Phil Clifton, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s Highways business is featured in Highways Magazine discussing the importance of embedding digital and innovative ways of working when delivering modern road projects for Highways England and road users.
The article explores the business’s digital strategy and discusses the elements that play the most significant roles in delivering modern highways projects, namely the use of digital modelling, project simulation and interactive sensors which allow teams to better collaborate, share data and connect to the surrounding infrastructure. The use of these technologies also contribute to the successful reduction of on-site work in line with Balfour Beatty’s 25% by 2025 strategy.
On the subject of innovation, Phil explains, “Balfour Beatty is investing in digital and in upskilling the workforce. This will allow us to move the industry forward and adapt creatively when it comes to delivering much needed modernised highways infrastructure that aligns with Highways England’s core imperatives. Embedding a culture of digital transformation allows us to embrace everything technology can do.”
