Bouygues to refurbish Paris Ritz

Bouygues won a contract to refurbish the Ritz Hotel in Paris for $183 million.

The hotel is to close this summer and reopen in 2014. It will be completely refitted, with Bouygues’ contribution including the furnishing of the property with a new summer restaurant with a sliding roof, additional suites, an extension of the ballroom and new technology.

Bouygues earlier renovated the George V in 1999, the Grand Hotel InterContinental in 2003, Fouquet's Barriere in 2006, and the Royal Monceau and the Shangri-La in 2010.
