The contractor has signed a partnership agreement with manufacturer Airlite to use its revolutionary paint for the next three years.

Airlite actively purifies the air by attacking and neutralising pollutants and microbes.

It comes in 180 colours and can be applied on any typical surface inside and outside to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and mould, reduce air pollution by 88.8% and neutralize odours.

Airlite was chosen through Bouygues Construction’s Matching Up innovation programme designed to identify new solutions being developed by start-ups and SMEs.

Chair of Bouygues Construction United Kingdom Fabienne Viala said: “Airlite is a ground-breaking product which offers real innovation to significantly improve sustainable environmental performance and air quality, key priorities for the Group and for the industries we operate in.

“It brings considerable value to what we can offer clients across our project portfolio in the education, residential and healthcare sectors.”

CEO of Airlite Antonio Cianci said: “Airlite was created as a simple solution to improving air quality and the health and wellbeing of us all, whilst also caring for our planet.

“Our partnership with Bouygues Construction United Kingdom demonstrates our commitment to these topics, as well as how relevant they are across the full design-build-operate-maintain cycle, for contractors, owners and tenants.

“We look forward to working with Bouygues Construction United Kingdom across the education, residential and healthcare sectors to make a real difference to the health and well being of us all.”
