Balfour Beatty Airport Team Locker Case Study

30 Apr 2024

Case Study

In January, Balfour Beatty’s Social Impact Manager, Duncan Gardiner, contacted the ESES Communities Team. Their Edinburgh Airport Team was completing a project that required site clearing. As part of their company objectives, they always aim to reduce waste, and they were keen to rehome a large number of metal lockers.


Balfour Beatty is committed to delivering positive social impact from their projects by engaging with community organisations.

“This type of activity allows us to contribute to delivering against our sustainability strategy, Building New Futures, across multiple outcomes at once. We are reducing waste and positively impacting our communities in one single activity.”
