POST TENSIONING specialists Balvac and Freyssinet are to put in joint bids for work on building and civil engineering projects in the UK and Ireland after signing a partnering agreement this week.
The alliance is designed to bring together Balvac's post tensioning remedial strengthening work and Freyssinet's building experience.
Balvac managing director David Moffett said the alliance would work on a project by project basis with Freyssinet leading on the building side and Balvac on the civils side. He said project risks would be split 50/50.
'We hope to get involved earlier in the project cycle which will allow us to bring our expertise in buildability,' he said.
