Harkers Island Bridge Replacement

Our team on the Harkers Island Bridge Replacement project in Harkers Island, North Carolina, is racing toward a major milestone!

Crews have been diligently working to finalize all pile driving operations, including placing the final four bridge piers and installing approximately 125 concrete sheet piles.

Congratulations to this incredible team of Relentless Allies whose commitment is helping build a stronger, more connected community!

Blazing Trails

Driving trucks, designing roadways, processing payments to vendors and suppliers, coordinating equipment and overseeing health and safety. What do all these activities have in common? On the Oak Hill Parkway project in Austin, Texas, all these tasks are performed by women.

The number of women in construction is the highest it’s ever been; as of a 2022 study, 14 percent of construction workers are women. 15 women currently work on the Oak Hill Parkway joint venture, 8 of them being Balfour Beatty women. Women on the project come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and hold a wide range of roles on-site, from craft to administration and everything in-between.

“The women on this project have such fundamental roles,” says Ellie McBride, a lead construction engineer on Oak Hill Parkway. “This project is living proof that there are no jobs women can’t do. Nothing is off-limits.”

Hilti EXO-01Exoskeleton

Balfour Beatty Team Puts Exoskeleton Device to the Test

On our Harkers Island Bridge Replacement project in Harkers Island, North Carolina, Balfour Beatty is testing new exoskeleton technology that has exciting potential to reduce injuries and boost efficiency for overhead work.

The Hilti EXO-01 passive assistance exoskeleton uses a steel frame, comfortable body straps and high-tension rubber cables to keep the user’s arms raised overhead under tension, thus requiring less effort to lower the arms. Ultimately, the technology’s goal is to minimize fatigue and prevent injuries by supporting the shoulder joint.

The Harkers Island team is currently testing and evaluating the applications of one EXO-01 exoskeleton device. Their dedication to exploring new tools and technologies that help our teammates and trade partners work more safely is a powerful example of Balfour Beatty’s people-first Zero Harm commitment.
