Building is more than bricks and mortar. It is a business that changes lives and leaves legacies. And we’ve been doing just that in Georgia since we opened our doors in 2001, offering unparalleled service and customized building solutions to public and private clients alike. Over that time, Atlanta’s exciting growth into one of the country’s top business cities and cultural attractions has mirrored our own. Under the leadership of Mike Macon, whose Atlanta roots span over three decades, we have had the opportunity to grow with our clients and expand our portfolio to serve several market sectors. What an exciting journey it has been.
Perhaps no project speaks to our city’s vibrancy — or Balfour Beatty’s role in its development — more than Buckhead Atlanta. We had the privilege to be a Relentless Ally for this luxury, mixed-use project from the time it was a mere dream, seeing its 1.5 million square feet through construction to become the true city within a city it is today. We have also been entrusted with projects that will mold our state’s future leaders like South Forsyth High School, Wheeler High School and renovations to Georgia Tech’s Mason Building and many other projects on their campus. The dynamic business environments we have created for Fortune giants and local companies alike will attract and retain top talent, while retail spaces like Sun Dial Restaurant atop the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel are beckoning entertainment backdrops. Bolstering Atlanta's thriving population growth, our active high-rise multifamily projects such as Alta Midtown, Piedmont House and Icon Midtown will provide a place to live for more than 2,000 Atlantans.
In 2013, we celebrated the completion of our 10,000th military housing unit, a milestone that encompassed privatized projects on 40 installations in 23 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.). Pioneers in Public Private Partnership (PPP) and design-build collaboration projects, our team is able to provide a full-service package to meet a diverse spectrum of client needs. No matter the size, scope or complexity of a project, no general contractor in Georgia is more trusted to deliver than Balfour Beatty.
