Balfour Beatty was founded in 1909 by George Balfour, a Scottish engineer and Andrew Beatty, an English accountant, to finance and develop tram systems. From humble beginnings, we have grown to become a global business operating in emerging and mature economies alike. We are now one of the few companies with the skills to deliver large scale, complex infrastructure projects and take advantage of the growth in long-term infrastructure markets. Balfour Beatty Group employ more than 50,000 people worldwide.
Balfour Beatty Group creates and cares 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.
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 depth of our technical expertise make 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 to work with them in creating the essential assets required by future generations.
