What is Social Impact?

Social Impact refers to the positive impact or benefits that construction projects can bring to communities beyond the physical structures they create.

With the key aim of positively contributing to the overall betterment of society, Social Impact encompasses a wide range of outcomes that create the greatest economic, social and environmental value for local communities, so delivering legacy and long-term benefits. This can include supporting local businesses, creating job opportunities, prioritising environmental sustainability, and promoting social inclusion.

Community Stakeholder Event

The Falkirk Council and Balfour Beatty project team hosted a business breakfast on the 27th of September. Presenting an overview of planned works, the event provided community stakeholders with the opportunity to pose any questions to the project team. In addition, it provided a forum to explore and feed into our social impact aspirations for the project.

Working collaboratively with community stakeholders will be key in ensuring that, as well as delivering vital infrastructure improvement works, this project also delivers meaningful and measurable benefits to the surrounding community through a positive social legacy that are led by the needs of the community.
