Balfour Beatty’s Derby site is the support office for our overhead line, cabling and substation construction operations nationwide. Our overhead line training school, plant yards and engineering office are located at this site and visitors will see key activities that go on behind the scenes to support on-site construction.

Visitors will receive an induction to the site, given an overview of a typical construction project and main project roles and then see a practical activity underway on our training towers. This will be followed by a visit to our design department where you will see how visualisations support project construction. As we bring the visit to a close, we will host a Q&A session with some of our current graduates and apprentices.
