The company was founded by a group of construction and architecture professionals, led by Ian Macpherson, who left Bovis in 1990 hoping to bring in some new, more collaborative ways of working in the traditionally combative construction industry.

The Mace startup team got its first break in 1997 when it beat Bovis and was appointed as project and construction managers on British Airways’ Waterside headquarters at Heathrow.[2] The company went on to deliver the London Eye on the South Bank and The Venetian in Macau. In early 2009 Mace was appointed to deliver the fixed price The Shard tower above London Bridge station.[3]

Mace has grown by combining commercial construction with moves into the public sector (where it now delivers project management to local authorities, delivery of schools and academies and healthcare consultancy) and infrastructure, including aviation, rail, water, highways and a number of large scale waste and energy management programmes around the British Isles.

Mace rebranded in 2008, becoming Mace Group, expanding its service offer, spanning consultancy services and construction across the entire property life cycle.

“Balfour Beatty Construction’s roots date back to 1933, when two of thier regional construction businesses were founded–one in Miami, Florida, and the other in Washington, DC. These businesses, along with several others around the country, were focused on providing quality construction services, excellent relationships with clients and subcontractors, and innovative industry leadership. These businesses were built around talented people committed to meaningful community involvement. Drawn to their early approach, Centex acquired these regionally-based construction companies and formed Centex Construction.

Centex Construction operated through early 2007, when it was acquired by Balfour Beatty plc, a global leader in engineering and construction. Since then, the company has been known as Balfour Beatty Construction. 2009 marked 100 years of excellence in the international construction and engineering community.” (source)

Currently Balfour Beatty Construction has 2,400 employees.
