Balfour Beatty has featured in New Civil Engineer celebrating the one-year anniversary of its Strategic Design Partnership (SDP) with Mott MacDonald, AtkinsRealis and Jacobs.

In the interview, experts from SDP talk about the challenges and opportunities to re-frame the designer-contractor relationship, discussing new and improved ways of delivering design solutions.

In the interview, Balfour Beatty's Technical Director Ian Askew said: “We’ve recognised that we can achieve much more together than we can as individual businesses by pooling knowledge on things like MMC [Modern Methods of Construction]... we’re bringing together and working on things like performance metrics for offsite construction, which I think as an industry we’ve really struggled with."
