Protecting the public and the communities in which we live and work is high on Balfour Beatty's agenda across the globe.
With an ever-increasing need to update existing custodial facilities and replace dilapidated accommodation with modern and secure facilities, our work in this sector is growing. We understand the sensitivities around working in defence establishments and protected environments and have an in-depth understanding of the fail-safe security systems demanded by a 24/7 service.
In the US, we have built more than 55 prisons, jails and courthouses over the past 25 years. And our in-depth knowledge of the specialised requirements inherent to criminal justice facilities has helped earn us a 70 percent repeat business rate.
In the UK, we have completed projects for the Probation Service, Courts and Home Office and are delivery partners on the Ministry of Justice Regional and National Frameworks. Our Off-site Solutions manufacturing facility has improved the efficiency of prison construction.
