Bouygues Immobilier has acquired an equity interest in BePark through Bird, its subsidiary investing in innovative start-ups operating in the property development sector.
BePark, which was founded in 2011, offers innovative technology that allows owners and managers of public and private car parks to optimise space sharing and day-to-day management. Meanwhile, drivers gain easier access to a larger number of spaces. BePark thus provides effective solutions to parking problems, which is especially useful in major urban centres where it is becoming increasingly difficult to find on-street parking spaces.
