Delivering our Build to Last Strategy

Build to Last is our strategy for continuous improvement. 

It is the day-to-day guide we use to uphold our purpose, and underpins everything we do.

It’s fundamental to how we’re building a market leading Balfour Beatty for the next 100 years. It’s our platform for sustainable growth, productivity, inclusive talent – all ensuring the best capability to deliver on our promises and our enduring commitment to Zero Harm.  

Our Build to Last strategy is measured against our values:
