makes a €10 donation to the local children’s home.
The aim is to renovate the playground for children placed there.
All pallets from the construction site are collected by a local manufacturer, BURBAN Palettes, which reconditions them before giving them a second lease of life.
50,000 hours of work experience offered to members of the public currently out of work – this is the goal for the end of the project
Helping poor workers in Hong Kong
Make It Work is a support programme backed by the French Chamber Foundation that aims to help poor workers in Hong Kong to find secure jobs. To do this, it has developed a range of training modules and draws on a network of French and Hong Kong businesses. Dragages Hong Kong sponsors one of the modules, which gives unemployed people the chance to train in building maintenance and even set up their own business.
