Dominique Louis, Chairman & CEO
While urbanization has brought with it several benefits, it has also placed huge demands on housing and city infrastructures. Urban populations are predicted to double in size in the next 100 years. With a population estimated to reach 9 billion, the future of urban cities and how people lead their lives depends on how buildings are constructed today. The idea of a smart city emanated from such a long sight. Smart city thinking provides a blueprint to streamline energy consumption, workplace optimization, and security. The design and content of tomorrow’s buildings will be just as important as systems engineering and traditional building construction.
French engineering company Assystem designs and develops engineering services of tomorrow to ensure the optimum use of investments throughout the building lifecycle. The company coordinates and executes projects and infrastructures for its clients. As Assystem’s engineering teams bring the knowledge, skills, and expertise to solve project challenges, clients can streamline their operations and invest their energy in customer engagement and satisfaction.
As an international engineering group and one of the leading engineering consultancies in Europe, Assystem has over 50 years of experience working in complex and regulated industries.
Assystem specializes in managing complex projects across sectors such as nuclear, conventional energy, transportation, life sciences, health and industry. Assystem operates in 15 countries over Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
It is the second independent nuclear engineering in the world and one of the leading players in the fields of safety, security, digitization and systems engineering. Fifty years of experience have made Assystem a key partner of the world’s largest industrial groups: CEA, GSK, RATP, Sanofi, Total, Saudi Aramco, Saudi Royal Commission, Alstom, Rolls Royce, Thales Dassault Systemes, SNCF, and Rosatom, among others.
Assystem supports both private or public sector owners and contractors, including defense, education, retail, governments, healthcare industries, owing to its ability to enable high-end infrastructure development using its track record in project management, industrial information systems and design. It examines and integrates all the specific features of each infrastructure through its multidisciplinary and multi-sector skills.

The company has aced all the areas of project management. The company pays close attention to project needs from the design to construction phase keeping in mind the specific processes and interface of each infrastructure. It takes into account the operational requirements and the associated regulatory compliance in the areas of risks, containment, explosion, and fire. As areas such as high-voltage electricity, HVAC and confinement, seismology and structures, lightning protection need a high knowledge level to guarantee safety protection, Assystem brings skilled and knowledgeable resources to the table, who ensure the project meets all the technical specifications.
Team Assystem proactively takes into consideration environmental concerns when it comes to industrial and defence sites. This is to ensure all the regulations pertinent to safety, access and protection against malicious acts are met and maintained. The company adopts digital and robotics service solutions to meet the new needs of Operators of Vital Importance (OIV), in particular for hospital structures, by guaranteeing security for people, assets and information. These solutions also aid in the areas of management of complex projects, from feasibility/design to the delivery of installations. For fruitful results, Assystem also uses BIM to optimize infrastructure, from design to maintenance.
