Supplier innovation gateway

Supplier innovation

How it works

Our Innovation Gateway is a tool that allows both new and existing suppliers to submit innovative products, materials and services for consideration by Balfour Beatty.

If you can save us time or money or have an innovation that could reduce health and safety risks in our business, increase productivity or improve the quality of service we deliver to our customers, then we’d like to hear from you.

We encourage you to tell us about your new or existing innovative products once they are ready for market. We can then evaluate your idea and if they are deemed workable, we can pilot them before making them available to our projects.
