"The Scape framework allowed input through the early stages of scheme development and access to Balfour Beatty resources to help meet very tight timescales which otherwise may not have been possible"
- David Boyer, Warrington Borough Council

A brief history
For more than 100 years, Balfour Beatty has 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 an international business operating 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.
Balfour Beatty’s 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 depth of our technical expertise makes us a true international leader in infrastructure. The dedication of our people and the shared values that unite the company give our many stakeholders’ confidence and trust.
Balfour Beatty has a collective commitment to operate sustainably and safely wherever we operate.
