Our approach

We are at your service

Delivering a high-quality building, on time and on budget, is our priority. To achieve this goal, we work according to a precise work methodology, based on LEAN Management, which optimises both your budget and the implementation of the project itself.

Our engineering and design office manages all of the risks inherent in the design and completion of your project. This allows us to guarantee you a price at a predetermined level of performance. Our on-site teams, for their part, agree to respect the time frame and ensure that this price will not be exceeded, while dealing with unforeseen circumstances specific to the site.

Our QSE policy

BPC has implemented a Quality Safety Environment management system based on a continuous improvement approach which requires every employee to get involved proactively. In its approach, BPC relies on the ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environment) standards. Not only is our company committed to comply with regulatory legal requirements in terms of QSE; above all, we aim to exceed them to achieve excellence. Consequently, BPC’s targets are: zero accidents, zero incidents, zero pollution, zero nuisance and zero non-compliance.

Our history

1865

First establishment in Schaerbeek of a Blaton-Aubert factory which mainly produces garden ornaments. However, it very quickly starts taking on projects as a genuine general contractor. From then on, the company will carry out industrial and civil engineering works, including the Cinquantenaire railway tunnel excavation works, the construction of the Port of Brussels, the bridge over the Meuse River at Huy, and more.

1927

Armand-Eugène and Emile Blaton found “Entreprise Blaton-Aubert”, their own construction company.

Over 30 years, they will carry out major construction projects in France and Belgium, such as the Central Station in Brussels and many sections of the North-South Connection (Jonction Nord-Midi) railway link.

1954

In the 1950s, the two brothers decide to each create his own business.

Emile then sets up Compagnie Industrie and Emile Blaton, while Ado and Jean Blaton, two of Armand Blaton’s four sons, create the Bâtiments et Ponts company.

2000

BPC is acquired by what will become the Vinci Group. The company is then renamed “Bâtiments et Ponts Construction”.

2004

The Belgian group CFE, in which Vinci was a shareholder, buys BPC.

2012

Creation of BPC Hainaut, BPC Liège and BPC Namur in order to have more local bases to meet construction demand in Wallonia.
