Balfour Beatty

For more than a century Balfour Beatty have shaped the world we live in, pioneering new technologies and transforming the built environment. Bringing ingenuity and joined up thinking, they deliver your projects, from single commissions to programmes of work, across Scotland.

They create and care for the vital assets that mean our communities and economies can 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.

Using pioneering new technologies to drive innovation, they transform the built environment, investing locally and building sustainably to connect communities and create the infrastructure that underpins our daily lives.

Supported by our team, they’ll deliver your complex infrastructure schemes with the highest levels of quality and technical expertise. They’ll work collaboratively, sustainably and safely with you, local supply chains and your local communities, to create iconic structures and bold engineering feats, that establish a legacy for future generations.

This is a very collaborative process between contractor, designer and client, which has helped realise the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) SCAPE benefits.

Our engagement process

01 Before you start

We’ll help you to explore your project requirements and help you to identify the framework options available to you, to achieve the very best possible outcomes.

To use any of our direct award frameworks, a simple form called an Access Agreement is required. It only needs to be signed once, it carries no cost or commitment, and allows you to use any of our current or future frameworks.

02 Inception

At this point, we’ll be with you as you start to build a relationship with Balfour Beatty.

We’ll help you to understand the SCAPE process and we’ll be with you every step of the way, to give you any advice or training that you need and to get your project started with confidence.

03 Feasibility

Balfour Beatty will work closely with you and your team, holding in depth discussions and workshops to make sure they fully understand your project aspirations, including timescales and budget.

We’ll also be with you at every step of the way, ready to give you guidance or support throughout this process.

The information collected from these discussions will be collated into your free feasibility study.

04 Preconstruction

At this stage, you’ll be ready to enter into an agreement with Balfour Beatty. This will set out the defined services to complete the pre-construction phase.

At the end of this process, you’ll receive a 100% market tested cost plan, including a fully identified local supply chain.

05 Construction

When you are ready to move to the construction phase, you’ll enter into a Delivery Agreement which will formalise your partnership with Balfour Beatty.

Our teams will continue to be on hand to support you throughout the delivery of your project, monitoring performance and together we’ll ensure that your project is delivered to the highest possible standard.
