Balfour Beatty wins contract

Contractor Balfour Beatty was named as Ealing Council’s preferred bidder for its £300m public-private partnership school building project yesterday. The contract win, Balfour Beatty’s fourth this month, will see the firm deliver upgrades and extensions to 14 of the borough’s schools, along with the construction of a new site in North Greenford. IT specialist RM Group won a smaller £39m contract to overhaul several schools’ information communication technology systems.
