ALICE’s construction simulation and optimisation platform uses artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline the planning, bidding, and building process.
Bouygues plans to use the ALICE platform at all stages of development, from preconstruction through to project delivery.
Bertrand Burtschell, deputy CEO at Bouygues Travaux Publics, said: “ALICE is ideally suited to help us to win and deliver the big infrastructure projects that represent the core of our business at Bouygues Travaux Publics.
“In the design and commercial phases, thanks to the ALICE platform, we can use the power of AI to design the optimal plans.
“In the production phase, ALICE will help us to reduce execution risk and ensure that we hit our schedule and budget targets. We see great potential in this partnership, and we are looking forward to putting the ALICE platform to work on our projects worldwide.”
René Morkos, ALICE technologies founder and CEO, added: “Bouygues is a technology leader in the construction segment and takes on some of the most challenging projects in the world.
“We are excited to help them tackle this work – from tunnels and bridges to ports and roadways. And we value the opportunity to collaborate with a company that has their vision and ambition.”
Bouygues has managed several notable large-scale projects such as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (pictured) – both the longest sea crossing and the longest open-sea fixed link in the world.
