Balfour Beatty is a leading international infrastructure group, financing, developing, building and maintaining innovative and efficient infrastructure that underpins daily life, supports communities and enables economic growth.
Providing the essential infrastructure assets societies need to function, develop and thrive, teams operate across the full infrastructure lifecycle:
· We finance
· We design and project manage
· We develop and construct
· We operate and maintain assets.
With more than 100 years of experience in delivering highly complex infrastructure projects, Balfour Beatty knows how to operate with the highest levels of quality, safety and technical expertise, integrating with clients and local supply chains and working with local communities.
The group operates principally in the UK and the US, with developing businesses in Canada, the Middle East and South-East Asia. Since it was first established in Scotland in 1909, it has developed as a truly global branded business, but the dedication to local heritage remains as strong as ever. The group’s annual turnover in Scotland is in excess of half a billion pounds and it has enjoyed a continuous building presence in Glasgow since 1978 and on civil engineering projects for significantly longer.
Infrastructure works have included major sections of the M8 urban motorway, the M74 extension and the world-renowned Kingston Bridge strengthening. Smaller infrastructure works in recent times have included Sighthill Tunnel infill, Andertston Footbridge, the refurbishment of the Albert Bridge together with the phase one preparatory works for the new hospice.
On the building front, major projects have included the new Victoria and Stobhill hospitals, together with refurbishment and fit-out at Glasgow Royal and new build at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Commercial projects include four office complex within Glasgow’s International Financial Services District, the new Radisson Red hotel and the complete redevelopment of 110 St Vincent Street. Less mainstream projects associated with the Balfour Beatty brand include affordable housing in Blackhill, the fit out of next generation aircraft carriers on the Clyde, as well as a significant land purchase in Kennedy Street, for the design, construction, funding and operation of more than 500 student beds.
Balfour Beatty is delighted to be involved in the main construction works associated with the new hospice and is already fully engaged with the building, community engagement and fundraising aspects of the project.
