Public Spaces

We create public spaces that are safe, flexible and dynamic. Our goal is to bring people together and create a sense of community. 

We believe that everyone should feel like they belong in the spaces we create. 

We are at the forefront of a vital place-shaping agenda that benefits everyone who lives, works and visits the communities we create. Our team works closely with local authorities, communities, government and the private sector to design projects that meet their unique needs, promote economic growth, and ensure a sustainable future for all. 

To help local authorities achieve the targets set out in the UK Government’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy “Taking Charge” Balfour Beatty Investments’ Urban Fox partnership provides a whole life solution to electric vehicle chargepoints: funding, building, operating and maintaining a range of fast, rapid and slow chargepoints including an innovative 7kW on-street chargepoint which is the first of its kind to the market. Installed into the pavement, the unit fully retracts underground leaving pavements clutter free and accessible for users when not in use. 

Balfour Beatty Living Places partners with local authorities to improve the communities we live, work and play in. Our team engages with local people to understand their needs and aspirations for their communities, so we can shape public spaces where local economies can thrive. As a leader in sustainable working, diversity and social value, we use our expertise to bring real, positive change for our customers. We leave a lasting legacy of connected communities with strong local economies that really work for local people with clean, safe and prosperous streets and social spaces.
