We enhance and maintain the infrastructure that brings people together, create communities and underpin everyday life.
We create safe, flexible and dynamic public spaces. We are right at the heart of a vital place-shaping agenda that brings together local authorities, local communities, central government and the private sector. Our projects are geared towards community need, economic growth and sustainability.
To help local authorities achieve the targets set out in the UK Government’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy “Taking Charge” Balfour Beatty Investments’ Urban Fox partnership provides a whole life solution to electric vehicle chargepoints: funding, building, operating and maintaining a range of fast, rapid and slow chargepoints including an innovative 7kW on-street chargepoint which is the first of its kind to the market. Installed into the pavement, the unit fully retracts underground leaving pavements clutter free and accessible for users when not in use.
Working in long-term partnerships with local authorities to create great places to live, work and play, Balfour Beatty Living Places provides highways maintenance, street lighting and public realm services. We actively engage with local people to understand the needs of the communities we work in and shape the places where local economies can thrive and grow. As a leader in sustainable working, diversity and social value, we use our expertise to bring real, positive change for our customers. We leave a legacy of connected communities with strong local economies that really work for local people with clean, safe and prosperous streets and social spaces.
