The spirit

As world leader in soil, structural and nuclear engineering, Soletanche Freyssinet has from its inception applied a business model based on a common culture that underpins our performance and drives our success. It builds on the following principles:

A decentralised organisational structure

The directors of our business units have local autonomy to ensure that our brands are efficient and responsive. This operating method enables us to stay close to our customers and supports initiative.

Safety in our DNA

The safety of our employees, partners and subcontractors is one of our fundamental values. At Soletanche Freyssinet, health and safety are an integral part of our processes, worksites, workshops, factories and agencies. This ensures progress in our safety culture.


Soletanche Freyssinet teams are encouraged to put forward new ideas and take responsibility. We believe that cultivating initiative and creative thinking fosters engagement and drives collective excellence.

A shared overarching goal: excellence

The Soletanche Freyssinet Group is made up of highly specialised engineers. Our day-to-day work on each project is focused on the quest for excellence. Our goal is the sustained expansion of our six brands.


Attention paid to employees at the heart of HR

Soletanche Freyssinet makes the most of its wide range of business activities and international operations to foster mobility. We invest in customised training to offer our employees exciting career prospects and diversify their assignments.

The environment as a source of innovation

The Soletanche Freyssinet brands have taken eco-design and eco-construction on board, fostering the tools, methods and practices that minimise our environmental footprint despite wide variations in regulations and standards from one country to another.

A well grounded Group with a community focus

Soletanche Freyssinet’s social vision reflects our ethical commitment to serve as a transparent, long-term partner for the communities and regions where we work and to open up new avenues of cooperation everywhere we operate.
