Geographical reach widens to Ivory Coast through our French office

Earlier this year, we announced the acquisition of the French engineering firm BECT, welcoming to the Archetype family a team of more than 40 professionals based in three offices – Paris, Lille and Marseille.

They are now operating as Archetype BECT, who offers turnkey consultancy solutions to French and European companies wishing to develop real estate and industrial projects in Asia and other emerging markets, as well as to Asian companies with project developments in Europe.

One specific target market of this extended branch is Africa, with construction of commercial and industrial projects on the rise. Archetype BECT has already scored a renovation project for African Development Bank’s headquarter in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, which is around 50,000 square meters of office space, spread over two adjacent 18-floor towers.

The renovation’s goal is to bring the building up to international standards for technical and technological development. Archetype BECT is confident in our technical resources to deliver a successful mission.
