Creating value, together

Together, Balfour Beatty and SCAPE deliver projects at the heart of local communities and create critical national infrastructure via rapid access civil engineering frameworks.

Since the start of our partnership in 2015, we have added over £400 million of social value to local communities and economies through projects procured via the SCAPE Civil Engineering frameworks.

As a trusted partner, we integrate the expertise of our customers, designers, and specialist supply chain partners at the earliest stage of a project’s development. Working together, we create a common understanding of a project and its critical success criteria, applying our expertise to make the best decisions for each project, helping to develop and validate business cases, secure funding, and meet planning and feasibility requirements.

As your project develops, our expert engineers and supply chain partners identify, mitigate, and manage project risks, working closely with designers and architects to make sure the solution can be constructed safely and efficiently and that it meets the needs of your community.

Progressing into the construction phase, our common understanding of a project minimises changes and delivers value for money solutions with full transparency ensured through our open-book contracts.

Delivering Right First Time, we use the latest technologies and modern methods of construction with a performance managed suite of regularly audited KPIs to keep us on track.

Our local social impact and environmental experts support the delivery of every project from the outset, ensuring a positive, sustainable impact in every community we serve as we meet the needs of local stakeholders and progress towards our own ambitions to go Beyond Net Zero Carbon, Generate Zero Waste and Positively Impact More than 1 Million People by 2040.

Building New Futures

Since Balfour Beatty launched its refreshed sustainability strategy – Building New Futures – in 2020 the Group has made significant advances in key areas, including achieving almost 50% of its 2030 £3 billion social value target.

They have also prioritised pushing technological boundaries given one of the main barriers to progress is the gap in the technology that is available to help drive down carbon emissions.

Across the UK, US and Hong Kong, each of their businesses are developing bespoke sustainability action plans to ensure they address specific local challenges and priorities and leave a positive legacy in the communities they serve.

Uniting each of their sustainability action plans are their three 2040 ambitions:

Seahouses Pier Northumberland Balfour Beatty
Warrington West Train Station Balfour Beatty
Regent Street Flyover Leeds Balfour Beatty

"The SCAPE framework allowed input through the early stages of scheme development and access to Balfour Beatty resources to help meet very tight timescales which otherwise may not have been possible."
