We are Balfour Beatty, a leading infrastructure group operating internationally - engineers, builders, project and facilities managers, analysts, consultants and more.For over 110 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 innovation.

From our beginnings in 1909 we have grown to become an international business operating in emerging and mature economies alike. We are 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, bold engineering feats, behind-the-scenes innovation and 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 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.
