The Republic of Benin’s Ministry of Health has signed a contract with a consortium led by Bouygues Bâtiment International for the development and construction of the university hospital in Abomey-Calavi, the country’s second largest city.
Representing a total amount of €175 million, this project of more than 40,000 m² on two levels will have a capacity of 434 beds and places. It will include six large hospitalisation units. The technical platform will include three day hospitals, an A&E unit, a laboratory, medical imaging, radiotherapy and nine operating theatres. The project will also include teaching areas, staff accommodation, a mortuary and medical, catering and technical logistics units. The new hospital will be handed over in 2023, and is aiming for Edge environmental certification.

The design of this new university hospital, intended to become the benchmark hospital in Benin, was carried out in a consortium with the French architecture firm Michel Beauvais Associés, based on a programme carried out by the Paris Public Hospital Authority (AP-HP) and the design offices Egis Bâtiments International, Claire Planson and Oasiis. As part of its Healthcare offer incorporating finance, design and construction, the company provided the finance solution structured by Société Générale Financement Export and guaranteed by Bpifrance Assurance Export.

Along with the construction of Ridge Hospital in Ghana, the Mohammed VI hospital in Bouskoura, Morocco and the refurbishment of Yopougon hospital in Ivory Coast, the Abomey-Calavi University Hospital is a major hospital reference for the company in West Africa.
