Balfour Beatty

Balfour Beatty is a leading international infrastructure group. They finance, develop, build and maintain innovative and efficient infrastructure that underpins daily life, supports communities and enables economic growth. Together with their partners and supply chain of small and large firms they finance, develop, build and maintain the vital infrastructure that we all depend on.

For more than 100 years they have created and cared for the vital assets that enable societies and economies to grow: road and rail; airports, seaports, tunnels and bridges; health and education facilities; heat, light, power and water; places to live and places to work - the infrastructure that underpins all our lives and drives progress.

From their beginnings in 1909 they have grown to become an international business operating in emerging and mature economies alike. They are now one of the few companies with the skills to deliver complex projects of huge scale and take advantage of the growth in long-term infrastructure markets.

Their impact is in iconic structures and bold engineering feats, hidden innovation and buried pipes and pumps, and all the joined-up thinking, financing and partnerships that make up the world's great infrastructure projects today.

The combined breadth of their capabilities and depth of their technical expertise makes them a true international leader in infrastructure. The dedication of thei people and the shared values that unites them give their many stakeholders the confidence to trust us and do business with us. They have a collective commitment to operate sustainably and safely wherever they operate.
