Where physical meets digital

  • 22 Jul 2014

I wonder if I am the only one tired of reading articles on “the internet of things.” For the past five years Kathryn Vowles, an Account Manager in our Services business, has been enthusing about it and my response has normally been a sceptical sideways glance. Recently, however, there have been more than one or two instances where the digital world has met with the physical and the results have been impressive.


Nick Pollard, CEO of Construction Services UK offers his views on Crossrail #2 which has recently found itself top of the infrastructure debate in Westminster.


Does Britain still have talent?

  • 24 Jun 2014

Does Britain have talent? I think so, yes! Just take a look at the London Youth Games and the recent exploits of England footballer Raheem Sterling following his excellent performance in the match against Italy in the 2014 World Cup. ‘Topical’, I say, because five years ago that same world class footballer captained his home borough of Brent to victory at the 2009 London Youth Games. It’s gratifying to think we played a small role in his career.


2008 was the year of Zero Harm at Balfour Beatty. Some of you may be familiar with Zero Harm but for those who aren’t, let me take you through the context behind us setting out on this journey.
