The FTSE 250-listed firm said the frameworks allow local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and other public sector bodies to commission works "through a procurement process that provides the fastest route to market and utilises early contractor engagement to deliver best value design solutions".

Balfour Beatty’s chief executive, Leo Quinn said: "These frameworks enable us to build on our strong partnership with Scape.
