    Balfour Beatty story

    We are Balfour Beatty, a global infrastructure group operating around the world – designers and planners, engineers, builders, project and facilities managers, analysts, consultants, and more.

    For more than 100 years we 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 our beginnings, in 1909 we have grown to become a global business operating in over 80 countries, in emerging and mature economies alike. We 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.

    Our 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 our capabilities and the depth of our technical expertise makes us a true global leader in infrastructure. The dedication of our people and the shared values that unite us give our many stakeholders the confidence to trust us and do business with us. We have a collective commitment to operate sustainably and safely wherever we operate.”
