Balfour Beatty Construction’s roots date back to 1933, when two of our regional construction businesses were founded--one in Miami, Florida, and the other in Washington, DC. These businesses, along with several others around the country, were focused on providing quality construction services, excellent relationships with clients and subcontractors, and innovative industry leadership. These businesses were built around talented people committed to meaningful community involvement. Drawn to our early approach, Centex acquired these regionally-based construction companies and formed Centex Construction.
Centex Construction operated through early 2007, when we were acquired by Balfour Beatty plc, a global leader in engineering and construction. Since then, our company has been known as Balfour Beatty Construction. 2009 marked 100 years of excellence in the international construction and engineering community.
