Public buildings and infrastructure assets

Public buildings

and infrastructure assets

Governments must provide long-term safe and reliable infrastructure and housing. We help you improve the safety, quality, sustainability and performance of your assets.



As people move to urban areas, municipal authorities must respond by providing quality public goods, such as institutional buildings and infrastructure, schools, hospitals, stadiums and other sports facilities. Public and private sector investors and contractors must collaborate with a dependable partner to ensure that their buildings and infrastructure projects meet expected levels of quality, safety and affordability. In addition, institutional assets must be operated and maintained effectively, often beyond their expected lifetime, and adapted to different uses over time.


With a solid footprint in Africa that spans over 120 years, our services are carefully tailored to the African environment in order to help public and private companies construct public buildings and infrastructure on time, and on budget. We also provide in-service inspections and other OPEX services to optimize the cost of maintenance and extend the life of buildings and infrastructures.  Bureau Veritas also has recognized expertise in stadiums, hospitals and schools having contributed to some of the most prestigious projects in the world.
