“At Balfour Beatty we developed a clear strategy to improve fire safety. The elements of the strategy include “Competence, Process and Leadership”. 

We have started to turn the cultural dial so that we have: Competent people who hold accountability and responsibility for fire safety;  That we have robust procedures; That we appropriately design and build fire safe buildings; That we use tested materials and build fire safe buildings; That we use tested materials and We build things in the right way”
