Dragages established a presence in Hong Kong in 1955 when it was awarded the contract to redevelop the runway at Hong Kong’s first international airport, Kai Tak.

In 1986, Dragages became part of Bouygues Construction, a global leader across all construction disciplines with operations in more than 80 countries.

To further strengthen its capabilities, BYME Engineering (HK) Ltd. was set up in the 1990s as the company’s electrical and mechanical arm.

    Dragages was awarded the contract to construct what was to become an internationally-recognised icon: the runway jutting out into Victoria Harbour for the Kai Tak Airport. Other major projects soon followed.

    Dragages was brought into Bouygues Construction, a move which injected further international expertise and allowed the company to win larger and more technically demanding jobs. These included bridge, tunnel and landmark building projects.
