Balfour Beatty Adds to California Project Slate
Balfour Beatty recently announced seven new projects in California. According to a company press release, contracts range from k-12 schools to correctional/justice and other federal projects. The projects were awarded on behalf of California school districts, San Diego County and the United States Marine Corp.
The London based company has been successful in its push to win more infrastructure and government contracts stateside. In it's annual earnings call in March, the company reported that its U.S. profits doubled from the previous fiscal year to $67.2 million. Brian Cahill, president of Balfour Beatty's California operations pointed up the abundance of opportunity within these building segments, like education, despite the tumultuous economy and a potential recession on the horizon. “We’re seeing a strong pipeline of work,” Cahill told Construction Dive.
According to the press release the projects are:
Fontana USD’s new Secondary Academy: $99 million
Marine Corps Recruit Depo, San Diego’s P-315 Mess Hall Replacement: $56.5 million
San Diego USD’s (SDUSD) Kavod Charter School: $28.8 million
SDUSD King Chavez Academy of Excellence’s Modernization: $28 million
Fontana USD’s Sierra Lakes Elementary School Renovation: $16 million
La Mesa-Spring Valley School District’s (LMSVSD) Entry Improvements and Slope Mitigation: $4 million
San Diego County’s East Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility Renovation and House Softening Improvements: $3.4 million
Compared to some of the company's other U.S. jobs, such as the LAX people mover, these projects are small in scope. The projects range in scale from $4 million to $99 million.
