Bouygues Construction's (BOUYY.PK) unit, Bouygues Bâtiment Île-de-France, has been declared the tender winner for the refurbishment of the celebrated Ritz Hotel, situated in the Place Vendôme in Paris. The luxury hotel is to be totally refitted, which would encompass complete refurbishment of the decoration and renovation of the historic areas, while preserving the spirit of the iconic institution.

The company said that the comfort of guests would be greatly improved by the creation of a summer restaurant with a sliding roof, a larger number of suites, an extension to the ballroom and incorporation of the latest technological innovations. Architect Didier Beautemps of the Atelier Cos firm of architects and interior designer Thierry Despont would coordinate the project, while up to 600 people would be working on-site at peak periods.
