What They Are Saying

  • “Balfour Beatty’s early involvement, starting with the kick-off meeting with County and City code and zoning officials, played a critical role in the MetLife project’s success. Your team’s ongoing ability to adapt to evolving conditions enabled us to meet client goals despite the challenges presented by the project’s phasing, complexity and abbreviated timeline. As a result of the headquarters’ success, the project is now being used to guide the design of other MetLife facilities around the world.”

The Balfour Beatty team worked diligently to control the schedule; stay focused on priorities and maintained exceptional quality in the level of workmanship all around. Like most projects there were plenty of revisions made throughout construction and your team always took those in stride and did not let the additional scope compromise the schedule or quality.

  • “What stands out to me most about the project is the level of partnership and collaboration that your team provided. The interest in our success was genuine from top to bottom which suggests that there were strong linkages internally within the Balfour Beatty team. You became a trusted partner that understood our dual goals around developing a sustainable office space as well as one that achieved our ‘Workplace of the Future vision.’ Thank you for your role in helping our combined team achieve a level of success that we’ve not seen in previous projects. The awards are nice, but what the outcome means to the success of our Duke Energy teammates is immeasurable.”

  • “This fast-track project was completed on an extremely tight, urban site, which required the Balfour Beatty/Shelco team to coordinate the delivery of materials during off-peak hours. From the beginning of the project, there was a strong commitment to achieving our vision, which was accomplished through outstanding communication from project managers with the architect and the University. Every member of the team demonstrated a collaborative spirit designed to see the project to a successful and timely close-out.”

  • “I’ve been very pleased with partnership with both firms, as has my on site manager. They’re proactive, keep continual lines of communication open and flowing, and have really made the process pain free from my perspective. Once we were able to agree upon “the vision,” they really took off and ran with it.”
