Balfour Beatty enters deal with three consultants

Balfour beatty thameslink

Atkins, Mott MacDonald and WSP have entered into a partnership with Balfour Beatty to become its three UK strategic design consultant partners.

The move will see the three consulting engineering firms work together on Balfour projects, with the aim of driving improvement in areas such as health and safety through design and value engineering.

Robin Bashford will move from Balfour Beatty’s Major Projects business to head up the team in a new role as strategic design consultant partnership director.

Balfour Beatty’s major projects business and executive committee sponsor for the partnership Stephen Tarr claimed the new partnership was “collaboration in its purest form.”

Atkins infrastructure division managing director Mike McNicholas said: “Infrastructure investment continues to be a high priority for the UK, but clients couldn’t be clearer in their message to industry that we need to deliver it differently to provide better value and outcomes for them, their end users and those funding the projects.”
