Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, is hosting a presentation for analysts at the National Operations Centre in Manchester today to showcase its support services division following the success of the professional services teach-in hosted in New York last year.
Support services is a dynamic area of our business where the nature of services, types of contracts and competitive landscape are evolving, particularly in the local authority, facilities management and power markets. During the afternoon, Balfour Beatty management will make presentations focusing on the characteristics of this marketplace and the opportunities which the Group is pursuing.
