Who we are

A multidisciplinary group with over 100 years' experience

Since first going into action in 1909, the BESIX Group has over the years grown into a multidisciplinary company with a leading position in its markets: construction, property development and concessions. BESIX Contracting specializes in construction, infrastructure and marine works, often in contracts with a high level of complexity. In Benelux and France, the Group’s regional affiliates BESIX Infra, Belemco, Cobelba, Jacques Delens, Vanhout, Wust and Lux TP ensure a strong presence and a local approach. With Franki Foundations, West Construct, Socogetra, Sanotec and Van den Berg, the Group offers specialist niche solutions for the building market like deep foundations, geo-engineering, road construction, water treatment and cable and pipeline construction.

Backed by our experience in our home markets, we have built up strong positions outside Europe. A typical example is the Middle East, where over a 50 year period we have built up an impressive portfolio. This diversification in activities and geography pays off by reducing our risk exposure.

Value creation from an integrated approach

The synergies between the Group's entities enable us to create value for the customer that goes beyond just building. Where necessary, and relying on our PPP experience, we can also play an active role in financing, operation and maintenance of the projects we are involved in.

One feature that sets BESIX aside in its industry is its in-house engineering department, with expertise in geotechnical engineering, concrete technology, methods and planning tools like BIM and System Engineering. By optimizing our design work and then aligning the execution stage on it, we produce ‘value engineering’, minimizing the risks and costs of failure, and optimizing cost and implementation time for the client.

It is in our DNA to bring every project we undertake, however challenging, to a successful conclusion. It is typically in difficult circumstances that we display our full creativity and flexibility to ensure a project’s success. At all times we pay close attention to the most stringent safety regulations, which are a top priority for BESIX.

Your dedicated partner from contracting to concessions

Value chain

BESIX has evolved from an esteemed contractor into a full-service enterprise that brings added value to any construction. Contracting is still our core business, but our activities in Concessions & assets and Real estate have taken flight as well. This wide-ranging expertise enables us to handle every aspect of a project, from financing over designing and building to operating and maintaining. No wonder we have committed to numerous EPC and DBFM projects worldwide during the past ten years: we manage the full life cycle of an asset.
