By working in its home region for so long, the Group has developed extensive skills in water and environment-related spheres. They are available to clients in France and abroad through four main activities.
For the last 50 years, BRL has been involved in development in Languedoc-Roussillon, supplying the water necessary for all its projects. In the true spirit of its regional land-use management assignment, acting upon request from the Regional Council, local authorities or other economic stakeholders in Languedoc-Roussillon, BRL’s job is to control and manage water resources, to protect and utilize the coast, to prevent and control floods and to enhance and develop rural areas.
In addition to local resources that are fragile and often insufficient, BRL distributes over 100 million m3 of water in Languedoc-Roussillon every year, drawing it from renewable, abundant sources thanks to the hydraulic infrastructure it has built in the region: canals, dams, pressure pipes, pump stations, drinking water treatment plants, etc.
Water, environment and development engineering have become one of the most significant group activities, in France and in over 80 other countries in the world. BRL performs engineering services for public and private clients and for national and international fund donors calling on all the core skills in the Group: hydraulic infrastructure, irrigation, urban hydraulics, but also the environment (natural area management, environmental assessments…), water course management, port improvement, integrated coastal area management, etc.
BRL produces ornamental plants in one of the largest nurseries in the South of France and works on park, garden and countryside landscape utilization and maintenance as well as taking part in landscape design and improvement projects. BRL is also a player in rural and forest area development through local community programs for wasteland management, reforesting, forest service roads, etc.
