We broke new ground by launching a partnership with a local council that crosses traditional outsourcing boundaries.
Under a £250m, 10-year contract with North East Lincolnshire Council we will delivered a package of services spanning regeneration, highways, transport and planning, asset management and architectural support.
The partnership will deliver 3,500 new and improved homes, cut deaths and injuries on our roads by 33% and 50% respectively, secure at least £570m of inward investment into the borough and deliver key regeneration projects.

As well as cutting costs and improving services, we have committed to meeting 140 KPI targets that add up to a significant improvement in quality of life for local people. Our risks and rewards link directly to how well we succeed.
Integration is key. Both parties are incentivised to work together to maximise results, and over 300 council staff have transferred to a team that integrates expertise from our facilities management business and Parsons Brinckerhoff.
It's a fantastic opportunity to accelerate regeneration of the borough. Balfour Beatty is working with North East Lincolnshire Council to create 4,200 new jobs and generate 250 training, work or apprenticeship placements.
