Building and Urban Development

Engineers have revolutionized the planning and development of urban development projects through the use of new design and analysis tools. The issues of urban development and especially urban governance are now being addressed by all our clients in Africa, in a context of intensifying land pressure and galloping demographics.

The development of basic infrastructure for underprivileged neighborhoods (Abidjan, Brazzaville, Kinshasa, Douala, etc.) is receiving a favorable response from the technical and financial partners who support the States and governments.

To adequately meet the demand for housing, massive real estate programs should be born and developed during the decades to come.

With our team of engineers, urban planners, landscapers and architects, we intervene in the various fields of building and urban development with projects ranging from detailed design, to land use planning through various programs of new construction, rehabilitation and urban restructuring.

Certified ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 and especially ISO 14001:2015, BPL is constantly looking for solutions to bring our building and urban development projects towards a better environmental and ecological impact.

BPL, through its participation in the feasibility study of the governance of the Greater Abidjan metropolitan area (financed by the World Bank), is proud to bring an understanding of the challenges of urban development of the main economic pole of the Ivory Coast.
